Filemanager configuration

Here is a default configuration file for Laravel Simple Filemanager. Which you'll find in config/filemanager.php.

return [
    'base_route'      => 'admin/filemanager',
    'middleware'      => ['web', 'auth'],
    'allow_format'    => 'jpeg,jpg,png,gif,webp',
    'max_size'        => 500,
    'max_image_width' => 1024,
    'image_quality'   => 80,

You can change the value whatever you need. The max_size value is in KB and max_image_width value in pixel and image_quality value in percentage.


Laravel TinyMce Configuration

Integrate TinyMce with Laravel Simple Filemanager is very easy! You just need to set the filemanager.tinyMceCallback in your TinyMCE file_browser_callback. An example is given below.

<script src="//cdn.tinymce.com/4/tinymce.min.js"></script>
    window.onload = function () {

            selector: '#tinymce',
            height: 200,
            plugins: 'image',
            toolbar: 'bold italic underline | image',
            branding: false,
            file_browser_callback: filemanager.tinyMceCallback

<textarea id="tinymce"></textarea>

Note: For TinyMCE 5 version just use the file_picker_callback instead of file_browser_callback.

file_picker_callback: filemanager.tinyMceCallback,


Laravel CKEditor Configuration

For integrating CKEditor with Laravel Simple Filemanager, just set the filemanager.ckBrowseUrl in filebrowserBrowseUrl. Here an example is given below.

<script src="https://cdn.ckeditor.com/4.14.0/standard/ckeditor.js"></script>
	window.onload = function () {
		CKEDITOR.replace('ckeditor', {
	        filebrowserBrowseUrl: filemanager.ckBrowseUrl,

<textarea id="ck"></textarea>


Laravel Summernote Configuration

Integrate Summernote WYSIWYG with Simple Laravel Filemanager just adds the button for picking the file from filemanager window.

<!-- include summernote css/js -->
<link href="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/summernote@0.8.16/dist/summernote.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/summernote@0.8.16/dist/summernote.min.js"></script>

window.onload = function () {
    var editor = $('.summernote');
        height: ($(window).height() - 300),
        focus: true,
        buttons: {
            filemanager: filemanager.btnSummernote
        toolbar: [
            ['style', ['bold', 'italic', 'underline']],
            ['color', ['color']],
            ['para', ['ul', 'ol', 'paragraph']],
            ['fontsize', ['fontsize']],
            ['custom', ['picture', 'filemanager']]

    window.addEventListener('filemanager.select', function (e) {
        var data = e.detail.data;
        $(data.note).summernote('editor.insertImage', data.absolute_url)

<div class="summernote"></div>


Single File Picker

Sometimes we need to pick a file URL into our input textbox. To pick a file URL in a textbox, Use the filemanager.selectFile function by passing the input id. Here is an example.

<input type="text" id="profile-photo">
<button onclick="filemanager.selectFile('profile-photo')">Choose</button>

If you pick an image file and want to preview the image after selecting the image then the Laravel Simple Filemanager will do it automatically. Just add an image tag with id following the rule input-id-preview. For example, here we are picking the image for profile-photo input id. If we want to preview the image then we have to add an image with id like profile-photo-preview.

<input type="text" id="profile-photo">
<img src="" id="profile-photo-preview">
<button onclick="filemanager.selectFile('profile-photo')">Choose</button>


Bulk File Picker

To pick multiple file use the filemanager.bulkSelectFile function by passing a callback function. After the selection, you will get the JSON data into your callback function. Here an example is given below.

Define your callback.

window.myBulkSelectCallback = function (data) {
  // the JSON data will come here

Add the button for bulk file selection.

<button onclick="filemanager.bulkSelectFile('myBulkSelectCallback')">Choose Images</button>



Event Listeners

You can listen to the event and get the data during single and multiple file selection.

For single file selection.

window.addEventListener('filemanager.select', function (e) {
    // single object

For multiple file selection.

window.addEventListener('filemanager.bulkselect', function (e) {
    // object Array
