So I've run some small, personal websites for a few years now, with a couple of different CMSes over that time. But I've realised that most of what I do with the website is make available files of mine (mostly software and videos) that I have created to the public at large.

So what I'm looking for is some kind of CMS focussed around, or good at making files available.

Ideally I'd be able to:

  • Upload files either through the software/CMS or pull from existing file structure
  • Add title, description etc.
  • Add tags or a single category
  • Have the public-facing front end display some relativley friendly menu of files, possibly a search function

The end result would be something like (going back in time a bit) Fileplanet or whatever. Or more modern, I guess Sourceforge/Cnet, but without all the uncessary extra steps and cruft they have.

  • What CMS in particular? – rrirower Jun 6 '17 at 19:41
  • @rrirower Any. Currently don't have anything set up. So what I'm asking for is ideally a CMS intended for hosting a file repository/library, although I suppose a good addon for another CMS would also do the job. – CMaster Jun 7 '17 at 8:38
