Feature: #90548 - Download multiple files and folders in filelist

See Issue #90548

Description

From time to time, editors might need to download files and folders, which are stored in the TYPO3 installation. Therefore, the filelist module has been improved to provide a couple of possibilities for downloading the stored files and folders.

The action bar on the top of the listing now features the “Download” option. It is shown, as soon as a file or folder is selected. It can therefore be used to download a specific selection of files and folders.

The “Download” option has furthermore been added to the context menu as well as the secondary menu. Those options can be used to download a single file or folder.

Administrators can furthermore specify, which file extensions are allowed for their users to be downloaded. Therefore, following user TSconfig is available, expecting a comma-separated list of file extensions:

# Either an allow list
options.file_list.fileDownload.allowedFileExtensions = png,svg,pdf

# or a deny list
options.file_list.fileDownload.disallowedFileExtensions = yaml,exe,html

It’s also possible to completely disable the file download for users:

options.file_list.fileDownload.enabled = 0

Note

When downloading folders, all readable subfolders and their files are included in the generated ZIP file as well.

Impact

It’s now possible to download files and folders in the filelist module.
