Welcome to the openwebfolder project

Goals

The modest goal of this project is achieve feature parity with Internet Explorer regarding WebDAV support. Internet Explorer itself does not contain any WebDAV support. However, it does offer hooks to Microsoft's WebDAV component, usually called "web folders".

In Internet Explorer, there are two ways to initiate opening a web folder for a given URL:

  1. by using the "open" dialog, selecting "open as webfolder", and
  2. by using the IE-specific "folder" CSS behavior, documented in "anchorClick Behavior".

What it does

openwebfolder itself does not contain any platform-independant WebDAV related code. It just adds hooks so that Microsoft's "Webfolder" WebDAV client can be invoked in a similar way like in IE. In particular:

Note: Microsoft Vista does not contain the Webfolder client, thus this plugin isn't going to work out of the box. Installing MS Office may help (not tested).

Work on the initial release of this extension was sponsored by <green/>bytes GmbH.
