h5ai makes browsing directories on HTTP web servers more pleasant. Directory listings get styled in a modern way and browsing through the directories is enhanced by different views, a breadcrumb and a tree overview.
h5ai was originally designed to work with Apache's mod_autoindex. This use case is still supported, although the main focus is on the PHP version of h5ai. The PHP version allows features that need server side processing of your files (e.g. thumbnail generation) and is working with other HTTP web servers too. Tested HTTP web servers are: Apache httpd, lighttpd, nginx and Cherokee. The front end supports all modern browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and also IE7+ (with some features disabled in IE7+8).
