DENVER - Cloud Elements, a leading cloud API integration and aggregation service, announced the launch of Filebrowser.io, a free, open source, cloud file browser.
Developers can integrate the open source library into the application, allowing customers to access cloud storage services without leaving the application, Cloud Elements said.
Filebrowser.io connects to these services through the company's Cloud Elements Hub API.
"In the API economy, the value of the application lies in the API services, and user interfaces are a means to assist developers in building their applications faster," said Mark Geene, Cloud Elements CEO and co-founder.
"This hybrid business model is the natural evolution of what is happening with software. As the new breed of iPaaS, Cloud Elements has focused on making developers more productive in building applications that easily connect with lots of other cloud services and, therefore, we will be offering all of our UIs for free and open source."
Cloud Elements said the only charge will be for the use of advanced API services. The company said it is the first iPaaS (integration platform as a service) to make its user interfaces available through open source licenses, providing developers with maximum flexibility in tailoring the user experience within their applications.
