Joomla! is an Open Source CMS which allows the user to create websites with ease. It is rich in features that helps even a novice to set up a fully functional and a secure CMS.

Joomla! 3 is the current stable version which is available to users. Joomla! 4 will be the next generation which is going to use more modern technologies.

Joomla! has a built in Media Manager to manage media files, such that even a novice can easily upload and use them in his articles etc. In Joomla! 4, the media manager will get rewritten from scratch with a JavaScript based (Vue.js) client and a REST like API as data endpoint. Through this endpoint it is possible to make GET, POST, PUT and DELETE requests to fetch and manipulate the media files. On the server side are the requests forwarded to an adapter, which processes the data.

The aim of this project is to add more cloud based file adapter’s through the Joomla plugin system for the media manager which allow the other developers to extend the capability of it. They can add a cloud file system to Joomla! which allows the users to interact with media files the same way as with local files.
