HFS 3 will have both web-based (but separated) front-end and back-end.

About the front-end, this is the logic i want to apply:
when you access it, you get a web-app for browsing folders and files, without page reloading.
This is how the server will behave on requests


switch on url resource type
    case 'file': serve file
    case 'link': redirect
    case 'folder':
        switch on $format
            case nothing: serve front-end web app, with this folder already selected
            case 'tar': serve archive
            case 'zip': serve archive
            default: error


i planned to use socket.io for blazing fast communication, and extjs for the GUI.
