OmniROM Gets an Open-Source File Manager
Omni is an interesting project, with a lot of original contributions. Recently we talked about OpenDelta, an innovative OTA system created by XDA Senior Recognized Developer Chainfire. Now it’s time to present you the built-in file manager with cloud integration: DocumentsUI by XDA Senior Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD.
The new file manager is integrated into the frameworks, so it doesn’t have to be installed as a standalone app. It’s a very interesting move, and it can be assumed that many other ROMs will incorporate this open-source project.
DocumentsUI allows users to perform simple file operations like copying, pasting, deleting, and sharing. Moreover, it has Google Drive integrations, so files stored there can be easily accessed. Omni is demonstrating that open source projects can bring a variety of new things that can be very useful for all custom ROM users. And since it’s an open project, everyone can add their own contributions to make it even better.
More information about this file manager can be found in this Git commit. DocumentsUI can be found in all nightlies released after December 9th. It’s also worth mentioning that OmniROM is available for more than 20 devices now, and the list of supported phones is still growing.
