Many users want to upload a lot of files in a given directory structure. The mass file upload should support uploading whole directory structures just like ameos_dragndropupload. The drag&drop possibility there is also a very user-friendly feature.

Currently, both the uploading of a whole folder as well as drag&drop are features that are not possible with the underlying technique (SWFupload // swfupload.org). So we will need to wait for that before we can integrate it in TYPO3.

The swfupload is gone and we have a HTML5 Drag'n'Drop box, but it stops on directories.

Folders aren't included in the specs but it seams to work. So maybe we can extend our HTML5/JavaScript uploader. Some information can be found in http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3590058/does-html5-allow-drag-drop-upload-of-folders-or-a-folder-tree

Looks like it is only supported by chrome. With some webkit named functions.

IE11 does not support this, but we could easily add this to TYPO3 v10.0.
