Epic #83669: Improve file list / file browser
FileList and ElementBrowser must implement a paginate system for files
The current system to browse records in a FAL mountpoint doesn't use offset / limit to display result list. This can be an issue if the folder have a large amount of files, especially in remote mount point.
On our current project, we have implemented a specific driver (using an API) to a document warehouse which have around 1M records with 5 subfolders (and some 'tags'). The service API implements a paginate browsing system inside queries.
But from now, we can't use paginate as FileList and ElementBrowser doesn't use parameters
$numberOfItems. These parameters always have zero as value.
Could it be possible to add browsing on results on next major version ?
In addition to a paginate system, a simple search field as on record list could enhance usability in cases with large numbers of records.

In one project (TYPO3 6.2), the user_upload folder contains 7000+ images, because user_upload is the default upload folder when uploading images from a content element or RTE.
The ElementBrowser crash every time an editor try to open it.
In recent version of TYPO3 (7 LTS), we can hook1 to the default upload folder guessing : we will create one folder for each month (like in wordpress) to split the images in several folders.
We will also move the existing files into those monthly folder tree. This will be easy, thanks to the FAL.

Be aware, that there exist a TYPO3 initiative called Digital Asset Management which introduces a overhaul of the filelist and filebrowser functionality...
