Diplo Media Download for Umbraco


This is an Umbraco 8 package that allows you to download files from the Umbraco Media Library as a zip archive. You can download both files and folders. When downloading a folder it can include any nested folders and preserves the correct paths (so in theory you could download your entire media library in one zip archive file!).

It adds a new menu item - called Download - to the Actions menu when in the Media section. This triggers a dialogue that prompts you to confirm the download. If the media item selected is a Folder then you can choose whether to include any nested folders within the folder.

Diplo.MediaDownload is a .NET Framework class library that contains all the C# code.

The client side code is in the ~/App_Plugins/DiploMedia/ folder of this site.


Utilises SharpZipLib (which ships as a dependency of Umbraco 8) to create the Zip files.

Test Site Logins

These are demo logins for the example site:

Admin User

This is a user with access to the Media section:

Email: admin@example.com

Password: 7TcNDM&jM[

User Without Access

This user doesn't have access to the Media section so shouldn't be able to call the download API controller directly:

Email: nomedia@example.com

Password: sAKlTy[{g=

Controller: /Umbraco/backoffice/DiploMedia/Media/Download/12345

Building Package(s)

The folder Buildpackage contains a batch file called Build.bat that can be executed to create both the NuGet and Umbraco package versions.

Note: You need it to contain the correct path to MSBuild.exe on your system.

If the build goes OK then you'll find the packages in the BuildPackage\Packages folder.
