   The software's web interface boasts several key features that make file management simple and efficient. Users can upload files, create directories, and remove files or directories with ease.

   In addition to the web interface, Surfer provides a command-line tool. This can be installed using npm by executing 'sudo npm -g install cloudron-surfer'. Once installed, the command-line tool can be configured using your app domain and an API token created via the Surfer admin user interface. File operations such as uploading ('surfer put [file]') are made simple via this tool.
