What is the Select File Provider?

The Select File provider allows selecting and adding images, videos, and other files to components used in your apps. It is used in several places across Fliplet, including galleries, interactive graphics, offline videos, and optionally grids and sliders. This allows you to upload, edit, or delete files directly from the component settings, rather than from the file manager.
