Server side File Selector using Javascript

P: 1
My files and folders are on the server side under the folder image_depot and then i want to make a administrative html page to select the files in a tree fashion means multiple selection by expnding and compressing + and -. and finally i need an array of selected file locations with reference to image_depot. Is this possible with javascript.
I know Javascript can not directly access the server files but i have node.js (ExpressJS) running on server end so i can provide the file locations to the client using node.js but in client end i need a tree structure and multiple selection and array.
I dont want to upload the file just want to have the locations of selection in array

I think there are some JavaScript tree libraries out there. as long as you provide JS with the file/directory names that shouldn’t be a problem.

PS. just put the directory structure in a nested list, then JS can do formatting and expanding/collapsing quite easily.
