MultiFileSelector/File browser widget

I would like to display a MultiFileSelector/File browser widget. I should be able to browse to a folder containing files, choose multiple files, do something with the contents of the files, and display results. Kind of like FileInput widget, but for multiple files
I have tried MultiFileSelector, but it doesn’t allow browsing into a folder to choose multiple files. I don’t mind whether the contents of the chosen files are automatically downloaded or I get just the file paths. Any pointers will be great.

@philippjfr, I saw the final design but found no code on how to generate the cool final design in the pull request. Any pointers? Sorry, I’m not so experienced with using github :slightly_smiling_face:

It’s described here and will be available in the next release.
