A file selection class build for ipywidgets without any extra dependencies.

box.children = tuple([widgets.HTML("<h2>%s</h2>" % (self.path,))] + buttons)
# example usage:
# f = FileBrowser()
# f.widget()
# <interact with widget, select a path>
# in a separate cell:
# f.path # returns the selected path
