I there anyway to output the files of a specific folder in a document library?

Listing them will be like

But how do I tell it to look a specific folder? In CSOM please Tried the below answer but it did not work

  • Use http://site/_api/web/getfolderbyserverrelativeurl('folder url') /files. – Akhoy Aug 1 '15 at 10:01

Below PowerShell script gets files from the given folder recursively:

Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.dll"
Function IterateFolderRecurresive([Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Folder] $fld,     [Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext] $ctx)
Write-Host "Files from " $fld.Name
$files = $fld.Files
foreach($file in $files)

    Write-Host $file.Name

foreach($subFolder in $fld.Folders)
    IterateFolderRecurresive $subFolder $ctx


$webUrl = Read-Host "Enter your web Url"
#Start Url from relative to Document Library
$folderRelativeUrl ="Documents/Folder2.0/" 
$password = Read-Host -Prompt "Enter password" -AsSecureString 
$ctx = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($webUrl) 
$credentials = New-Object System.Net.NetworkCredential("[UserName]",   $password) 
$ctx.Credentials = $credentials
$web = $ctx.Web 

$folder = $web.GetFolderByServerRelativeUrl($web.ServerRelativeUrl + $folderRelativeUrl)

IterateFolderRecurresive $folder $ctx

Hope it will help to you..
