The metadata is an array. To get the information out of the array you need to loop through it. Example code to display files in a table

echo '<p>There are ' . count($metadata['contents']) . ' files in ' . $metadata['path'] . ':</p>
<table border=1 cellpadding=10>
foreach($metadata['contents'] as $file)
    echo '<tr>
   <td>' . $file['path'] . '</td>
   <td>' . $file['size'] . '</td>
echo '</table>';
