File uploader for Deployd

File uploader Module for Deployd

A working demo is available.

This module provides functionnality to upload files within Deployd. The uploaded files will be stored in the public folder of Deployd and the filenames will be stored in a collection.

Don't hesitate to fill an issue if you find a bug or need a feature.

Go to the base directory of your Deployd project and enter:

$ npm install dpd-fileupload --save

Once installed, you can add a resource of type fileupload in the dashboard.

By default, the module will create a folder called "upload" inside the public directory. You can then access your files by calling: http://localhost:2403/upload/filename.extension

If you need to, you can change the name of the directory in the dashboard under CONFIG.

Method POST or PUT (set content type to "multipart/form-data"), send "subdir" as request param to save the file in a sub directory. Any request parameter sent will be stored in the resource object.

Working demo available here: https://github.com/NicolasRitouet/dpd-fileupload-demo

Response of a successful upload:

[{
    filename: 'screenshot.png',
    subdir: "images",
    creationDate: 1389946339569,
    id: '2f4c752310e2bbae',
    filesize: '75148412',
    optionalParam:'foobar'
}, {
    filename: 'screenshot (1).png',
    subdir: "images",
    creationDate: 1389946339233,
    id: 'ef43f52310e2bbae',
    filesize: '85412',
    optionalParam:'foobar'
}, ...]

Method GET

dpd.fileupload.get(function(errresult) {
    console.log(result);
});

The response:

[{
    filename: 'screenshot.png',
    subdir: "images",
    creationDate: 1389946339569,
    id: '2f4c752310e2bbae',
    filesize: '75148412',
    optionalParam:'foobar'
}, {
    filename: 'screenshot (1).png',
    subdir: "images",
    creationDate: 1389946339233,
    id: 'ef43f52310e2bbae',
    filesize: '8441547',
    optionalParam:'foobar'
}, ...]

Since we upload the files into the /public folder, you can access your files like this: http://localhost:2403/upload/subdir/filename.extension replace:

  • "upload" by the folder your set in the dashboard
  • "subdir" by the value you set for subdir. (nothing if you haven't given a subdir param)
  • "filename.extension" by the name of the file your uploaded

If you would like more security and some rights management to get the files, fill an issue about this and I might work on this feature.

Method DELETE

    dpd.fileupload.delete(id, function(errresult) {
        if (err) alert(err);
        console.log(result);
    });
