node-upload-progress

It's a Node.js module to handle upload and upload-progress

It's a Node.js module to handle upload and upload-progress.

$ npm install node-upload-progress

or

# package.json
# ...
"dependencies": {
  "node-upload-progress": "latest"
}
# ...

$ npm install
var app = require('http');
var uploadProgress = require('node-upload-progress');

uploadHandler = new uploadProgress.UploadHandler;

The uploadHandler.uploadDir is the path where the files will be saved. Without this configuration the files will be saved in a path based on process.env.TMP.

uploadHandler.configure(function() {
  this.uploadDir = __dirname + '/uploads';
});

app.createServer(function(req, res) {
  if (req.url === '/upload') {
    uploadHandler.upload(req, res);
    return;
  }
  # ...
}

Configuring the uploadHandler.onEnd = customOnEndHandler, you can write your own response body.

# ...
uploadHandler.configure(function() {
  this.uploadDir = "" + __dirname + "/uploads";
  this.onEnd = customOnEndHandler;
});

function customOnEndHandler(req, res){      
  res.writeHead 200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'}
  res.end('Upload received');
}

app.createServer(function(req, res) {
  if (req.url === '/upload') {
    uploadHandler.upload(req, res);
    return;
  }
  # ...
}

If you want to use an upload progress similar to Nginx Upload Progress Module, you can easily do it using the progress handler.

# ...
app.createServer(function(req, res) {
  if (req.url.match(/\/upload\?X\-Progress\-ID=.+/)) {
    uploadHandler.upload(req, res);
    return;
  } else if (req.url.match(/\/progress\?X\-Progress\-ID=.+/)) {
    uploadHandler.progress(req, res);
    return;
  }
  # ...
}
<script>
	$(function(){
		$('#form_upload').submit(function(){
			var xProgressID = guidGenerator();
			$(this).attr('action', '/upload?X-Progress-ID=' + xProgressID);
			var uploadIntervalID = setInterval(function(){
				$.get('/progress?X-Progress-ID=' + xProgressID, function(data){
					if(data.status === 'done'){
						clearInterval(uploadIntervalID);
					}
					updateViewUploadStatus(data);
				}).error(function(){clearInterval(uploadIntervalID)});
			}, 250);
			return true;
		});
		
		function updateViewUploadStatus(data){
			# ...
		}
		
		// http://stackoverflow.com/a/105074/464685
		function guidGenerator() {
			return (S4()+S4()+"-"+S4()+"-"+S4()+"-"+S4()+"-"+S4()+S4()+S4());
		}
		
		function S4() {
			return (((1+Math.random())*0x10000)|0).toString(16).substring(1);
		}
	});
</script>
# ...
<form action="/upload?X-Progress-ID=1" enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" id="form_upload" target="iframe_upload">
