    nodefupublic

    Description

    multipart/form-data saving to disk made easy.

    Requirements

    Install

    npm install nodefu
    

    Usage

    var express = require('express')
    var nodefu  = require('nodefu')
     
    var app = express()
    app.use(nodefu())

    You can access the files in the request object and save them to disk like this:

    req.files.fieldName.toFile(path,[filename],callback)
    • fieldName: the name of the input field on your html
    • path: string containing the save path
    • filename: optional parameter string that specifies the name of the file ( if none is passed, the file name will be the same )
    • callback: callback function with err and data attributes, respectively

    And to save the uploaded files to mongodb, first you have to specify the mongodb path when using the middleware:

    app.use(nodefu('mongodb://127.0.0.1:27017/test'))

    And now you can call this method from the request object:

    req.files.fieldName.toMongo([filename],callback)
    • fieldName: the name of the input field on your html
    • filename: optional parameter string that specifies the name of the file ( if none is passed, the file name will be the same )
    • callback: callback function with err and data attributes, respectively

    You can also access data passed through multipart/form-data other than files using

    req.fields.otherFieldName
    HTML
    <form id="uploadForm" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="/actionRoute" method="post">
        <input type="file" name="fieldName"></input>
        <input type="text" name="otherFieldName"></input>
        <input type="submit" name="submit" value="Upload File"></input>
    </form>
    Angular

    If you are using angular, I recommend using the ng-file-upload module. You can check it out on here.
