A General Overview Of File Uploading

A General Overview Of File Uploading

Trongate has everything you need to build your own custom file uploaders.  The process for building a file uploader is similar, in principle, to any normal form building situation.  This means that to build your own uploader you'll require a form, some validation tests, and so on.  For file uploading though, you'll require a destination folder as well.

Below is a list of all the main parts that make up a custom file builder.

  • a webpage with an uploader form
  • a method for receiving post requests from the uploader
  • some validation tests to make sure the submitted file meets our requirements
  • a means of gracefully dealing with errors
  • a destination folder where files are to be uploaded to
  • a little bit of configuration so that the uploader knows what to do with the file
  • a success message or page

As you can see, most of this list is made of entities that you'd expect to see in any ordinary form building scenario.
