Upload Plugin 3.0

The Upload Plugin is an attempt to sanely upload files using techniques garnered from packages such as MeioUpload , UploadPack and PHP documentation. It uses the excellent Flysystem <> library to handle file uploads, and can be easily integrated with any image library to handle thumbnail extraction to your exact specifications.


Media Plugin is too complicated, and it was a PITA to merge the latest updates into MeioUpload, so here I am, building yet another upload plugin. I'll build another in a month and call it "YAUP".


  • CakePHP 3.x
  • PHP 5.4+

What does this plugin do?

  • The Upload plugin will transfer files from a form in your application to (by default) the webroot/files directory organised by the model name and upload field name.
  • It can also move files around programatically. Such as from the filesystem.
  • The path to which the files are saved can be customised.
  • The plugin can also upload multiple files at the same time to different fields.
  • Each upload field can be configured independently of each other, such as changing the upload path etc.
  • Uploaded file information can be stored in a data store, such as a MySQL database.
  • You can upload files to both disk as well as distributed datastores such as S3 or Dropbox.
  • It can optionally delete the files on record deletion
  • It offers multiple validation providers but doesn't validate automatically

This plugin does not do

  • Create thumbnails. You can use a custom Transformer to create modified versions of file uploads.
  • It will not convert files between file types. You cannot use it convert a JPG to a PNG
  • It will not add watermarks to images for you.
