File Upload

  • Support multiple file upload
  • Files info are stored in files property using field name as key
 { 
  files = {
   file1 = { -- input name
    name = "a.txt",
    type = "text/plain",
    size = 10240,
    tmp_name = 1454551131.5459
   },
   file2 = {
    name = "b.png",
    type = "image/png",
    size = 20480,
    tmp_name = 1454553275.6401
   }
 }
  • Define path for files upload or default to logs directory (follow ngx.config.prefix)
  • Default file will be saved to tmp name (require moving action to destination)
local resty_post = require "resty.post"
local post = resty_post:new({
 path = "/my/path",           -- path upload file will be saved
 chunk_size = 10240,          -- default 8192
 no_tmp = true,               -- if set original name will uses or generate random name
 name = function(name, field) -- overide name with user defined function
  return name.."_"..field 
 end
})
post:read()

Array Input

Support multiple input of similar name

It is useful for thing like HTML input checkboxes or select in multiple mode

<input type="checkbox" name="check_multi" value="1">
<input type="checkbox" name="check_multi" value="2">
<select name="select_multi" multiple>
 <option value="">Please select</option>
 <option value="1">One</option>
 <option value="2">Two</option>
</select>

converted into

{
 check_multi = { 1, 2 },
 select_multi = { 1, 2 } 
}

When checked one similar with ngx.req.get_post_args

{
 check_multi = 2,
 select_multi = 1
}

Support array input with name

This is like supporting input which mimic class and property, which can be uses to handle dynamic input support PHP style (dynamic language) and ASP.NET MVC binding style (static language which uses class)

<div class="name-index">
 <input name="name[1]" value="Foo">
 <input name="name[0]" value="Bar">
</div>
<div class="user-single">
 <input name="user.title" value="Mr.">
 <input name="user[name]" value="Foo Bar">
</div>
<div class="user-static">
 <input name="users[0].title" value="Mr.">
 <input name="users[0].name" value="John Do">
</div>
<div class="user-dynamic">
 <input name="users[0][title]" value="Ms.">
 <input name="users[0][name]" value="Jane Do">
</div>

converted into

{
 name = {
  "Bar",
  "Foo"
 },
 user = {
  title = "Mr.",
  name = "Foo Bar"
 },
 users = {
  {
   title = "Mr.",
   name = "John Do"
  },
  {
   title = "Ms.",
   name = "Jane Do"
  }
 }
}
