Uploadify plugin for Ruby on Rails asset pipeline.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'uploadify-rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install uploadify-rails


Add to your JavaScript pipeline:

//= require uploadify

Add to you CSS pipeline:

 *= require uploadify

You can configure options in an initializer. For example:

Uploadify::Rails.configure do |config|
  config.uploader        = 'uploads/create'
  config.buttonText      = lambda { I18n.t('uploader.upload_file') }
  config.queueID         = 'uploadify_queue_div'
  config.onUploadSuccess = true

When you define any callbacks as true, you should define a function 'window.UploadifyRails.#{callback}' in your javascript asset files with the appropriate arguments. For convenience, you can run rake uploadify_rails:coffee to generate a coffeescript file with those functions already outlined. You can delete or leave as-is any functions in that file whose configuration values are not set to true.

For convenient access to your configuration, add to you ApplicationHelper:

include UploadifyRailsHelper

You can then access the uploadifier options using uploadify_rails_options in a view. For example:

<script type='text/javascript'>
  $(document).ready(function() {
    $('input#uploadify').uploadify(<%= uploadify_rails_options %>);

Using flash_cookie_session

If uploadify will be sending data back to your Rails application, just put 'gem "flash_cookie_session"' in your Gemfile, BEFORE 'gem "uploadify-rails"'.

(If you are designing a plugin, remember to put 'require "flash_cookie_session"' at the top of your engine file. Make sure it's included before 'require "uploadify-rails"'.)

In most cases, 'flash_cookie_session' should be in your Gemfile. However, if uploadify is configured to send data to a different web application, such as, for instance, if you're uploading files directly to Amazon S3, omit flash_cookie_session. (If you require it for other parts of your application, list it in the Gemfile AFTER "uploadify-rails".)
