angular-file-model Code Climate

Simple Angular.js directive that allows input element's of type file to be handled in models inside a controller's scope.

Usage

Install with bower:

bower install angular-file-model --save

Add to your HTML files:

<script src='/bower_components/angular-file-model/angular-file-model.js'></script>

Now, inject to your application:

angular.module('myApp', ['file-model']);

Ready to use in your controllers!:

file.html:

<input type='file' file-model='fileModel'>
<button type='button' ng-click='upload()'>Upload</button>

controller.js:

var DemoCtrl = [
  '$scope', 
  function ($scope) {
    $scope.upload = function () {
      $scope.fileModel // This is where the file is linked to.
    };
  }
]

Known Issues

  • Using a the modal controller from angular-ui I can't update the variable assigned to file-model: This is not an issue directly with angular-file-model. It's created because the modal controller uses transclusion. Actually, you can't update any other values directly. My workaround for this has been passing an empty object to the controller's scope and putting the file-model (just like other data from fields from the modal) into that object, so what I pass to file-model is something like: 'data.file' instead and it works. (data being already initialized as {} at least in the controller)
