Rails Integration for Plupload

This gem integrates Plupload with Rails. It's been tested with Rails 3.1, 3.2 and 4.0.


Just add it got your Gemfile:

gem 'plupload-rails'

Quick Start

Add to your application.js:

//= require moxie
//= require

// optional, only needed if you'd like to use plupload localized
//= require plupload/i18n/de

// optional, but recommended. it sets generic settings like flash url, etc.
//= require plupload.settings

// optional, only if you want to use the jquery integration
//= require jquery.plupload.queue

Add to your application stylesheet:

//= require jquery.plupload.queue

For Rails 4, add to config/initializors/assets.rb:

Rails.application.config.assets.precompile += %w( Moxie.swf Moxie.xap )

Simple example Haml for your views:

      runtimes: 'gears,flash,silverlight,browserplus,html5',
      url: '#{images_path}',
      multipart_params: {
        '#{request_forgery_protection_token}': '#{form_authenticity_token}',
        '#{Rails.application.config.session_options[:key]}': '#{request.session_options[:id]}'

And the same in ERB:

      runtimes: 'html5,flash,silverlight',
      url: '<%= sink_hole_path %>',
      multipart_params: {
        '<%= request_forgery_protection_token %>': '<%= form_authenticity_token %>',
        '<%= Rails.application.config.session_options[:key] %>': '<%= request.session_options[:id] %>'


When new versions of Plupload are released, simply update the gem to the latest version. When you notice that there's no gem for the latest plupload, please contact me (or even better, create an issue/ pull request).
