Ezdz [izy-dizy]

Build Status

Ezdz is a jQuery plugin to turn any standard input type file into a nice drag & drop zone with validators and previews.

Ezdz uses HTML5 File, Drag and Drop API, so it works properly on modern browsers only. I've tested it on last version of Chrome, Firefox and Safari on MacOSX and IOS7 safari mobile only. Feedbacks are welcomed.

Demo

Ezdz is in an early stage of development. Some demos are coming... Meanwhile please check a quick demo on Codepen. Here is a screenshot — Hey! Don't drag/drop files below, it's just a screenshot!

Getting Started

Include jQuery.

<script src="jquery.min.js"></script>

Include Ezdz styles.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="ezdz/dist/jquery.ezdz.min.css">

Include Ezdz script.

<script src="ezdz/dist/jquery.ezdz.min.js"></script>

And apply Ezdz to your inputs type file.

$('input[type="file"]').ezdz();

Settings

className

Add a custom class to the container. By default none.

text

Set the dropzone text. By default "drop a file".

previewImage

Set if a image preview is displayed when an image is dropped. By default "true".

value

Set a link to a previously uploaded file. By default none. This value can also be set in the element.

<input type="file" name="file" data-value="img/previously-uploaded-logo.png" />

classes

Ezdz classes. By default they are:

{ classes: {
        main:   'ezdz-dropzone',
        enter:  'ezdz-enter',
        reject: 'ezdz-reject',
        accept: 'ezdz-accept',
        focus:  'ezdz-focus'
    }
}

validators

Ezdz allowed validators. By default they are:

{ validators: {
        maxSize:   null,
        width:     null,
        maxWidth:  null,
        minWidth:  null,
        height:    null,
        maxHeight: null,
        minHeight: null
    }
}

Self-explanatory I guess.

$('[type="file"]').ezdz({
    validators: {
        maxWidth: 600,
        maxHeight: 400,
        maxSize: 1000000
    }
});

mime-types

Allowed mime-types are defined in the input tag with a standard acceptattribute.

<input type="file" name="logo" accept="image/png, image/jpeg" />

Callbacks

init

Called when the dropzone is built.

enter

Called when the dropzone is entered by the mouse.

leave

Called when the dropzone is leaved by the mouse.

accept

Called when a dropped/added file is added and accepted by validators.

{   accept: function(file) {
        alert('The file "' + file.name + '" is ok.');
    }
}

reject

Called when a dropped/added file is rejected by validators.

{   reject: function(file, errors) {
        if (errors.maxWidth || errors.maxHeight) {
            alert('The file "' + file.name + '" is too big.');
        }
    }
}

format

Called before displaying the filename in the preview.

{   format: function(filename) {
        return filename.uppercase();
    }
}

Default settings

Settings can be set for all instances.

$.ezdz.default = {
    validators: {
        maxWidth: 600,
        maxHeight: 400,
        maxSize: 1000000
    }
}

$('[type="file"]').ezdz('preview', null);

As a getter:

var options = $('[type="file"]').ezdz('options');

    validators: {
        maxSize: 10000
    }
});

$('[type="file"]').ezdz('destroy');
