FileAPI

A set of JavaScript tools for working with files.

Get started

Download the files from the dist directory, and then:

    <div>
        <!-- "js-fileapi-wrapper" -- required class -->
        <div class="js-fileapi-wrapper upload-btn">
            <div class="upload-btn__txt">Choose files</div>
            <input id="choose" name="files" type="file" multiple />
        </div>
        <div id="images"><!-- previews --></div>
    </div>

    <script>window.FileAPI = { staticPath: '/js/FileAPI/dist/' };</script>
    <script src="/js/FileAPI/dist/FileAPI.min.js"></script>
    <script>
        var choose = document.getElementById('choose');
        FileAPI.event.on(choose, 'change', function (evt){
            var files = FileAPI.getFiles(evt); // Retrieve file list

            FileAPI.filterFiles(files, function (file, info/**Object*/){
                if( /^image/.test(file.type) ){
                    return  info.width >= 320 && info.height >= 240;
                }
                return  false;
            }, function (files/**Array*/, rejected/**Array*/){
                if( files.length ){
                    // Make preview 100x100
                    FileAPI.each(files, function (file){
                        FileAPI.Image(file).preview(100).get(function (err, img){
                            images.appendChild(img);
                        });
                    });

                    // Uploading Files
                    FileAPI.upload({
                        url: './ctrl.php',
                        files: { images: files },
                        progress: function (evt){ /* ... */ },
                        complete: function (err, xhr){ /* ... */ }
                    });
                }
            });
        });
    </script>

Setup options

Edit the file crossdomain.xml and place it to the root of the domain to which files will be uploaded.

    <script>
        window.FileAPI = {
              debug: false   // debug mode, see Console
            , cors: false    // if used CORS, set `true`
            , media: false   // if used WebCam, set `true`
            , staticPath: '/js/FileAPI/dist/' // path to '*.swf'
            , postNameConcat: function (name, idx){
                // Default: object[foo]=1&object[bar][baz]=2
                // .NET: https://github.com/mailru/FileAPI/issues/121#issuecomment-24590395
                return  name + (idx != null ? '['+ idx +']' : '');
            }
        };
    </script>
    <script src="/js/FileAPI/dist/FileAPI.min.js"></script>

    <!-- OR -->

    <script>
        window.FileAPI = { /* options */ };
        require(['FileAPI'], function (FileAPI){
            // ...
        });
    </script>

    // Retrieve file list
    var files = FileAPI.getFiles(el);

    // or event
    var files = FileAPI.getFiles(evt);
});

getInfo(file:Object, callback:Function):void

Get info of file (see also: FileAPI.addInfoReader).

// Get info of image file (FileAPI.exif.js included)
FileAPI.getInfo(file, function (err/**String*/, info/**Object*/){
    if( !err ){
        console.log(info); // { width: 800, height: 600, exif: {..} }
    }
});

// Get info of mp3 file (FileAPI.id3.js included)
FileAPI.getInfo(file, function (err/**String*/, info/**Object*/){

  • callback — function: list — files that match the condition, other — all the rest.
// Get list of file
var files = FileAPI.getFiles(input);

// Filter the List
FileAPI.filterFiles(files, function (file/**Object*/, info/**Object*/){
    if( /^image/.test(file.type) && info ){
        return  info.width > 320 && info.height > 240;
    } else {
        return  file.size < 20 * FileAPI.MB;

Flash

Flash is very "buggy" thing :] The server response can not be empty. Therefore, in the event of a successful uploading http status should be only 200 OK.

Settings

Flash settings. It is advisable to place flash on the same server where the files will be uploaded.

<script>
    var FileAPI = {
        // @default: "./dist/"
        staticPath: '/js/',

         // @default: FileAPI.staticPath + "FileAPI.flash.swf"
        flashUrl: '/statics/FileAPI.flash.swf',

        // @default: FileAPI.staticPath + "FileAPI.flash.image.swf"
        flashImageUrl: '/statics/FileAPI.flash.image.swf'
    };
</script>
<script src="/js/FileAPI.min.js"></script>

crossdomain.xml

Necessarily make this file on the server. Do not forget to replace youdomain.com on the name of your domain.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd">
<cross-domain-policy>
    <site-control permitted-cross-domain-policies="all"/>
    <allow-access-from domain="youdomain.com" secure="false"/>
    <allow-access-from domain="*.youdomain.com" secure="false"/>
    <allow-http-request-headers-from domain="*" headers="*" secure="false"/>
</cross-domain-policy>

request

The following sample HTTP POST request is sent from Flash Player to a server-side script if no parameters are specified:

POST /server/ctrl.php HTTP/1.1
Accept: text/*
Content-Type: multipart/form-data;
boundary=----------Ij5ae0ae0KM7GI3KM7

Security

By default FileAPI.flash.swf allows access from any domain via Security.allowDomain("*"). This can lead to same origin bypass vulnerability if swf is loaded from the same domain as your critical data. To prevent this, allow only your domains here and rebuild flash.


Server settings

IFrame/JSONP

<script>
(function (ctx, jsonp){
    'use strict';
    var status = {{httpStatus}}, statusText = "{{httpStatusText}}", response = "{{responseBody}}";
    try {
        ctx[jsonp](status, statusText, response);
    } catch (e){
        var data = "{\"id\":\""+jsonp+"\",\"status\":"+status+",\"statusText\":\""+statusText+"\",\"response\":\""+response.replace(/\"/g, '\\\\\"')+"\"}";
        try {
            ctx.postMessage(data, document.referrer);
        } catch (e){}
    }
})(window.parent, '{{request_param_callback}}');
</script>

<!-- or -->

<?php
    include './FileAPI.class.php';

    if( strtoupper($_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD']) == 'POST' ){
        // Retrieve File List
        $files  = FileAPI::getFiles();

        // ... your logic

        // JSONP callback name
        $jsonp  = isset($_REQUEST['callback']) ? trim($_REQUEST['callback']) : null;

        // Server response: "HTTP/1.1 200 OK"
        FileAPI::makeResponse(array(
              'status' => FileAPI::OK
            , 'statusText' => 'OK'
            , 'body' => array('count' => sizeof($files))
        ), $jsonp);
        exit;
    }
?>

CORS

Enable CORS.

<?php
    // Permitted types of request
    header('Access-Control-Allow-Methods: POST, OPTIONS');

    // Describe custom headers
    header('Access-Control-Allow-Headers: Origin, X-Requested-With, Content-Range, Content-Disposition, Content-Type');

    // A comma-separated list of domains
    header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: ' . $_SERVER['HTTP_ORIGIN']);

    // Allow cookie
    header('Access-Control-Allow-Credentials: true');

    if( $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'OPTIONS' ){
        exit;
    }

    if( $_SERVER['REQUEST_METHOD'] == 'POST' ){
        // ...
    }
?>

Chunked file upload

Client and server communicate to each other using the following HTTP headers and status codes.
Client explicitly sets the following headers:

  • Content-Range: bytes <start-offset>-<end-offset>/<total>
  • Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=<file-name>

Any other headers are set by a target browser and are not used by client. Library does not provide any facilities to track a file uniqueness across requests, it's left on developer's consideration.
Response codes:

  • 200 - last chunk is uploaded
  • 201 - chunk is successfully saved
  • 416 - range is not acceptable error, recoverable
  • 500 - server error, recoverable

For recoverable errors server tries to resend chunk chunkUploadRetry times then fails.<br/ Response headers:

  • X-Last-Known-Byte: int, library tries to resend chunk from the given offset. Applicable to response codes 200 and 416

All the other codes - fatal error, user's involvement is recommended.
