jQuery File Upload for Rails

jQuery File Upload is a cross-browser javascript library for asynchronus Flash-free file uploading by Sebastian Tschan (@blueimp). This gem packages it for the asset pipeline in Rails.

You should see the original project page for reference & documentation. There are no instructions here on how to use the library itself.


Add a line to your Gemfile.

gem 'jquery.fileupload-rails'

Now you can require the javascript library in application.js:

//= require jquery.fileupload

Included (no need to require):

  • jQuery Iframe Transport for IE support.
  • jQuery UI widget from jquery-ui-rails

Example Rails application can be found in "demo" directory.

Upgrading 0.1 to 1.0

You can remove all dependencies of the plugin from you manifest. Before:

//= require jquery.ui
//= require jquery.iframe-transport
//= require jquery.fileupload


//= require jquery.fileupload

If you downloaded jquery.ui assets into your project, delete them and use jquery-ui-rails gem instead.
