Yet another file uploader for jQuery!

Posted in Uncategorized by dpillay on December 17, 2010

Trying to get hold of a good client side file uploader plugin for jQuery turned out to be harder than I thought. Most of the existing plugins use flash (swfobject) to handle the uploads and thats not really the technology I was interested in using.

Hence I’ve written a new plugin that achieves the functionality using pure javascript called “jquery-yafu” viz. Yet another file uploader for jQuery🙂

You can find the source @ https://github.com/dpillay/jquery-yafu. Its dual licensed with MIT & GPLv2 licenses so should be commercial usage friendly.

I also have provided a Java server side component that can handle the file upload just in case people need it. Please check out the “yafu-sample” application for usage & details. It uses spring 3 mvc + commons file upload for the implementation.

Enjoy!
