[ SOLVED ] Managing uploads for Meteor 1.3


#1

Hello there.

I’m not used to post on forums for help but I have to admit to be stuck on this and I need your help.

It’s for managing uploads in general in Meteor, not on AWS or similar platforms but old fashioned local uploads.

I’m actually not able to guess which package I should use for my projects. I mean an up to date package that will allow me to do classic upload tasks such as :

  • simple or multiple files uploads
  • preview thumbnail or file info before upload
  • progress bar if needed

Tutorials I found are for previous meteor versions, AWS or deprecated packages.

So, please, do you guys (and girls) have a package to recommend or a tutorial explaining the process ?

ps : why is Meteor missing this type of feature out of the box ? Maybe it’s not a priority but it’s a daily task in web site / apps.

A massive thank you for the upcoming answers

I think this package covers all what you are looking for. Not using it currently because I haven’t had time to migrate yet.

Oh thanks, you made my day.

I managed to make it work. It’s quite straightforward. I’m now trying to make a “before upload” step with thumbnails or filemane that you can change or delete before sending file to the server.
I hope it’ll suit my needs on my future projects. I have to spend more time on it.

Again THANK YOU.

Oh yeah I saw that one but it’s the deprecated cfs that “scared” me. It looks very convenient but I want to be sure that it’s maintained and won’t have compatibility problems later.
Thank you for your reply!
