Tus.IO resumable file uploads with angular

Last week I had a special task. I had to implement file uploading. Well, you might say, what is so special about that? So, I has to be able to upload huge files (GBs) in reliable and background manner. I use angular.js for the client side so I searched for a solution that has no dependency (like JQuery).

So I need something that:

I found tus.io, a protocol that meet the first 2 requirements. There are already some implementation but no angular specific. That is why I wrote angular-tus-io. It uses angular $http service and HTML5 File API for chunk creation.

Node.js is on server so I firstly looked at brewtus. But I did not like structure of code so I have rewritten it as well. Now it can be used as express application. It has some other features. E.g. you can say what filename to store particular file under on server. Check it out on github.com/vencax/brewtus.

Netlify CMS ~ May 18 cms,github

I have discovered Netlify CMS, great CMS application for statically generated webs. It’s build with react and redux (pitty, I prefer MobX, but :), is modularized, already has build in support for github-pages based web and most important is fact that it can be compiled and the resulting files can put next to your pages and be served as another page of your web.

Samba with SQL backend ~ Feb 06 samba,sql

After long period I have finished another version of eduit project. It uses SQL database as user storage because I believe that LDAP is pain in .. Server uses libnssmysql for user SAM, but samba has its own user backend, FUUU!
