Teaser: Drag and Drop File Uploads with jQuery and ColdFusion
I've been a busy little bee as of late, but I wanted to let you know I've been working on something that I think you might enjoy. A way to incorporate file uploads using drag and drop!
jQuery handles the UI and ColdFusion handles back-end magic. Drawbacks of course being that this only works with HTML5 enabled browsers (i.e. all modern browsers, accept Internet Explorer). It also uses the form "PUT" method, so I'm not 100% sure which versions of ColdFusion it's compatible with (I'm using the latest Railo and I've tested it on CF9).
Anyway, I've slapped together a quick video of it in action, so check it. Hopefully I will be able to get around to releasing the code on how I'm doing this soon, but I need to wrap a few things up first. Enjoy!
