Create a Drag & Drop File Uploader For Websites

Have you ever wondered how Udemy created their great file uploader for instructors? This course shows you how to build your own file uploader with the advanced feature of drag and drop uploading.

In this course you will learn how to set up your upload server, set the style of your upload page, display an upload progress bar, and write the JavaScript code to make it all come together.

Technical Description

Create a multiple file uploader using the HTML5 Drag & Drop API, with a multiple file selection if not supported. You'll create a reusable JavaScript AJAX uploader that works with any backend language that can upload files and output JSON, although we'll be using PHP here. Finally, we'll pull this all together by using the reusable uploader code to output which files have been uploaded and which ones failed.
