EPiFastUpload renamed FastUpload. Now available on Nuget

Due to a stricter naming policy for the EPiServer Nuget feed the module EPiFastUpload has been renamed FastUpload.

 

New naming policy

I was unaware of this policy when I created the module, and renaming everything took me a good two hours (including changing namespace, filenames, subversion, wiki, etc.). For other devs wanting to get into the EPiServer Nuget feed: you can’t have “epi” or “episerver” as part of the name. Not even if it is “MakingWaves.EPiFastUpload”. So now someone at EPiServer owes me a beer (you know who you are) Winking smile

 

Although a bit annoyed at the time, I fully understand their reasons. As was revealed in the Falcon Seminar the next version of EPiServer will have an “add on” store (Wordfeud in edit mode anyone?) and it makes sense to let the editors know what “add-ons” are made by EPiServer and what comes from third parties.

 

FastUpload finally on Nuget!

So now at last you can add multi file upload goodness to your EPiServer site using Nuget! It is also available as .epimodule file on EPiCode

We use this on our demo sites in the US and it works great. Thanks for an awesome plugin

We are very happy that you use it on your demo sites. Pair it with EPiImage and you got a killer demo :-)

Thanks for sharing all the details Alexander. As you've written we hope these new rules will make the life easier for both our customers and partners, even though it may require a few beers :)

We will outline our thinking and rules more clearly in the near future.

And yes, we all love both FastUpload for EPiServer as well as Image for EPiServer :)

Hmm, how will this affect any modules created by Epinova? :-)

Guess you have to change name to just Nova.

No problem. We'll switch "Epi" with "Taki" - new name will be Takin' ova. Watch out!

There seems to be a problem trying to upload to folders with special characters in the name (åäö etc). Seems like the path to the folder in the query is not encoded properly, hence can not be resolved when trying to upload :)

Other than that, great stuff!!

This seems great. Now I wonder about one thing. Will this just work inside episerver (that is for the editor/admin logged in to episerver)? My customer wants an upload of files, made available to the endusers, so that they can upload documents as they fills in a form. Is this possible by using fastupload?
