django how to handel big file (image) uploads > 400MB

Go To


i never did that before. i'm sure, that i need a progress bar to keep to user informed. are there some advises which way i should go? use a flash uploader (swfupload) or a "cooler" way with XMLHttpRequest.

thanks for an advise!

Usually your server (apache/lighttpd/nginx) handles the progress, ajax is just used for polling the server status and passing the %/i to the view.. example: - Hedde van der Heide 2012-04-04 07:43
