? How does media-upload works?

media-upload contains two components <upload-media /> for the create form and <update-media /> for the update form!

<upload-media /> component

  1. media-upload uploads the image image.jpg as multipart/form-data using a POST request.

  2. server temporary saves the image with a unique name 123_image.jpg in a /tmp/uploads file.

  3. server returns the unique name 123_image.jpg in a request response.

  4. media-upload stores the unique name 123_image.jpg in a hidden input field with name="media[]".

  5. user submits the media-upload parent form containing the hidden inputs fields the unique images names.

  6. server uses the unique images names to move 123_image.jpg from the /tmp/uploads file to its final location.

<update-media /> component

  • Almost the same concept as <upload-media /> with some slight changes.

? Inputs

<upload-media /> component:

Basically after the image get uploaded the server return the unique image name and media-upload stores it in a hidden input field <input name="media[]">

<update-media /> component:

  • After the server returns the images names, media-upload lists them, and in case the user added an new image media-upload uploads the image image.jpg as multipart/form-data using a POST request and stores the added media unique name in an input <input name="added_media[]">

  • In case the user deleted an image 123_image.jpg media-upload stores it’s name in an input field <input name="deleted_media">

  • I case media-upload has at least one image or more listed you will notice that it has also an input field <input name="media" value="1">, this input is a way to validate the media as required, so if you want make media required in your form, you will only need to add on your backend validation <input name="media" value="1"> as required $request->media => 'required'
