I'm working on the back end right now for uploading files. From the front end, I'd like to be able to drag in a file, multiple files, and directories. Then i'd like to see percentage progress bars for each file (perhaps at the bottom of file manager).
1) How would this be possible? Do i use the built in uploader in file manager or create one using uploader?
2) Where does the progress data come from? Is there a stream on the client side that we can see how much of it has been read? or does the data need to come from the server side that's processing?
