Cloudinary Image/File Uploader

Cloudinary provides a simple way for uploading files to Cloudinary, which in turn can be set up to sync with your Amazon S3 service. This is useful for uploading and actively manipulating images and files that you want accesible to the public. Cloudinary is built on Cloudinary (NPM) and Cloudinary (JS). Installing this package will make Cloudinary available server-side and $.cloudinary available client-side.

Installation

$ meteor add lepozepo:cloudinary

How to upload

Step 1

Configure your Cloudinary Credentials and Delete Authorization Rules. SERVER SIDE AND CLIENT SIDE.

#SERVER
Cloudinary.config
    cloud_name: 'cloud_name'
    api_key: '1237419'
    api_secret: 'asdf24adsfjk'

# Rules are all optional
Cloudinary.rules.delete = ->
    @userId is "my_user_id" # The rule must return true to pass validation, if you do not set a rule, the validation will always pass
    @public_id # The public_id that is being deleted

Cloudinary.rules.signature = -> # This one checks whether the user is allowed to upload or not
    @userId is "my_user_id" # The rule must return true to pass validation, if you do not set a rule, the validation will always pass

Cloudinary.rules.private_resource = ->
    @userId is "my_user_id" # The rule must return true to pass validation, if you do not set a rule, the validation will always pass

Cloudinary.rules.download_url = ->
    @userId is "my_user_id" # The rule must return true to pass validation, if you do not set a rule, the validation will always pass

#CLIENT
$.cloudinary.config
    cloud_name:"cloud_name"

Step 2

Wire up your input[type="file"]. CLIENT SIDE.

Template.yourtemplate.events
    "change input[type='file']": (e) ->
        files = e.currentTarget.files

        Cloudinary.upload files,
            folder:"secret" # optional parameters described in http://cloudinary.com/documentation/upload_images#remote_upload
            type:"private" # optional: makes the image accessible only via a signed url. The signed url is available publicly for 1 hour.
            (err,res) -> #optional callback, you can catch with the Cloudinary collection as well
                console.log "Upload Error: #{err}"
                console.log "Upload Result: #{res}"

How to read and manipulate

All of Cloudinary's manipulation options are available in the c.url helper. You can access an image by passing a cloudinary public_id:

<img src="{{c.url public_id}}">
<img src="{{c.private_url public_id}}">

You can manipulate an image by adding parameters to the helper

<img width="250" src="{{c.url public_id effect='blur:300' angle=10}}">

Obs: If you want to resize your image in a smaller size you will need to pass the crop parameter

<img src="{{c.url public_id width=250 height=250 crop="fill"}}">

For more information see the cloudinary's documentation: http://cloudinary.com/documentation/image_transformations#crop_modes

How to protect your images

You will need an Advanced Cloudinary account before you can make your images fully private. Once you have your account you can do one of 2 things:

  • Set up a custom CNAME and ask Cloudinary to whitelist your domains via email
  • Upload type:"authenticated" images and request them via cloudinary's authentication scheme (I'm working on simplifying this part)

Compatibility

You can use the collection-hooks package to hook up to the offline collection Cloudinary.collection.

If you are using the browser-policy package, don't forget to allow images from cloudinary to load on your webapp by using BrowserPolicy.content.allowImageOrigin("res.cloudinary.com")

Here are all the transformations you can apply: http://cloudinary.com/documentation/image_transformations#reference

Cordova Android Bug with Meteor 1.2+

Due to a bug in the Cordova Android version that is used with Meteor 1.2, you will need to add the following to your mobile-config.js or you will have problems with this package on Android devices:

App.accessRule("blob:*");

How to delete from Cloudinary

Just pass the public_id of the image or file through this function (security features pending). It will return an object with a list of the images deleted as a result.

Template.yourtemplate.events
    "click button.delete": ->
        Cloudinary.delete @response.public_id, (err,res) ->
            console.log "Upload Error: #{err}"
            console.log "Upload Result: #{res}"

How to generate a downloadable link

Meteor.call "c.get_download_url", public_id,(err,download_url) ->
    console.log "Upload Error: #{err}"
    console.log "#{download_url}"

API

Notes

A security filter is missing, I know how I want it to work I just haven't had the time to build it. Enjoy the new version!
