Plug.Upload

A server (a GenServer specifically) that manages uploaded files.

Uploaded files are stored in a temporary directory and removed from that directory after the process that requested the file dies.

During the request, files are represented with a Plug.Upload struct that contains three fields:

  • :path - the path to the uploaded file on the filesystem
  • :content_type - the content type of the uploaded file
  • :filename - the filename of the uploaded file given in the request

Note: as mentioned in the documentation for Plug.Parsers, the :plug application has to be started in order to upload files and use the Plug.Upload module.
