Node.js Question

Modify image obtained from loopback-component-storage

I am using

loopback
for storing Image to the
server
.

I want to modify the file name of the file before getting saved to the server.

Also I want to convert it to another thumbnail form before getting saved.

Here is how I am doing.


At client side


Upload.upload(
{
url: '/api/containers/container_name/upload',
file: file,
fileName: "demoImage.jpg",
//Additional data with file
params:{
orderId: 1,
customerId: 1
}
});



At Server Side I am receiving the query "params" but not getting the "File Name"


My Storage model name is
container


Container.beforeRemote('upload', function(ctx, modelInstance, next) {

//OUPTUTS: {orderId:1, customerId:1]}
console.log(ctx.req.query);

//Now I want to change the File Name of the file.
//But not getting how to do that

next();
})


How to change the File name of the File getting saved at the server?

Answer

I figured it out.

We have to define a custom function getFileName in boot/configure-storage.js.

Suppose my datasource for loopback-component-storage is presImage.

server/boot/configure-storage.js

module.exports = function(app) {
    //Function for checking the file type..
    app.dataSources.presImage.connector.getFilename = function(file, req, res) {

        //First checking the file type..
        var pattern = /^image\/.+$/;
        var value = pattern.test(file.type);
        if(value ){
            var fileExtension = file.name.split('.').pop();
            var container = file.container;
            var time = new Date().getTime();
            var query = req.query;
            var customerId = query.customerId;
            var orderId    = query.orderId;

            //Now preparing the file name..
            //customerId_time_orderId.extension
            var NewFileName = '' + customerId + '_' + time + '_' + orderId + '.' + fileExtension; 

            //And the file name will be saved as defined..
            return NewFileName;
        }
        else{
            throw "FileTypeError: Only File of Image type is accepted.";
        }
    };
}

common/models/container.js

Now suppose my container model is container.

module.exports = function(Container) {
    Container.afterRemote('upload', function(ctx,  modelInstance, next) {
      var files = ctx.result.result.files.file;

      for(var i=0; i<files.length; i++){
        var ModifiedfileName = files[i].name;
        console.log(ModifiedfileName) //outputs the modified file name.
      } //for loop
      next();
    }); //afterRemote..
};

Now for converting it images to Thumbnail size

Download the quickthumb

Here is how to use it with loopback.

This code is copied directly from Loopback thumbnail view

common/models/container.js

module.exports = function(Container) {

    var qt = require('quickthumb');

    Container.afterRemote('upload', function(ctx, res, next) {

        var file = res.result.files.file[0];
        var file_path = "./server/storage/" + file.container + "/" + file.name;
        var file_thumb_path = "./server/storage/" + file.container + "/thumb/" + file.name;

        qt.convert({
            src: file_path,
            dst: file_thumb_path,
            width: 100
        }, function (err, path) {

        });

        next();
    });

};
