  1. Copy fileuploader.css, fileuploader.js into the app's static folder

In view:

<script> <script type="text/javascript" src="{{=URL(request.application,'static','fileuploader.js')}}"></script>

$(document).ready(function() { 
  var uploader = new qq.FileUploader({
        // pass the dom node (ex. $(selector)[0] for jQuery users)
        element: document.getElementById('file-uploader'),
        // path to server-side upload script
        action: '{{=URL("upload")}}',
        sizeLimit: 15000000,
        minSizeLimit: 0,         
        allowedExtensions: ['xls','jpg', 'jpeg', 'pdf', 'txt','doc','htm','html','xml','xmls', 'txt','ppt','png', 'gif'],
        // set to true to output server response to console
        debug: true,

        // events         
        // you can return false to abort submit
        onSubmit: function(id, fileName){},
        onProgress: function(id, fileName, loaded, total){},
        onComplete: function(id, fileName, responseJSON){},
        onCancel: function(id, fileName){},

        messages: {
            // error messages, see qq.FileUploaderBasic for content
            typeError: "{file} {{=T('has invalid extension.')}} {{=T('Only')}} {extensions} {{=T('are allowed.')}}",
            sizeError: "{file} {{=T('is too large, maximum file size is')}} {sizeLimit}.",
            minSizeError: "{file} {{=T('is too small, minimum file size is')}} {minSizeLimit}.",
            emptyError: "{file} {{=T('is empty, please select files again without it.')}}",
            onLeave: "{{=T('The files are being uploaded, if you leave now the upload will be cancelled.')}}"                         
        showMessage: function(message){ alert(message); }        

<div id="file-uploader">
<noscript><p>{{=T('Please enable JavaScript to use file uploader.')}}</p></noscript>


def upload():
            response.files.append(URL(r=request, c='static', f='fileuploader.css'))
            for r in request.vars:
             if r=="qqfile":
                # process the file here
                return response.json({'success':'true'})

    There is a mistake: 


    Where you see: 


    <script> <script type="text/javascript" src="{{=URL(request.application,'static','fileuploader.js')}}"></script>


    It should be 


    <script script type="text/javascript" src="{{=URL(request.application,'static','fileuploader.js')}}"></script>

    To see the default file-uploader CSS style: 1. Copy fileuploader.css into the app's static folder 2. Paste the following into the controller function: response.files.append(URL(r=request, c='static', f='fileuploader.css')) @jv the default css file can also be included using the view: {{response.files.append(URL(r=request, c='static', f='fileuploader.css'))}} {{extend 'layout.html'}} You should add this to your slice!
