File UploadsΒΆ

There are lots of occasions where a web service will want to allow people to upload and manage files/images.

Mewlo includes robust support for such things:

  • Nice organization of uploaded files (don’t just dump a million files in one directory).
  • Functions for tracking stats on files, alerting on suspicious behavior.
  • Antivirus scanning.
  • Protection of files from public linking or non-user downloads, if desired; or placement in public folders to reduce noon-static resource serving cpu usage.
  • Cleanup and maintenance and error checking administration backend.
  • Support for automatic thumbnailing, caching, web grabbing from external sites.
