Description:

A JavaScript file downloader library that provides a user-friendly file download experience on the web.

import Downloader from 'js-file-downloader';

3. Or load the js-file-downloader.min.js from the dist folder.

<script src="./dist/js-file-downloader.min.js"></script>

4. Create a new downloader instance the specify the path to the file to be downloaded.

new jsFileDownloader({ 
    url: '1.jpg' 
})

5. Do something when the download is ended.

new jsFileDownloader({ 
    url: '1.jpg' 
})
.then(function () {
  alert('File downloaded');
});

6. Do something when an error occurred.

new jsFileDownloader({ 
    url: '1.jpg' 
})
.catch(function (error) {
  // do something
});

7. Determine the maximum time to wait before stopping downloading. Default: ‘40000’.

new jsFileDownloader({ 
    url: '1.jpg',
    timeout: 50000
});

new jsFileDownloader({ 
    url: '1.jpg',
    process: process
});

function process (event) {
  if (!event.lengthComputable) return;
  var downloadingPercentage = Math.floor(event.loaded / event.total * 100);
  // what to do ...
};

14. Determine the method for the HTTP request.

new Downloader({ 
    url: '...',
    method: 'POST' // "GET", "POST", "PUT"
})

15. Customize the final file name with the nameCallback.

new Downloader({ 
    nameCallback: function(name) {
      return 'i-am-prefix-' + name;
    }
})

new Downloader({ 
    contentType: 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
})
