Description Patrick Mueller 2009-12-16 11:51:20 PST
The W3C has published a working draft of a "File API", available here: http://www.w3.org/TR/FileAPI/  (current draft link I'm looking at: http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-FileAPI-20091117/ ).  Time to start looking at a WebKit implementation!
Comment 1 Timothy Hatcher 2009-12-16 12:56:03 PST
WebKit already has File and FileList and XHR support for File and onprogress events.

Might not be the same as the spec now. But we still need FileReader and other things.

This would be very much appreciated for projects like SVG-edit.  Version 2.5 will allow users to open local files into the editor.  This already works in Firefox 3.6.

According to bug #38157 FileReader is already completely implemented.

But bug #39093 says that it is not bound to the API yet. Bug #39093 should block this one.

Is this bug still useful?  All dependent bugs have been closed.
Comment 6 Dieter Komendera 2022-02-11 08:19:33 PST
I think this can be closed, to my best knowledge, the File API is fully implemented.
