Uploading files within a plugin
I am looking to include the ability to upload compressed files in a plugin I am working on. My question is what is the best way to go about this?
- Should I use Redmine methods if they exist?
- Should I use a Gem like Paperclip or Carrierwave?
- Should I use a basic upload structure native to Rails?
The uploaded files will be compressed files. I will start with adding support for zip files and then later for other compression formats. I need to let the user upload the files then I will extract the files and put them in a directory.
Any thoughts on this would be helpful.
