Batch Gridview data ajax send splitted in chunks displaying bootstrap Progress bar

Created 6 months ago by toaster, updated 5 months ago by toaster.

The scenario in which this wiki can be useful is when you have to send an (huge) array of model ids and perform a time consuming computation with it like linking every model to other models. The idea is to split the array into smaller arrays and perform sequential ajax requests, showing the calculation progress using a [Bootstrap Progress bar](https://www.yiiframework.com/extension/yiisoft/yii2-bo...

Upload files in Yii2 with MongoDb and GridFs

Created 5 years ago by edoardo849, updated 4 years ago by skworden.

Uploading files in a webapp can be extremely tricky and sometimes the quickest way to do it is to store the file directly in the webserver or into a DNS (like Amazon S3) and then to save the link and the metadata inside a table in the DB. The thing is that you'll have to deal with file permissions, server storage, file management and so on (which is perfectly fine, by the way).
