Zend Framework 2 Integration

To integrate Filepicker with Zend Framework 2 follow these steps:

Copy the assets folder to your ZF2 public directory and the uploader folder into the root directory.

Edit your composer.json file and add the following line to the psr-4 autoload:

"Hazzard\\Filepicker\\": "uploader/src"

It should look like this.

Then run:

composer require hazzard/config
composer require intervention/image
composer require symfony/http-foundation ~2.7
composer dumpautoload

Create a FilepickerController controller and add:


namespace Application\Controller;

use Hazzard\Filepicker\Handler;
use Hazzard\Filepicker\Uploader;
use Intervention\Image\ImageManager;
use Hazzard\Config\Repository as Config;
use Symfony\Component\HttpFoundation\Request;

use Zend\Mvc\Controller\AbstractActionController;

class FilepickerController extends AbstractActionController
    public function indexAction()
        $basepath = $this->getServiceLocator()

        $handler = new Handler(
            new Uploader($config = new Config, new ImageManager)

        $config['debug'] = true;

        // Path to the files directory (public/files).
        $config['upload_dir'] = 'public/files';

        // Url to the files directory.
        $config['upload_url'] = $basepath('files');


        return $this->getResponse();

In your module.config.php file, add to the controllers > invokables array:

'Application\Controller\Filepicker' => Controller\FilepickerController::class,

And under the routes array add:

'filepicker' => array(
    'type' => 'Zend\Mvc\Router\Http\Literal',
    'options' => array(
        'route'   => '/filepicker',
        'defaults' => array(
            'controller' => 'Application\Controller\Filepicker',
            'action'     => 'index',

Notice: Make sure you use your proper namespace for the controller.

Then in your view make sure to set the url option to your controller route, like this:

url: '<?php echo $this->url("filepicker") ?>',

If you are using CSRF validation, make sure to set the token using the data option:

data: {
    csrf: '<?php echo $csrf->getValue(); ?>', // $csrf -> Zend\Form\Element\Csrf
