  • rjcalifornia added a new discussion topic File Plugin | Questions about performance in the group Performance and Scalability
    Hi there! Long time no see!   Anyways, I'm about to use elgg for a big project, which will require big uploads through the file plugin. Right now I'm using an Ubuntu server with PHP 7.x that I set up with Vagrant.  I...
    • I don't know what Elgg does exactly after the upload in that pause. To be honest I never tried uploading any file larger than maybe 100M. My guess is that Elgg might write the uploaded file to the data directory during the pause (while the upload was done only into memory in the first place).

      Dealing with very large files is probably a matter of the server hardware and its configuration. Elgg seems not to use any sophisticated upload code but relies on PHP core code, i.e. what PHP can (and is not limited for example by PHP variable values and RAM of the server and lastly maybe by filesystem limits on the server) would then also work with Elgg.

      If this functionality is reliable and comfortable is probably another matter (e.g. it might be much better if interrupted uploads could be resumed especially for large files and probably give better feedback like a progress bar during upload and a definite message once the upload is complete for the user to know he can leave the upload page or would have to keep it open for some reason).

      I guess there are optimizations and other improvements possible. For example the Tidypics plugin uses the plupload uploader to provide an html5 compatible uploader. Plupload would support uploads in chunks, gives some feedback with regards to progress etc. It would also allow for multiple uploads at once. I guess the overall performance would not necessarily be any better automatically. And automatically it wouldn't work anyway as the Files plugin would have to be modified to make use of Plupload and probably also to add other improvements (and if only for larger files).

      Right now, I'm looking to a Drop Zone plugin integration, which might solve some problems.

      I was thinking the same thing. Due to be a server with limited resources, that might be the cause of that pause I mentioned.

    Need some small but very specific customization for the custom index plugin. The one that comes with elgg.    As soon as possible.

    I was looking at the elgg Roadmap, and I don't see major changes. I was wondering if at some point elgg is gona use Twig as a template engine.  
    • I doubt that we will be able to replace all views with Twig, but I do like the notion.

    • That's what I thought. 

      Anyways, I am asking this because I've been doing some projects with Twig. About a week ago I wanted to use elgg for another project (since it has everything I needed out of the box + plugins). However, once I was going to work with elgg, I saw a mess and instead of saving time, I was going to need more to use it as I was requested. 

      I decided to go back and use this framework that uses Twig. I did everything I needed to do in less than a week. I'm not complaining, It just seems elgg is staying behind. Even OpenCart uses Twig now

    • I don't think there is any problem to using twig in parallel. Views system is flexible enough to accommodate templates, and hooks can be used to prepare the values, build cache etc.
