1 Aug It's possible. You can use the curl option CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION to specify a callback where you'll receive chunks of data so you can send them directly to the client as curl downloads the file. php $filename = " ext"; header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream');. The PHP/CURL binding supports the CURLOPT_READFUNCTION option, which allows you to pass data to send chunk-by-chunk using that callback. Pretty much exactly the same logic as is shown in this C example: Properties ¶. name. Name of the file to be uploaded. mime. MIME type of the file ( default is application/octet-stream). postname. The name of the file in the upload data (defaults to the name property).
GitHub is where people build software. More than 27 million people use GitHub to discover, fork, and contribute to over 80 million projects. 14 Feb Well, I haven't posted here in quite some time I'm not dead, and don't plan on completely ditching this blog, but well Anyway, onto the article. I had a PHP application where I wanted to upload part of a large file to some other server. The naive method may be to simply split the file and upload through. 31 Jul I was recently working on a project where I had to send and receive binary files to and from a REST API, so I decided to document some of the code I wrote. Keep in mind that I'm extracting all of these code snippets from a custom PHP class I wrote, so if you're working with an API, I'd encourage you to.
19 Aug To do this you must first create a new file pointer using fopen(). Next we pass this file pointer to cURL and perform the request. Finally, we close the file pointer. Listing 2 Using cURL to download straight to a file stream (listingphp). php set_time_limit(0); $url = '';. Uses PSR-7 interfaces for requests, responses, and streams. This allows you to utilize other PSR-7 compatible libraries with Guzzle. Abstracts away the underlying HTTP transport, allowing you to write environment and transport agnostic code; i.e., no hard dependency on cURL, PHP streams, sockets, or non- blocking event. First Published at: See also: This RFC discusses improvement for CURL file uploading option. If upstream cURL API permits, we could add in the future uploading files from string buffers, stream names, stream resources and such, which is now impossible with existing @- based API.
