Filepond options

Filepond options described at the documentation can be set by setting instanceOptions or settingsOptions.

This is the preferred way:

    <?= FilepondWidget::widget([
            'name' => 'file',
            'instanceOptions' => [
                'required' => true,
                'maxFiles' => 10,
                ... other options ...
            ]
         ]);
    ?>

Filepond plugins

If you want to add some of filepond plugins to the widget, set the allow plugin option to true. For example, to add file type validation plugin set allowFileSizeValidation:

    <?= FilepondWidget::widget([
            'name' => 'file',
            'instanceOptions' => [
                'allowFileSizeValidation' => true,
                'maxFileSize' => '10M',
                ... other options ...
            ]
         ]);
    ?>

Validation

Only client-side validation is available. This kind of validation is the part of filepond library. You can add file size and file type validation. Example of file type validation:

    <?= FilepondWidget::widget([
            'name' => 'file',
            'instanceOptions' => [
                'allowFileTypeValidation' => true,
                'acceptedFileTypes' => ['image/*']
            ]
                ... other options ...
            ]
         ]);
    ?>

Localization

Original library isn't localized and has only english labels. This widget has russian translations too. To apply the localization you have to set language option in Yii settings or directly in the widget:

    <?= FilepondWidget::widget([
            'name' => 'file',
            'language' => 'ru-RU'
         ]);
    ?>
