Has anyone seen a drag&drop plugin for files into the media library for WP? Would be very interested with such a plugin.

Edit - Seems like Google will sponsor this project on GSoC 2011

  • Can you describe what exactly you're looking for in a bit more detail? I'm not sure what HTML5 has to do with a drag-drop plug-in ... or whether you want this for file uploads or management of files already on the site ... – EAMann Oct 20 '10 at 14:16

    It's the new File API and the Drag & Drop API. Here is a demo thebuzzmedia.com/html5-drag-and-drop-and-file-api-tutorial Also, it's now supported in Gmail for file attachments with modern browsers which support html5 – grm Oct 20 '10 at 20:21
  • I've seen drag and drop as well as select multiple files via a button in action now. It's something very useful for browsers on systems that do not have flash installed. It needs that you have javascript enabled though. It's just something nice to have, as it prevents the browser from loading a plugin if this replaces the swf uploader. – hakre Nov 14 '10 at 23:33
