Can you give an example of using the Proxima file API?

Hey guys,

Love the Proxima API! Its a huge time saver and extremely useful.

Im having a problem getting my head around how the Proxima file is used and after
seeing the other Proxima File (How to use it) topic I still couldn't wrap my head around it.

I know the proxima file is automatic in its support to other proxima modules, but how can I get the users songs and videos (files) from one jamroom website to put into another? I can GET ( the user data and then POST to the other datastore but am at a loss of how to include the associated files in the URLs and POST the file(s) to the new destination.

Greatly appreciate any help and insights!

It's pretty much "automatic" - in other words, when you POST to create a new item you just need to post the file as well - this is not done by a URL or anything like that - your client needs to be able to send the proper headers and info to "upload" the file just as a browser would. The Proxima Files module will then "see" the associated file and make it part of the data for the item.

Let me know if that helps.
