jQuery File Download Plugin for Ajax

jquery-downloadjQuery File Download is a cross server platform compatible jQuery plugin that allows for an Ajax-like file download experience that isn’t normally possible using the web.

– Brings control back to the developer by exposing a “successCallback” and “failCallback” that allows the developer to control the user experience in either situation.

– In conjunction with jQuery UI a developer can easily show a modal telling the user that a file download is occurring, disband the modal after the download starts or even inform the user in a friendly manner that an error has occurred. See the Demo for an example of this.

– File downloads don’t occur in the current window’s location bar. This means if a failure or something unexpected happens the user doesn’t leave the current page they are on or even have to see an ugly error message. This is critical for a good user experience especially on a highly Ajax application.
