I have local instance of galaxy and wanted to modify “upload file” so that I will be able to upload large files ( > 2GB).

The reason I am trying to do this in browser is that extra tools for FTP do not really work in my environment because of all the constraints and firewalls.

I came up with jQuery file upload tool (http://blueimp.github.com/jQuery-File-Upload/), and the tool seems fine if it is possible me to integrate into my galaxy instance.


My questions are:

-Is it too cumbersome to achieve this goal with external tools?

-how deep should I hit the galaxy (at the code level) to integrate this jquery tool?

-Are there any alternatives to upload large files in browser without FTP?
