just because it’s not part of Yii and hasn’t been discussed yet. Are there plans for a kind of file storage component in Yii 2.0?
If a component, module or extension has to deal with files it may be useful if there would be a framework component helping them.
Basically this would be similar to a cache module, you may set or get files from the file storage component, but it may implement additional boundaries, if a module wants to store its files protected, so another module can’t access it.
Also the file storage could come with a convention where to store the files (e.g. protected/data, protected/var).
