Handy File Upload Component For React – React FilePond

This is a React wrapper around the FilePond library, which helps you create elegant, flexible, customizable, drag-and-drop file input in React applications.

Installation:

# NPM
$ npm i react-filepond filepond

How to use it:

1. Use hooks.

import React, { useState } from 'react'
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
// Import React FilePond
import { FilePond, File, registerPlugin } from 'react-filepond'
// Import FilePond styles
import 'filepond/dist/filepond.min.css'
// Import the Image EXIF Orientation and Image Preview plugins
// Note: These need to be installed separately
// `npm i filepond-plugin-image-preview filepond-plugin-image-exif-orientation --save`
import FilePondPluginImageExifOrientation from 'filepond-plugin-image-exif-orientation'
import FilePondPluginImagePreview from 'filepond-plugin-image-preview'
import 'filepond-plugin-image-preview/dist/filepond-plugin-image-preview.css'
// Register the plugins
registerPlugin(FilePondPluginImageExifOrientation, FilePondPluginImagePreview)
// Our app
function App() {
  const [files, setFiles] = useState([])
  return (
    <div className="App">
      <FilePond
        files={files}
        onupdatefiles={setFiles}
        allowMultiple={true}
        maxFiles={3}
        server="/api"
        name="files" {/* sets the file input name, it's filepond by default */}
        labelIdle='Drag & Drop your files or <span class="filepond--label-action">Browse</span>'
      />
    </div>
  )
}

2. Use as a component.

import React, { useState } from 'react'
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom'
// Import React FilePond
import { FilePond, registerPlugin } from "react-filepond";
// Import FilePond styles
import "filepond/dist/filepond.min.css";
// Import the Image EXIF Orientation and Image Preview plugins
// Note: These need to be installed separately
import FilePondPluginImageExifOrientation from "filepond-plugin-image-exif-orientation";
import FilePondPluginImagePreview from "filepond-plugin-image-preview";
import "filepond-plugin-image-preview/dist/filepond-plugin-image-preview.css";
// Register the plugins
registerPlugin(FilePondPluginImageExifOrientation, FilePondPluginImagePreview);
// Our app
class App extends Component {
  constructor(props) {
    super(props);
    this.state = {
      // Set initial files, type 'local' means this is a file
      // that has already been uploaded to the server (see docs)
      files: [
        {
          source: "index.html",
          options: {
            type: "local"
          }
        }
      ]
    };
  }
  handleInit() {
    console.log("FilePond instance has initialised", this.pond);
  }
  render() {
    return (
      <div className="App">
        <FilePond
          ref={ref => (this.pond = ref)}
          files={this.state.files}
          allowMultiple={true}
          allowReorder={true}
          maxFiles={3}
          server="/api"
          name="files" {/* sets the file input name, it's filepond by default */}
          oninit={() => this.handleInit()}
          onupdatefiles={fileItems => {
            // Set currently active file objects to this.state
            this.setState({
              files: fileItems.map(fileItem => fileItem.file)
            });
          }}
        />
      </div>
    );
  }
}
