How to use Uppy with ActiveStorage

Episode 329 · January 27, 2020

Learn how to implement Uppy as a frontend for uploading files via drag and drop, paste, URL, Google Drive, Dropbox, webcam and more to Active Storage in Rails

ActiveStorage File Uploading Javascript is a fantastic file uploading frontend Javascript library. It provides a drag and drop interface along with copy & paste and integrations with services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Instagram, and more. You can upload files from any of those locations and Uppy will retrieve and upload the file for you wherever it needs to go.

Integrating Uppy with ActiveStorage can be a bit of a pain however. You actually need a plugin to make it work with ActiveStorage's direct upload URL so it knows where to send the files.
