Vue Upload Widget

File upload component for Vue. Supports: image cropping, drag-and-drop, and more.

Installation

To install via NPM:

npm install @bytescale/upload-widget-vue

To install via a script tag:

<script src="https://js.bytescale.com/upload-widget-vue/v4"></script>

Usage

To add file uploads to your web app, use these code snippets:

Option 2: Create a Dropzone Area

1<template>
2 <UploadDropzone :options="options"
3 :on-complete="onFilesUploaded"
4 :on-update="onFileListChanged"
5 width="600px"
6 height="375px" />
7</template>
8
9<script lang="ts">
10 import { UploadDropzone } from "@bytescale/upload-widget-vue";
11 import type { UploadWidgetConfig, UploadWidgetResult, UploadWidgetOnUpdateEvent } from "@bytescale/upload-widget";
12
13 // -----
14 // Configuration:
15 // https://www.bytescale.com/docs/upload-widget#configuration
16 // -----
17 const options: UploadWidgetConfig = {
18 apiKey: "free", // Get API key: https://www.bytescale.com/get-started
19 maxFileCount: 10,
20 showFinishButton: true
21 };
22
23 export default {
24 name: "App",
25 components: {
26 UploadDropzone
27 },
28 data() {
29 return {
30 options
31 };
32 },
33 methods: {
34 onFileListChanged({ uploadedFiles, pendingFiles, failedFiles }: UploadWidgetOnUpdateEvent) {
35 const uploadedFileUrls = uploadedFiles.map(x => x.fileUrl).join("\n");
36 console.log(uploadedFileUrls);
37 },
38 onFilesUploaded(files: UploadWidgetResult[]) {
39 if (files.length === 0) {
40 alert("No files selected.");
41 } else {
42 alert(files.map(f => f.fileUrl).join("\n"));
43 }
44 }
45 }
46 };
47</script>

Special behavior for dropzones:

onComplete only fires when showFinishButton = true (i.e. when the user clicks "Finish").

onUpdate must be used when showFinishButton = false.

Default value: showFinishButton = false

Result

The onComplete callback receives the following:

[
{
"accountId": "YOUR_ACCOUNT_ID",
"filePath": "/uploads/image.jpg",
"fileUrl": "https://upcdn.io/A623uY2/raw/uploads/image.jpg",
"originalFile": {
"accountId": "YOUR_ACCOUNT_ID",
"etag": "33a64df551425fcc55e4d42a148795d9f25f89d4",
"filePath": "/uploads/image.jpg",
"fileUrl": "https://upcdn.io/A623uY2/raw/uploads/image.jpg",
"lastModified": 1615680311115,
"metadata": {
"myCustomField1": true,
"myCustomField2": {
"hello": "world"
},
"anotherCustomField": 42
},
"mime": "image/jpeg",
"originalFileName": "example.jpg",
"size": 43182,
"tags": [
"example_tag"
]
}
}
]

The onUpdate callback receives the following:

1{
2 "uploadedFiles": [],
3 "failedFiles": [],
4 "pendingFiles": [
5 {
6 "file": {
7 "name": "my-file.txt",
8 "type": "text/plain",
9 "size": 42
10 }
11 }
12 ]
13}

The uploadedFiles field uses the same structure as the onComplete param above.

The options object requires the following object (all fields optional, except for apiKey, which is required):

You can disable image, video, and PDF previews by setting preview: false

You can disable the image cropper by setting crop: false

Building URLs

After uploading a file, you should save its filePath to your DB instead of its fileUrl, and use the UrlBuilder to lazily create URLs:

  • filePath values are shorter.

  • filePath values allow you to change the domain in the future (e.g. if you move to a custom CNAME).

  • filePath values allow you to select different file transformations at runtime (e.g. /raw/, /image/, etc.).

Install the Bytescale JavaScript SDK to use the UrlBuilder:

npm install @bytescale/sdk

Raw Files

Using the UrlBuilder to get raw file URLs (i.e. URLs to original files):

// import * as Bytescale from "@bytescale/sdk";
// Returns: "https://upcdn.io/1234abc/raw/example.jpg"
Bytescale.UrlBuilder.url({
accountId: "1234abc",
filePath: "/example.jpg"
});

You can upload any file type to Bytescale. Use /raw/ when downloading files that don't need to be transformed.

Transformation Presets

Using the UrlBuilder to transform files using transformation presets:

// import * as Bytescale from "@bytescale/sdk";
// Returns: "https://upcdn.io/1234abc/thumbnail/example.jpg"
Bytescale.UrlBuilder.url({
accountId: "1234abc",
filePath: "/example.jpg",
options: {
transformation: "preset",
transformationPreset: "thumbnail"
}
});

Transformation presets are created in the Bytescale Dashboard.

Images

Using the UrlBuilder to transform images using the Image Processing API:

// import * as Bytescale from "@bytescale/sdk";
// Returns: "https://upcdn.io/1234abc/image/example.jpg?w=800&h=600"
Bytescale.UrlBuilder.url({
accountId: "1234abc",
filePath: "/example.jpg",
options: {
transformation: "image",
transformationParams: {
"w": 800,
"h": 600
}
}
});

See the Image Processing API for the full list of transformationParams when transformation: "image".

Videos

Using the UrlBuilder to transform videos using the Video Processing API:

// import * as Bytescale from "@bytescale/sdk";
// Returns: "https://upcdn.io/1234abc/video/example.mov?f=mp4-h264&h=1080"
Bytescale.UrlBuilder.url({
accountId: "1234abc",
filePath: "/example.mov",
options: {
transformation: "video",
transformationParams: {
"f": "mp4-h264",
"h": 1080
}
}
});

See the Video Processing API for the full list of transformationParams when transformation: "video".

Audio

Using the UrlBuilder to transform audio using the Audio Processing API:

// import * as Bytescale from "@bytescale/sdk";
// Returns: "https://upcdn.io/1234abc/audio/example.wav?f=aac&br=192"
Bytescale.UrlBuilder.url({
accountId: "1234abc",
filePath: "/example.wav",
options: {
transformation: "audio",
transformationParams: {
"f": "aac",
"br": 192
}
}
});

See the Audio Processing API for the full list of transformationParams when transformation: "audio".

Archives

Using the UrlBuilder to extract the file document.docx from the uploaded ZIP file example.zip:

// import * as Bytescale from "@bytescale/sdk";
// Returns: "https://upcdn.io/1234abc/archive/example.zip?m=extract&artifact=/document.docx"
Bytescale.UrlBuilder.url({
accountId: "1234abc",
filePath: "/example.zip",
options: {
transformation: "archive",
transformationParams: {
m: "extract"
},
artifact: "/document.docx"
}
});

See the Archive Processing API for the full list of transformationParams when transformation: "archive".

Authentication

The Bytescale Upload Widget requires a Bytescale API key, and optionally a JWT:

API keys

You must always pass an apiKey to the Upload Widget configuration object.

With API key auth, the requester has access to the resources configured in the API key's permissions.

  • Secret API keys: can perform all API operations (see the Bytescale JavaScript SDK).

  • Public API keys: can perform file uploads and file downloads only. File overwrites, file deletes, and all other destructive operations cannot be performed using public API keys.

You must always use public API keys (e.g. public_***) in your client-side code.

JWTs (Optional)

When using public API keys you can optionally pass a JWT to extend the requester's permissions beyond that of the API key. In addition, you can configure your API key to make it reject requests that aren't accompanied by a valid JWT. This prevents users from taking your API key and using it outside of your application.

JWTs are issued by your application and are verified by Bytescale using a public key certificate.

To use JWTs, please use the Bytescale JavaScript SDK AuthManager »
