Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including jquery.dropzone with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

require("jquery/package.json"); // jquery is a peer dependency. var jqueryDropzone = require("jquery.dropzone")

jquery.dropzone v1.0.5

A simple jQuery plugin for creating styleable dropzones for files

jquery.dropzone

A simple jquery plugin for creating styleable dropzones for files

  • Call $('#your-element').dropzone() to initiate (On any element, event the body)
  • Adds drop-available class to the dropzone element when a file is being dragged to the window. This is useful if you want to style your element to show that it is possible to drop the file on it.
  • Adds drop-over class to the dropzone when the file is being dragged right over it.

Remember, you need to preventDefault() on the 'drop' event, or the browser will use the default action on the dropped file, which is to download it or redirect to the file.


It's possible to instruct it to add an extra element inside the dropzone when a file is being dragged to the window, which will also receive the drop-over class.
This is useful for creating a dropzone on body, and having a styled dropzone element float above everything else.

This is done by passing an append option:

$('body').dropzone({ append: '<div class="dropzone-inner">' })

Now just listen to 'drop' event and take the file:

$('body')
    .dropzone({
        // This is optional, to add an internal element that you can style
        append: '<div class="full-drop-zone"><div class="description-wrapper"><div class="description">Release the file here...</div></div></div>',
        
        // This is optional, to selectively allow dropping
        allowDrop: function (event) {
            return dataTransfer.items.length > 0 && dataTransfer.items[0].kind === 'file';
        }
    })
    .on('drop', function (event) {
        event.preventDefault();

        // Do something with the files
        console.log(event.originalEvent.dataTransfer.files);
    });
.full-drop-zone {
  display: block;
  position: absolute;
  left: 20px;
  top: 20px;
  right: 20px;
  bottom: 20px;
  border: 2px dashed rgba(0,0,0,.3);
  border-radius: 20px;
  text-align: center;
  z-index: 20;
  background: rgba(255,255,255,0.7);
  color: rgba(0,0,0,.3);
  font-size: 20px;

  &.drop-over {
    border-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
    color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
  }

  .description-wrapper {
    position: relative;
    width: 100%;
    height: 100%;
  }

  .description {
    position: absolute;
    left: 50%;
    top: 50%;
    max-width: 100%;
    max-height: 100%;
    text-align: center;
    -ms-transform: translateX(-50%) translateY(-50%);
    transform: translateX(-50%) translateY(-50%);
  }
}

Cleanup

$('#your-element').dropzone('destroy');

The plugin will be automatically cleaned up when the remove event is emitted (Either when jQuery.UI is present, or jquery.removeevent is present).
