FilePond vs Filestack: What are the differences?

Developers describe FilePond as "A flexible and fun JavaScript file upload library". A JavaScript library that can upload anything you throw at it, optimizes images for faster uploads and offers a great, accessible, silky smooth user experience. On the other hand, Filestack is detailed as "Easy, Powerful File Uploads". Filepicker helps developers connect to their users' content. Connect, Store, and Process any file from anywhere on the Internet.

FilePond and Filestack can be primarily classified as "File Uploads" tools.

Some of the features offered by FilePond are:

  • Accepts directories, files, blobs, local URLs, remote URLs and Data URIs
  • Drop files, select on filesystem, copy and paste files, or add files using the API
  • Async uploading with AJAX, or encode files as base64 data and send along form post

On the other hand, Filestack provides the following key features:

  • Connect your app to everything from Dropbox to Gmail in just 2 lines of code and let Filepicker.io handle the mess of uploading files - we give you a clean, short URL that is easy to store and read from.
  • Your files are stored in your existing S3 bucket. We handle all the complicated javascript and backend APIs to give you a clean and elegant way of saving files directly to your S3 bucket.
  • To make it even easier to work with user content, we enable image post-processing. This way, regardless of what type of file a user uploads from the Cloud or their local device, you can be sure it's in exactly the right size. To convert an image, take the filepicker url and append /convert, along with query parameters specifying what you want to change.

FilePond is an open source tool with 7.06K GitHub stars and 347 GitHub forks. Here's a link to FilePond's open source repository on GitHub.
