Uploading files

1. Use default plupload html

Use the examples found on the plupload site. The Getting Started page is good place to start.

2. Plupload builder

make($id, $url)

Create new uploader.

  • $id: the unique identification for the uploader.
  • $url: the upload url end point.
{!! Plupload::make('my_uploader_id', route(''))->render() !!}

or use the helper

{!! plupload()->make('my_uploader_id', route('')) !!}
// or even shorter
{!! plupload('my_uploader_id', route('')) !!}

render($view = 'plupload::uploader', array $data = [])

Renders the uploader. You can customize this by passing a view name and it's data. From version 2.0, you can omit the render method in the builder if you don't want to set the view or extra data.

3. Use package js file to initialize Plupload (Optional)

If you do not want to write your own js to initialize Plupload, you can use the upload.js file that included with the package in resources/views/vendor/plupload/assets/js. Make sure that you already have jQuery loaded on your page.

Initialize Plupload

$(function () {
    createUploader('my_uploader_id'); // The Id that you used to create with the builder

These following methods are useable with the upload.js file.

Set Uploader options

setOptions(array $options)

Set uploader options. Please visit to see all the options. You can set the default global options in config/plupload.php

{!! plupload('my_uploader_id', route(''))
        'filters' => [
            'max_file_size' => '2mb',
            'mime_types' => [
                ['title' => 'Image files', 'extensions' => 'jpg,gif,png'],
    ]) !!}

Automatically start upload when files added

Use setAutoStart() in your builder before calling render() function.


  • $bool: true or false
{!! plupload('my_uploader_id', route(''))->setAutoStart(true) !!}

Receiving files

file($name, $handler)

  • $name: the input name.
  • $handler: callback handler.

Use this in your route or your controller. Feel free to modify to suit your needs.

return Plupload::file('file', function($file) {
    // Store the uploaded file using storage disk
    $path = Storage::disk('local')->putFile('photos', $file);

    // Save the record to the db
    $photo = App\Photo::create([
        'name' => $file->getClientOriginalName(),
        'type' => 'image',
        // ...

    // This will be included in JSON response result
    return [
        'success' => true,
        'message' => 'Upload successful.',
        'id' => $photo->id,
        // 'url' => $photo->getImageUrl($filename, 'medium'),
        // 'deleteUrl' => route('photos.destroy', $photo)
        // ...

Helper is also available

return plupload()->file('file', function($file) {


If you are using the package upload.js file. The url and deleteUrl in the JSON payload will be used to generate preview and delete link while the id will be appended to the uploader as a hidden field with the following format:

<input type="hidden" name="{uploaderId}_files[]" value="{id}" />.

Please note that the deleteUrl uses DELETE method.
