The web is built on a foundation of different file types. Whether it’s photographs, video content like movies, your Word documents, text documents, or programming-oriented files, we constantly change and exchange files.
It’s one of the main reasons services like Dropbox exist, to help us manage and synchronize our files wherever we are. If you are a regular internet user, you will know the very importance of file sharing and how crucial it can be to have access to reliable file-sharing services to share our files in secure, convenient, and effective ways.
If you are a web developer, you might be drawn towards building your file-sharing website. Perhaps you are looking to complement an existing web design with a file-sharing functionality that lets your customers or visitors share their files.
There are many ways to look at it, but to even get that far, we need to find a reliable solution for uploading and managing files on behalf of ourselves and others. This is why we have gathered a list of the most prominent and the best jQuery file upload scripts that you will be able to use for uploading and optimizing your files.
Because there are so many choices, we wish to mention that no choice is the best one, but instead one should closely investigate the end goal for each requirement, so if you are looking to create a personal file uploading script for uploading your files, then choose a more minimal uploading script, but if your schedule is to create a multi-functional file management website, take a look at the scripts that provide more extended functionality, you are sure to find a little bit of everything in our list here.
Let’s look at the best jQuery file upload scripts for multiple files.
PekeUpload is a lightweight component solution for web designers. They can use it as a website widget for uploading files using a jQuery + HTML5 combination of features. Built with Bootstrap, PekeUpload is incredibly easy to style and offers many ways to extend itself. With PekeUpload you remain in control of your file uploads. You can set file size limits, and choose the file type that your component is going to accept. If traditional error notifications make you tired, rest assured that you can set your own custom error notifications. You can preview the visual content directly before and after uploading.
jQuery File Upload is the perfect illustration of how file uploading works within jQuery and how it can be used for simply uploading and saving files. This library offers a slightly more versatile range of features though.
