FilePond in Laravel: File Upload Guide

For file uploads, there's a very popular JavaScript library called FilePond. How to use it in Laravel? We'll talk about using it in create/edit forms, previewing the images, and then will try to use tools like Spatie Media Library, Amazon S3 and Livewire. So, let's get into it!

Step-by-step, we will cover these topics:

  • File Upload Form without FilePond
  • Visual Change: Replace File Input with FilePond
  • Process Upload with FilePond
  • FilePond in Edit Form
  • Uploading Multiple Files
  • Using Spatie Media Library
  • Uploading to Amazon S3
  • Upload Directly to S3 With Livewire

Step 1. File Upload Form Without FilePond

Migration structure:


return new class extends Migration {
    public function up()
        Schema::create('tasks', function (Blueprint $table) {

Controller method for this form will be as simple as this:


class TasksController extends Controller
    public function create()
        return view('tasks.create');

    public function store(TaskRequest $request)

        return redirect()->route('tasks.index');

For the front-end part, we will use Laravel Breeze as a starter kit...
