The fastest way to add file uploads to your Heroku Application Starting at $35/mo.
It hooks into form elements with a
class = simple-file-upload and replaces them with a dropzone uploader. When a file is dropped, the uploader handles all of the direct uploading to the cloud and returns a URL to access the file.
My problems with Heroku’s ephemeral file system were solved when I found Simple File Upload! After integrating the add-on for Heroku, deploying my app with a fully functional file uploader was incredibly straightforward and easy.
It’s the best Heroku addon for files!
Provision Simple File Upload onto your application.
From your Heroku dashboard, click on Simple File Upload to access your dashboard.
Add a hidden input with class of “simple-file-upload” anywhere you want the widget to appear.
Users can upload files directly to cloud storage.
Simple File Upload provides a clean UI that will seamlessly integrate with your existing application. Errors or uploading issues are gracefully handled for you.
Uploaded files are delivered via a global Content Delivery Network which improves page speed and reduces load.
This is specifically designed to work around Heroku application limits. Due to Heroku’s ephemeral file system and network timeout limits, it is imperative that assets are stored in the cloud.
Simple File Upload uses direct uploads. In a direct upload, a file is uploaded to cloud storage from a user’s browser, without first passing through your app.
Files are stored in redundant high security, high availability data centers. Data is secure by default and all data stored in the cloud is always encrypted at rest. All inbound and outbound transfers are encrypted.
