Uppy 1.27: Drop Target plugin, Vue 3 support, Dashboard dynamic meta fields, “Shared with me” in Google Drive

· 3 min read

In Uppy 1.27 we’ve added a new @uppy/drop-target plugin, enabled support for Vue 3, introduced dynamic metaFields option for Dashboard, Google Drive now lists documents that have been shared with you.

Drop Target

With @uppy/drop-target it is now possible to turn your whole app / page (or any other element, like <textarea>, for instance) into a drag-and-drop area:

uppy.use(DropTarget, {
target: document.body,

Google Drive “Shared with me”

If you connect Uppy to Google Drive, you’ll now see a new virtual folder called “Shared with me” — there you’ll find (hard to guess, I know), documents that have been shared with you.

Dashboard Dynamic metaFields

Sometimes you may want to show specific meta fields for certain type of files. For instance, you may want to show location and alt attribute for images. Now, instead of setting a fixed array of fields, you can pass a function that will be called for each file, returning an array of fields from it:

.use(Dashboard, {
trigger: '#pick-files',
metaFields: (file) => {
const fields = [{ id: 'name', name: 'File name' }]
if (file.type.startsWith('image/')) {
fields.push({ id: 'location', name: 'Photo Location' })
fields.push({ id: 'alt', name: 'Alt text' })
return fields

See Dashboard metaFields docs for details.

Vue 3

@uppy/vue integration now supports Vue 3! This is done by checking the arguments of the render function and determining whether it is using Vue 2 or 3, and then returning the appropriate rendering method.

Companion CORS and Better Testing

In Companion, we’ve improved unit testing DX (#2827) and switched to using the cors module instead of custom cors logic (#2823).

@coreprocess submited a fix that allows Companion to serve on a subpath (#2797), and added Redis pubsub scope setting (#2804)!

npm 7

We’ve finally upgraded our monorepo to npm 7 and Workspaces. If you are a contributor, please upgrade npm install npm -g, as npm 7 is now required for the Uppy repo.

PR #2835

New Linter Rules

Quite a few new rules have been added to our eslint-config, which is now mostly eslint-config-transloadit with some custom uppy-specific overrides.
