Uppy is an open source project by Transloadit

<DragDrop />

The <DragDrop /> component wraps the @uppy/drag-drop plugin.


Install from NPM:

npm install @uppy/react
// Either:
import DragDrop from '@uppy/react/lib/DragDrop';
// Or:
import { DragDrop } from '@uppy/react';


The DragDrop component includes some simple styles, like shown in the example. You can also choose not to use it and provide your own styles instead:

import '@uppy/core/dist/style.css'
import '@uppy/drag-drop/dist/style.css'

Import general Core styles from @uppy/core/dist/style.css first, then add the Drag & Drop styles from @uppy/drag-drop/dist/style.css. A minified version is also available as style.min.css at the same path. The way to do import depends on your build system.

Initializing Uppy

Your Uppy instance must be initialized before passing it to an uppy={} prop, and should be cleaned up using uppy.close() when you are done with it. A simple approach is to initialize it in your React component’s constructor() and destroy it in componentWillUnmount().

⚠ Uppy instances are stateful, so the same instance must be used across different renders.
Do NOT initialize Uppy in a render() method!
Do NOT initialize Uppy in a function component!

class MyComponent extends React.Component {
  constructor (props) {
    this.uppy = Uppy()
      .use(Transloadit, {})

  componentWillUnmount () {

  render () {
    return <DragDrop uppy={this.uppy} />


The <DragDrop /> component supports all DragDrop options as props.
