8,000 stars on GitHub!

Rik Schennink @rikschennink

Yay! FilePond crossed the 8,000 stars mark on GitHub.

It's been around 1.5 years since its launch and it's still going strong.

From a commercial point of view FilePond has been a great way to get developers to try Doka Image Editor. So I'm fully committed to make FilePond even better. I'm hoping to add drag and drop in the near future to make it even more versatile.

        My team loves it. Becoming a customer very soon 💪

        We had been looking for something like this and doka for months to avoid the whole development process. You are a warrior and savior @rikschennink :D

          That's amazing.

          I wonder, what kind of search queries were you using, how were you searching for a solution to the problem you are trying to solve? This info would help me better understand how I should position my product page (it's been around for nearly a year now).

            I honestly don't remember. We were searching for a lot of things + react because my SaaS is built on react.

            So this is perfect.

            I reached out to via Crisp chat, if you guys can build that feature, I am becoming a customer for life :D @rikschennink
