IpfsCloud Upload Button Widget

Using this you can embed IpfsCloud button to your site. A user can click the widget, which will prompt the user to add a file to be uploaded. After choosing the file the upload will start and an on completion of the upload, an event will be fired which can be used to:

  • check the status of the upload("success" or "failed")
  • retrieve data related to the upload(file "hash" and "size")

How to use?

Here is a sample code to get started:

<!--CSS CDN link for IpfsCloud widget-->
<link href="" rel="stylesheet">

        <!--this div element will form the button-->
        <div id="IpfsCloudUploader"></div>

<!--JQuery needed for functioning of the widget-->
<script src="" integrity="sha256-FgpCb/KJQlLNfOu91ta32o/NMZxltwRo8QtmkMRdAu8=" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>

<!--JS CDN link for IpfsCloud widget-->
<script src="" ></script>

The above sample will display a button wherever you place the div tag with id IpfsCloudUploader.

Events are fired through the global element ipfscloud.

ipfscloud.addEventListener("icevent", function(event) {

The event icevent outputs the following when upload is completed or an error is encountered while uploading:

  • In case of successful upload:
    "status" : "success",
    "data": {
        "hash": "hash of the uploaded file",
        "path": "path of the uploaded file",
        "size": size of the file in bytes
    "error": null
  • In case of error encountered while uploading a file:
    "status" : "failed",
    "data": null,
    "error": "some error"

NOTE that the UI is handled automatically after a successful upload or a failure.
