Reinforces the Evaporate library to allow Angular-specific usage along with all the native functionality plus additional features. Available injectables:

  1. Evaporate - native lib.

  2. AngularEvaporateException - dedicated exception handler.

  3. AngularEvaporateUpload - file upload handler: + calculates name, url, content type for a new upload, + calculates progress percent, speed and estimated time, + saves status updates with timestamps, + saves info, warning and error messages, + binds Evaporate's API to the upload id, + updates $scope on Evaporate's callbacks, + manages dependent states (e.g. pausing, paused, resumed - only one can be true), + adds meta states (e.g. stopped is when either completed, canceled or failed).

  4. AngularEvaporate - uploads queue handler (extends Evaporate): + manages uploads queue with an ability for every upload to be started later, + allows to specify a default config, which will be merged with every consequent upload's one, + allows to specify a custom naming function, where current instances of AngularEvaporateUpload and AngularEvaporate are available.

  5. angular-evaporate - directive: + lazy mode option - explicit uploading start, + same files uploading option - clean file input after every select.


  1. Install
npm install --save angular-evaporate
  1. Include
<script src="node_modules/angular-evaporate/lib/angular-evaporate.min.js"></script>
  1. Depend
angular.module('yourApp', ['angular-evaporate']);


  1. Inject
yourApp.controller('yourCtrl', ['$scope', 'AngularEvaporate',
  function ($scope, AngularEvaporate) {...}
  1. Init
$ = new AngularEvaporate(...);

`AngularEvaporate` extends [`Evaporate`](, so its constructor accepts the same arguments.
  1. Directive
<div ng-controller="yourCtrl">
  <input type="file" multiple angular-evaporate="ae"/>


npm install && npm test


  1. Configure
Follow the [Evaporate]('s instructions to set up an `S3` bucket, then accordingly update `AngularEvaporate`'s constructor parameters in the `example/index.js` file and `AWS_SECRET_KEY` value in the `example/server.js` file.
  1. Run
npm install && npm start
  1. Check
  1. Hint

Always use server-side validation for incoming requests to the signerUrl, because in this simple example anyone could send you anything he wanted and just get it signed with your secret key.

AngularEvaporate class

Extends Evaporate, therefore accepts the same constructor arguments and provides the same functionality, but also introduces additional features. To not interfere with possible future versions, all added object keys start from the $ symbol.


Property Type Usage Description
$uploads Array essential instances of AngularEvaporateUpload
$apply Function recommended set this to your $scope.$apply.bind($scope) to update UI when needed
$config Object optional default config for an upload (explicitly specified properties on a consequent call of $enqueue() or $add() will have higher priority)
$namer Function optional custom upload naming function (instance of AngularEvaporateUpload as an input argument, instance of AngularEvaporate as this), default one just returns a filename
$speeder Function optional custom speedometer function (input: current speed in bytes/second, output: string in readable format, like '1.23 MB/s')
$url String cautious custom url of the bucket's root directory
$slothmode Boolean optional (directive) lazy mode option - explicit uploading start
$rinserepeat Boolean optional (directive) same files uploading option - clean file input after every select


Function Arguments Result Description
$enqueue same as for Evaporate.add() AngularEvaporateUpload create an upload and append it to the queue
$dequeue AngularEvaporateUpload Number - index in $uploads remove an upload from the queue
$start AngularEvaporateUpload same as from Evaporate.add() start uploading an already queued upload
$add same as for Evaporate.add() same as from Evaporate.add() enqueue and start uploading immediately
Function Arguments Result
- -
same as for Evaporate[fn](undefined, ...), where fn is pause or resume same as from Evaporate[fn](undefined, ...)

AngularEvaporateUpload class


Property Type Usage Description
name String optional desired path from bucket's root directory
contentType String optional MIME type
$id Number read only result of the Evaporate.add()
$url String read only full url of the file when it's uploaded
Number optional of every Evaporate's callback fired
$stopped Number optional value of either $complete, $cancelled or $error
String optional input parameter of the corresponding callback
$percent Number optional current uploading progress
$seconds Number optional estimated elapsed time
$speed String optional average upload speed


Function Arguments Result
$start - same as from Evaporate.add()
same as for the corresponding Evaporate[fn](id, ...) same as from the corresponding Evaporate[fn](id, ...)
