Looking for file drop code


Recommended Posts

I want PHP code to let me do similar to wetransfer - where you can just upload files by dropping them into the browser window.


You can email a link or just get a link


Files get automatically deleted after xx time


The whole concept seems super simple. I thought there would be plenty of open source code doing the same out there?

Cant find any. I have found one script - only $17 - no problem buying - but just thought there are bound to be well developed free open source code?

Well-developed, free, open-sourced code that happens to do exactly what you want and precisely how you want to do it? If I put it that way, does it make it clearer as to why you haven't found it yet?


HTML 5 has a drag and drop API you would use to get the file uploaded. Storing the file works just like any other file upload. Expiration is a matter of using a cronjob to run a script which finds and deletes old files.
