In Uppy 1.29, we’ve revamped the Golden Retriever plugin with support for partially recovered “ghost” files, added a disableLocalFiles option to the Dashboard, enabled the ability to preview webcam videos before submitting and provided an uppy.logout() method, along with an assortment of Companion improvements.
Golden Retriever (@uppy/golden-retriever) is Uppy’s innovative plugin that recovers users’ files after an accidentally closed tab/window or a browser crash. Golden Retriever was first introduced a few years ago, during Transloadit’s company meetup in Berlin, and now it finally underwent a proper refactor.
In this release, we’re adding support for “ghosts” — files for which we’ve restored the metadata, but were unable to recover the data blob itself (usually due to its size). In this case, users will see a ghost icon over the file and a “Re-select” button to pick the file again.
The disableLocalFiles: true option will disable drag & drop, and hide the “Browse” and “My Device” buttons, allowing only uploads from plugins, such as Webcam, Screen Capture, Google Drive or Instagram.
