Is there a way to show images from localhost machine ?
@Ginjo The image widget only accepts images as url/base64 at the moment. We have an open issue related to this -[Feature] Allow users to upload images to appsmith servers so they can be used in image widgets · Issue #1089 · appsmithorg/appsmith · GitHub Please upvote and comment which will help us prioritise the feature.
If you want to upload an image file, you can use the filepicker widget instead.
Ok thanks . I don’t want to upload a file . Just to show in the UI. Is there an option to show uploaded image in image widget without storing it anywhere?
@Ginjo Unfortunately, this is not possible as images cannot be uploaded to Appsmith servers today. However as mentioned earlier, this is an open feature request [Feature] Allow users to upload images to appsmith servers so they can be used in image widgets · Issue #1089 · appsmithorg/appsmith · GitHub . Please do add your comments to it
Yes, need this feature as well.
@Gene could you tell us a bit about your use case? Is there a reason you don’t want to upload these files to a filestore system like S3 or Cloudinary. These are much better at serving images optimally
I’m trying to build an app for a trucking company, where a dispatcher can upload driver license pictures for driver’s profile.
@Gene this should definitely be possible. You need to use a file picker widget and upload the response to a storage like S3.
This is a guide on how to achieve this
