Setting up Pintura Image Editor with Uppy

For a quick start use the Uppy example project included in the product package as a guideline.

To set up the editor with Uppy we use the useEditorWithUppy plugin which is included in the product package.

Before continuing it's highly recommended to read the JavaScript installation guide as it clarifies important internal functionality of the image editor.

Default implementation example

In the default example below we'll use the openDefaultEditor method to quickly create an image editor.

This creates a "default" editor that has all available plugins loaded and comes preset with all plugin default options and English locale. Each of these settings can be adjusted freely.

<script type="module">
    // import Pintura Image Editor functionality
    import { openDefaultEditor } from './pintura/pintura.js';

    // Create Uppy instance
    const uppy = Uppy.Core({
        onBeforeFileAdded: useEditorWithUppy(
            // Method used to create Pintura Image Editor
            openDefaultEditor,

            // The editor options
            {
                imageCropAspectRatio: 1,
            },

            // Reference to Uppy addFile API
            () => uppy.addFile
        ),
    })
        .use(Uppy.Dashboard, { inline: true, target: '#drag-drop-area' })
        .use(Uppy.Tus, { endpoint: 'https://master.tus.io/files/' });
</script>

Advanced implementation example

In this example we'll create a custom editor, using a custom set of plugins, locale, and available options.

While this example is a lot more verbose it does allow us to create a more optimal editor package. The build process will tree-shake unused functionality resulting in a smaller build target.

Next steps

With the editor set up, we can continue to configure the editor to our liking by adjusting the available configuration options
