Weavy Files API vs. Alternatives

There are a lot of In-App Files APIs. But they all do something a little differently, so how do you find the best fit for your product?

We're here to help.

Let's get to work.

Weavy Files API was designed from the ground up to increase productivity. Our features bring every stage of the document handling workflow where they belong: in your app.

  • File uploader
  • File previews
  • Document sync
  • Automatic version control
  • Third-party integrations

Works great, but are they great for work?

Most Files APIs focus on one or two things they do really well, but can they do it all?


A secure file uploader

Filestack is first and foremost a file uploader, and a good one at that. Filestack gives app developers a way to connect their app to their data warehouse or cloud storage solution.

Filestack reserves important features such as Oauth support and white label styling for their most expensive tier. While Filestack has some functionality for transcoding or modifying files, that's the full extent of what they offer. That means users can't truly work in your app.


A powerful file transfer utility

Transloadit provides the API and the infrastructure to allow secure end-to-end file transfer between users of an app.

Transloadit is designed to move files from point a to point b, with limited options for transforming those files in the middle. Some of these transformations are pretty nifty tricks, but they're far from being productivity features. Transloadit also has strict limits on monthly bandwidth and charges penalties if you go over them.


The open uploader

Uppy is a free open source file uploader API. Its lean code leaves a small footprint in your app, and comes with a variety of open UI options.

Owing to its free and open nature, Uppy doesn't provide any options for hosting, file previews, or document collaboration. That means your team is going to have to do a lot of heavy lifting to get Uppy fully functional within your app.

Great Features. Better Price.

Sure we could charge you for storage, bandwidth, or users. Or we could keep it simple: No caveats. No compromises. Growth friendly.
