1. Install using npm:

npm install filepond

2. Then import in your project:

import * as FilePond from 'filepond';

// Create a multi file upload component
const pond = FilePond.create({
    multiple: true,
    name: 'filepond'

// Add it to the DOM

3. Or get it from a CDN:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <title>FilePond from CDN</title>

  <!-- Filepond stylesheet -->
  <link href="https://unpkg.com/filepond/dist/filepond.css" rel="stylesheet">


  <!-- We'll transform this input into a pond -->
  <input type="file" class="filepond">

  <!-- Load FilePond library -->
  <script src="https://unpkg.com/filepond/dist/filepond.js"></script>

  <!-- Turn all file input elements into ponds -->


4. The locale folder contains different language files, PR’s are welcome, you can use locale files like this:

import pt_BR from 'filepond/locale/pt-br.js';
