Hi! I'm Rik, in March this year I launched FilePond.js an open source file upload library πŸš€ Doka.js was initially going to be a plugin for FilePond, but as the project grew I figured it would work better as a stand-alone solution. So here we are! Doka.js features everything you need to handle image cropping on your website. Turning, rotating, flipping, setting a fixed or free aspect ratio, client-side transforming of raster images (and SVG's), mobile photo orientation correction, loading from various file origins, rendering fullscreen, in a container, and editing images in-place. 🀯 As Doka.js is a vanilla JavaScript solution and features a straight-forward file-in πŸ’« file-out API it easily integrates with existing platforms and libraries. To lower the bar even further the package contains helper functions and examples for linking with Dropzone, Uppy, jQuery File Upload, and of course FilePond. πŸ”Œ Doka.js is named after the Dutch short word for "Donkere kamer" which stands for "photography Darkroom", so, now you know. With my Dutch roots, that seemed fitting. πŸ§€ That's it for now! I'm going to grab a β˜•οΈ and will be here all day to answer your questions.
Doka takes away the pain from your site's users having to edit images on their own devices and letting them do it on-site super smoothly.
@levelsio Thanks Pieter!

I've seen this product built by Rik for months & months polishing it to every last detail & sharing all the cool GIFs on Telegram & Twitter. This has to be the best image editor. Great job Rik πŸŽ‰

Pros:

Best Image Editor out there

Cons:

None

Great product. But in my opinion, the price model is too high for a plugin. The amount should cover lifetime updates. For this kind of money per year you get software that offer a wide variety of options. For example Sketch or any other similar per-year subscriptions.
@bjohn Thanks for the feedback Janez! Pricing is often a subject of discussion. I've thought about pricing a lot. I feel it's important my customers purchase a product that functions and continues functioning into the future, you purchase a guarantee that if it doesn't function I will help you out. You're paying for continuous personal support and updates. The goal is to create an environment in which I can keep building and extending the product without running out of funds, I think this is in the customers best interest.
Considering how awesome FilePond.js is, Doka.js definitely won't disappoint. Congrats on the launch Rik!
@ronald Thanks for the kind words Ronald!
