Hello everyone! 👋 Founder and developer of Shubox here. I'm here to make myself available for any questions that you might have regarding shubox.io and what it can do for you. It's a nice, contained, little app that aspires to make your life easier when it comes to uploading, resizing, transforming, and most of all, giving you the room and the tools to make it work exactly how you WANT it to work. If there's a differentiator between Shubox and the other great services, it's that it gives you the tools on the front-end to make the uploading process behave and look exactly how you would like. The hard stuff — getting it from your browser to S3, transforming your images — you can leave that to us too. Shubox also provides all of its event (upload, transform) information back to you and your app via webhooks. We have many things in the works that aim to make things as *easy as possible* for our customers and implementers so do feel free to let us know what YOU would like to see in a service like this.

@jayroh Can you use it for files other than images?

@jamesdevonport yes indeed, sir. It does. In fact I have recently integrated it with a client app to upload Excel spreadsheets for some legacy data extraction. Worked like a charm!

@jamesdevonport That is excellent. Never hesitate to reach out if there's anything that feels off, or that I could help with - on any front! I'm reachable at my first name at the domain :D

@jayroh Does Shubox do any sort of validation? Like image validation?

I've been using this product for a few months and I love it. It is flexible, yet remains incredibly simple to use and get started. Set up is minimal and making impressive UIs is a cinch. I'd definitely recommend it.

@jayroh If I want to transform an image after already uploading it? Is that possible? Example: I upload 1000 user avatars and decide later I need a new size for all of them.

@mscccc For right now, no. But this is high up in the "Upcoming" column. This is something I've wanted myself, and others have asked for. Now that this is shipped we can get back to prioritizing some features. That being said, there are some "peanut butter and chocolate" scenarios where some other SaaS products work SUPER well with Shubox that I will be blogging about.

@rob__race I wouldn't want to let this go by without extending a humongous thank you for finding and posting this in the first place. If there's anything I can do to assist with helping you use Shubox, I think I can swing it ;)
