          What are some alternatives to CarrierWave, FilePond, and Uploadcare?
          Paperclip
          It is intended as an easy file attachment library for ActiveRecord. The intent behind it was to keep setup as easy as possible and to treat files as much like other attributes as possible.
          Shrine
          Shrine implements a plugin system analogous to Roda’s and Sequel’s. Shrine ships with over 25 plugins, which together provide a great arsenal of features. Where CarrierWave and other file upload libraries favor complex class-level DSLs, Shrine favours simple instance-level interface.
          Cloudinary
          Cloudinary is a cloud-based service that streamlines websites and mobile applications' entire image and video management needs - uploads, storage, administration, manipulations, and delivery.
          Filestack
          Filepicker helps developers connect to their users' content. Connect, Store, and Process any file from anywhere on the Internet.
          Uppy
          Uppy is a sleek modular file uploader for web browsers. Add it to your app with one line of code, or build a custom version with just the plugins you need via Webpack/Browserify. 100% open source, backed by a company (Transloadit).
