Filestack vs Transloadit: What are the differences?

Developers describe Filestack as "Easy, Powerful File Uploads". Filepicker helps developers connect to their users' content. Connect, Store, and Process any file from anywhere on the Internet. On the other hand, Transloadit is detailed as "The world's most versatile file uploading & encoding service for developers". Transloadit handles file uploading & file processing for your websites and mobile apps. We can process video, audio, images and documents.

Filestack and Transloadit belong to "File Uploads" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Filestack are:

  • Connect your app to everything from Dropbox to Gmail in just 2 lines of code and let Filepicker.io handle the mess of uploading files - we give you a clean, short URL that is easy to store and read from.
  • Your files are stored in your existing S3 bucket. We handle all the complicated javascript and backend APIs to give you a clean and elegant way of saving files directly to your S3 bucket.
  • To make it even easier to work with user content, we enable image post-processing. This way, regardless of what type of file a user uploads from the Cloud or their local device, you can be sure it's in exactly the right size. To convert an image, take the filepicker url and append /convert, along with query parameters specifying what you want to change.

On the other hand, Transloadit provides the following key features:

  • Handles file uploads & importing
  • Video & audio encoding
  • Image manipulation
