How is it? Any extension?

You can as example try Upload file for example :wink:
Set request headers to make list- make list - item 1 : Content-Type item2 = multipart/form-data
Set url to https://{server}.gofile.io/uploadFile
Create a post request to build request data from a list that consists from 1 another list with two items.Item 1 = file item 2 = your file ( example from the website = @file.txt )
If i said some thing wrong you can correct me.:wink:

You will get response like that:
You will need to parse it to dictionaries using my extension here
And then you can use get block in the dictionaries to get any of the keys the json have like the token for example.An example of a response:


No. It is PHP Scripts with CURL Library or another language.


Web Component.

Can you show me an example in blocks please? I don’t have a lot of experience on HTTP post and request :sweat_smile: @Mohamed_Tamer
How can execute the curl commands on my app? @Rogerio_Rios

With web component + PHP with CURL Library commands.
Look this API example in PHP CURL, This is an example of another API. You will have to adapt it …

    $ch = curl_init();    
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, "https://api.openrouteservice.org/v2/directions/driving-car");
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, TRUE);
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, FALSE);

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, TRUE);

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, '{"coordinates":[[8.681495,49.41461],[8.686507,49.41943],[8.687872,49.420318]]}');

    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
      "Accept: application/json, application/geo+json, application/gpx+xml, img/png; charset=utf-8",
      "Authorization: your-api-key",
      "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8"

    $response = curl_exec($ch);

I get the error:
Error 1103
Unable to put the text file=logo.png with the specific URL…

That isn’t a file.A file is something like that : @file.txt. Can you show me your blocks?
BTW, have you replaced the server word here:

With you sever.
Please show me you blocks :slightly_smiling_face:

Yes. I have replaced the server name. I haven’t put the @ before the asset name :sweat_smile:

You can’t upload assets as i think but i’m not sure :thinking: Also can you show you blocks?

So what type of files can I upload? (I’ve tried with assets and I can’t)

Still isn’t working?BTW, the @ part is very important.And still.you can’t read files from assets.Try with files from storage.

It still not working with file of image picker

You just need the file name and not the full path.Something like

What users need to learn and to understand how an API and the APIs they want to consume work, not the ready blocks. :+1:t2:
