This is very interesting but a true upload would write the file out to a server, with all the complexities that involves. File name rules, permissions, paths, umasks etc. Using this code what have we actually uploaded to? The browser’s memory?

Yes John, you are right.

The scope of the article was to introduce the basics and focusing on the Html file upload tag and client side file object.

I am writing a series now to build on top of it to showcase with server side pieces using Node.js. Hoping that will get you what you are asking for. Please stay tuned.

Thanks for reading and commenting!
