Are you looking for file upload component for your angular app if yes then in this post I am going to share a simple & configurable file upload component for use with Angular Material.

ngular file upload component

  1. Install package from npm (npm i mat-file-upload).
  2. Add MatFileUploadModule to your module’s imports, like so:
@NgModule({
  declarations: [AppComponent],
  imports: [
    ...
    MatFileUploadModule,
    ...
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
})
export class AppModule {}


  1. Add the element to your template, like so:

Basic:
