The Filerobot Media Asset Widget (FMAW)

The FMAW is a file uploader and media gallery in one easy-to-integrate modal or inline widget. It is the storefront of the Filerobot DAM and enables accelerated uploads through Filerobot's content ingestion network and reverse CDN. It is an ideal solution for building easily interactive media upload and management experiences in your web or mobile application.

The FMAW allows you to leverage most of the Filerobot DAM capabilities within any 3rd party application with few lines of code. The widget can be integrated in a web page HTML element, as a pop-up modal on button click or floaty in the page.

It leverages the same ingestion network via reverse CDN upload infrastructure as the Asset Hub and the Filerobot API.
