Select a folder to upload

Written byPhuoc Nguyen

We often use the file input to give users a way to choose and upload one or multiple files:
<!-- Upload a single file -->
<input type="file" />

<!-- Upload many files -->
<input type="file" multiple />
The input also has a special attribute named `webkitdirectory` which allows users to choose and upload an entire folder including all of its sub directories recursively.
<input type="file" webkitdirectory multiple />
It's supported in all modern browsers.
