A good phoenix alternative to Rails ActiveStorage?

What is a good alternative to Rails ActiveStorage in Phoenix world?

Arc for uploads and storage themselves.

For transformations I’d recommend imgix unless you really want to bring the file through your server to transform it with imagemagick. ActiveStorage used minimagick which is just a thin abstraction to make command line calls to imagemagick, so that’s all that’s happening there.

No matter what, you are going to want the final image variation cached on CDN which is why I just recommend using imgix to start with since it already does that with a CDN that’s 2/3 the rate of Cloudfront.

LOL – it might be a bit of a leap to assume every use case for file
upload involves “images” and “transforms”…

It would be a stretch to assume that…
