API Uploading is a simple, flexible way to submit files for processing. Currently, these options are a bit limited, and we’ll simply return you to our site
Uploading via hosted URLs
Files hosted online can be turned into upload links by prefixing them with
This is great for creating easy, up to date links on site like Github, blogs, or any other file hosting service of your choice.
These import links will take you to our upload page and immediately begin processing the file.
Ordering via file upload request
POST file uploads, allowing for boards to be uploaded from many local applications without a remote hosting service.
These requests will generate a url which you can visit to access the file that’s processing.
Currently, it’s not possible to use the api upload to recieve previews, warnings, or add the project to your account. We look forward to this capability in the future though.
We have a brand new Eagle tool that adds an upload button! You can find more information about this at our Eagle Tools project page!
On Mac and Linux systems, you should be able to use the
curl command line utility with little or no configuration. It can also be installed on Windows.

Using Custom Apps
Almost all programming languages can create a
POST file form web request.
The request must have a
multipart/form-data. This most likely will be configured automatically when using a file upload tool.
The file contents must be uploaded in a form data field under the
file parameter. The content type for the file contents should be handled automatically.
If your apppication or framework doesn’t “just work”, try using the
nc) utility to see what’s being sent. On unix systems, you can use this command to create a listener.
nc -l localhost -p 8080
Then simply send a request to
localhost:8080, and netcat will print the data your application is sending. This example shows a header sent by
curl, which is a helpful known-good reference.
