Sometimes the browser shows the file directly on the browser instead of downloading it. To force the browser to download the file, you can use the getDownloadUrl function.

import { getDownloadUrl } from '@edgestore/react/utils';
url, // the url of the file
'overwrite-file-name.jpg' // optional, the name of the file to download

Format file size

You might want to display the file size in a human readable format. You can use the formatFileSize function to do that.

import { formatFileSize } from '@edgestore/react/utils';
formatFileSize(10485760); // => 10MB
