Amelia is a lightweight jQuery plugin that reads and gets a file's metadata (size, file type, base64 encoded string,etc) using the readAsDataURL API.

How to use it:

1. Download and insert the minified version of the jQuery Amelia plugin after jQuery library.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.slim.min.js" 
        integrity="sha384-q8i/X+965DzO0rT7abK41JStQIAqVgRVzpbzo5smXKp4YfRvH+8abtTE1Pi6jizo" 
        crossorigin="anonymous">
</script>
<script src="js/jquery.amelia.min.js"></script>

2. Create a regular file input on the page.

<input type="file" id="myFile">

3. Get the metadata information from a file you selected.

var myNative = [];

$("#myFile").ameliaMetaImages({
  storage: myNative
});

4. Output the metadata information.

console.log(myNative);

5. Specify the allowed file types and max file size.

{
  allowedFiles: [
    "image/gif",
    "image/jpeg",
    "image/png",
    "application/pdf",
  ],
  allowedSize: 5e+6, // bytes (5 mb)
}
