React Native – Axios – Trying to upload image

Can’t be sure but in my case I had to add a ‘name’ field to the file. Following other advices, I’ve end up with something like this:

import axios from 'axios';
import FormData from 'form-data';

function upload (data, images, token) {
  const formData = new FormData();
  formData.append('data', data);
  images.forEach((image, i) => {
    formData.append('images', {
      uri: Platform.OS === 'android' ? image.uri : image.uri.replace('file://', ''),
      name: `image-${i}`,
      type: 'image/jpeg', // it may be necessary in Android. 
  const client = axios.create({
    baseURL: 'http://localhost:3001',
  const headers = {
    Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
    'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'
  }'/items/save', formData, headers);
