Actix Form Data

A library for retrieving form data from Actix Web's multipart streams. It can stream uploaded files onto the filesystem (its main purpose), but it can also parse associated form data.


Add it to your dependencies.

# Cargo.toml

actix-web = "4.0.0-beta.3"
actix-form-data = "0.6.0-beta.1"

Require it in your project.

// src/ or src/

use form_data::{Field, Form, Value};


First, you'd create a form structure you want to parse from the multipart stream.

let form = Form::new().field("field-name", Field::text());

This creates a form with one required field named "field-name" that will be parsed as text.

Then, pass it as a middleware.


In your handler, get the value

async fn upload(value: Value) ->  {

And interact with it

let field_value = match value {
    Value::Map(mut hashmap) => {
    _ => return None,



/// examples/

use actix_form_data::{Error, Field, Form, Value};
use actix_web::{
    web::{post, resource},
    App, HttpResponse, HttpServer,
use futures::stream::StreamExt;

async fn upload(uploaded_content: Value) -> HttpResponse {
    println!("Uploaded Content: {:#?}", uploaded_content);

async fn main() -> Result<(), anyhow::Error> {
    let form = Form::new()
        .field("Hey", Field::text())
                .field("One", Field::int())
                .field("Two", Field::float())
            Field::array(Field::file(|_, _, mut stream| async move {
                while let Some(res) = {
                Ok(()) as Result<(), Error>

    println!("{:?}", form);

    HttpServer::new(move || {
