Filebox - File Sharing Template

About this Template


Filebox is a file-sharing no-code template that allows users to send files either via email or through a shortened URL. It also features rotating full-screen images and animations.
By default, all files are stored in Bubble storage but that can get very costly, however, you can change the upload destination using your own AWS,, or similar storage (one of our plugins would have to be used for that).


  • Responsive design
  • Landing page
  • URL shortener
  • Rotating full-screen images and animations

Setup Guide

Once you have bought or added a template to your account, you will see a dropdown in the New Application popup that lets you pick a template as the basis for the new application.
Note: This can only be done when you create a new app.

After selecting a template you’ve bought, please complete the other fields with the necessary data (i.e: Name of the new app, What kind of application you are building, etc) and press Create a new app.
Tip: A template isn't a theme for your app, but a pre-built set of elements and workflows. You can modify the template as you would modify another app.
Wait for Bubble to load the application with all the data.
