Hi everyone, this is something that has been asked several times and still 
there's no specific solution.

I need to upload files by using a Rest API, so far I know we have nice ways 
to implement our apps in web2py

http://www.web2pyslices.com/slice/show/1533/restful-api-with-web2py is one 
way, simple and clean.

the other one is 


both work perfectly fine wiith regular form data, as it comes with uploads 
they dont.

following the recipe from Bruno I can upload files by using curl like this

    curl POST -F "name=myfile" -F "image=@/home/user/myimgfile.png"

and it works.

In this new project I need to upload several images and some other format 
files (csv, doc, pdf, xls), as now I'm working with Vue.js and Axios it 
would be awesome (and somehow faster) applying it.

when I try to send the request using axios in this way

   let img=e.target.files;
   let formData = new FormData();

   formData.append('file', img[0]);
        name:'test from axios',
        }, { headers: { 'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data' } })
        .then((response)=>{console.log('file uploaded');})

server returns an error

couln't find much on that error but an old post in this group from 2012


Any suggestions?, meanwhile I'm still trying to make it work.
