In this how-to guide, you'll learn about the different ways that you can list the files that you've uploaded to web3.storage. Once you've stored some files using web3.storage, you'll want to see a list of what you've uploaded. There are two ways you can do this:
- Programmatically using the web3.storage client or CLI
- Using the web3.storage console
For instructions on how to set up your client instance or CLI, check out the Upload section.
