The plugin provides drag’n’drop file uploads and uses the wp rest api to upload the file. BTW, I've written a similar plugin that uses the WordPress AJAX API for file uploads.

dropzonejs-wp-rest-api.php

dropzonejs-wp-rest-api.js

Save dropzonejs-wp-rest-api.js in wp-content/plugins/dropzonejs-wp-rest-api/js/
