Azure Storage
====

A custom storage system for Django using Windows Azure Storage backend.


Settings
====

``DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE``

This setting sets the path to the Azure storage class::

    DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'storages.backends.azure_storage.AzureStorage'


``AZURE_ACCOUNT_NAME``

This setting is the Windows Azure Storage Account name, which in many cases is also the first part of the url for instance: http://azure_account_name.blob.core.windows.net/ would mean::
   
   AZURE_ACCOUNT_NAME = "azure_account_name"

``AZURE_ACCOUNT_KEY``

This is the private key that gives your Django app access to your Windows Azure Account.

``AZURE_CONTAINER``

This is where the files uploaded through your Django app will be uploaded. 
The container must be already created as the storage system will not attempt to create it.
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
