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.
