Rackspace CloudFiles

Requirements

Mosso's Cloud Files python module http://www.mosso.com/cloudfiles.jsp

Usage

Add the following to your project's settings.py file:

CLOUDFILES_USERNAME = 'YourUsername'
CLOUDFILES_API_KEY = 'YourAPIKey'
CLOUDFILES_CONTAINER = 'ContainerName'
DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'backends.mosso.CloudFilesStorage'

# Optional - use SSL
CLOUDFILES_SSL = True

Optionally, you can implement the following custom upload_to in your models.py file. This will upload the file using the file name only to Cloud Files (e.g. 'myfile.jpg'). If you supply a string (e.g. upload_to='some/path'), your file name will include the path (e.g. 'some/path/myfile.jpg'):

from backends.mosso import cloudfiles_upload_to

class SomeKlass(models.Model):
    some_field = models.ImageField(upload_to=cloudfiles_upload_to)

Alternatively, if you don't want to set the DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE, you can do the following in your models:

from backends.mosso import CloudFilesStorage, cloudfiles_upload_to

cloudfiles_storage = CloudFilesStorage()

class SomeKlass(models.Model):
    some_field = models.ImageField(storage=cloudfiles_storage,
                                   upload_to=cloudfiles_upload_to)
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.
