file import via CGI

Project description

Author Robert Sudwarts

For uploading files via web interface.

Basic scope of the problem

Functionality for:

  • uploading large files using buffered chunks
  • scaling down large images

Package Components

  1. upload.writefile() accepts a FieldStorage instance and writes in buffered chunks to the specified directory.
  2. Image files can be written ‘as is’ or scaled to a specified size and [at the same time] as a thumbnail image of a specified size.
  3. A Thumb class to check for existence of thumbnail/create/delete etc

Change Log

  • v.0.1.5 when scaling image to thumbnail image is given file extension .jpg
  • v.0.1.4 added “Pillow>=2.0.0” as a dependency to setup.py.
    This package is required instead of PIL
  • v.0.1.3 added conditional ‘scale’ to writefile() so that this package can be used for all types of files (not just images)
