Project Description

  • pip install django-admin-resumable-js
  • Add admin_resumable to your INSTALLED_APPS
  • Add url(r'^admin_resumable/', include('admin_resumable.urls')), to your
  • Add a model field eg: from admin_resumable.fields import ModelAdminResumableFileField
class Foo(models.Model):
    bar = models.CharField(max_length=200)
    foo = ModelAdminResumableFileField()


  • Set ADMIN_RESUMABLE_SUBDIR, default is 'admin_uploaded'
  • Use upload_to instead of ADMIN_RESUMABLE_SUBDIR
  • Set ADMIN_RESUMABLE_CHUNKSIZE, default is "1*1024*1024"
  • Set ADMIN_RESUMABLE_STORAGE, default is '' (must be a subclass of, or accept the location init parameter). If you don’t want the default FileSystemStorage behaviour of creating new files on the server with filenames appended with _1, _2, etc for consecutive uploads of the same file, then you could use this to set your storage class to something like
  • Set ADMIN_RESUMABLE_SHOW_THUMB, default is False. Shows a thumbnail next to the “Currently:” link.

from south.modelsinspector import add_introspection_rules

add_introspection_rules([], [

1.1: Bug fix [1]

1.2: Django 1.9 Compatibility

2.0: Added upload_to

[1] Django silently truncates incomplete chunks, due to the way the multipart parser works: This could result in a file being unable to be uploaded, or a corrupt file, depending on the situation.


1.2: {py27,py32,py33,py34,py35}-django{1.6,1.7,1.8,1.9}. python 3.2 and 3.3 supported up to django 1.8.

2.0: {py27,py34,py35}-django{1.8,1.9,1.10}
