A switchable ImageField for third party Django applications
This module offers a abstraction over the various image fields, so allow third party applications can provide an imagefield at the authors choice.
Supported image fields:
First install the module, preferably in a virtual environment. It can be installed from PyPI:
pip install django-any-imagefield
Or the current folder can be installed:
pip install .
Add the module to the installed apps:
INSTALLED_APPS += ( 'any_imagefield', )
In a Django model, the field can be included:
from django.db import models from any_imagefield.models import AnyImageField class Article(models.Model): title = models.CharField("Title", max_length=200) image = AnyImageField("Image", upload_to='images') class Meta: verbose_name = "Article" verbose_name_plural = "Articles" def __unicode__(self): return self.title
By default, the AnyImageField displays a standard ImageField with a preview thumbnail. When django-filebrowser-no-grappelli-django14 or django-filebrowser-no-grappelli is installed, it will use the FileBrowseField from that package to display the file/image browser. When your package has it’s own ImageField variant/subclass, please consider to add support for it in this package.
This module is designed to be generic. In case there is anything you didn’t like about it, or think it’s not flexible enough, please let us know. We’d love to improve it!
If you have any other valuable contribution, suggestion or idea, please let us know as well because we will look into it. Pull requests are welcome too. :-)
