Database storage for Django files

Project Description
# Database storage for Django
This package implements the Django Storage API to store any file in any database supported by Django. In many cases it is a bad idea to store files in database because performance can degrade rapidly.

## Requirements
* Python 2.7, 3+
* Django 1.7+

## Installation
1. Install using pip:

pip install django-dbase-storage



3. Run migrations to create table to store files

python migrate dbfile

Now you can set default storage for the whole project in settings:


or specify it for certain fields of your models:

class UserFiles(models.Model):
file = FileField(storage=DatabaseStorage())

##Known issues
DatabaseStorage fails to store file if debug-toolbar is enabled. Debug-toolbar converts binary to UTF-8 somewhere
