dogstorage is a so called *development storage engine*.
Many people have the problem with gigantomanic production databases with
gigabytes of pictures/files. It is a pain to keep the image files synchronised
between development and production environments.
Therefore I have written this storage engine. In case a file is not found,
an image from placedog.com_ will be used/displayed
If you are sick of dogs, you might want to check out _django-kittenstorage_.
It's on pypi.
``pip install django-dogstorage``
Feel free to clone from github too. Forking is welcome as well :-)
In your django settings file:
``DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'dogstorage.storages.GreyDog'``
dogstorage offers two engines:
Choose depending on the saturation you want. I prefer ``GreyDog`` since it
does have a pretty classy look.
There is only one setting:
Default: ``(1024, 1024)``
A tuple of format `(width, height)`, specifiying the size of the image
requested from placedog__.
.. _placedog.com: http://placedog.com/
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
