Quick start

  1. Add “filesnow” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:

  2. Include the polls URLconf in your project like this:

    path('filesnow/', include('filesnow.urls'))
        Your URL Pattern must end with concinated string of "+ static(settings.MEDIA_URL, document_root=settings.MEDIA_ROOT)"
        It should look something like
        urlpatterns = [
        path('filesnow/', include('filesnow.urls')) ] + static(settings.MEDIA_URL, document_root=settings.MEDIA_ROOT)
  3. Add the environment variables for media files within filesnow/

        DOWNLOAD_LOC = < Describe Media Directory of your django Project or App >
        APP_MEDIA_URL = < Describe Media URL in case of App >
        Example :
        I have a django project with below descriptions
        django Project name => "docdocgo"
        django App name => "filesnow"
        django App Media directory => C:\\Users\\Jackuna\\PycharmProjects\\docdocgo\\media\\filesnow\\
        Incase we don't have a media directory, create a media directory under django parent project folder
        and then add a folder named by app name.
        docdocgo --> media --> filesnow
        Considering above below is the way we define it.
        DOWNLOAD_LOC = 'C:\\Users\\Jackuna\\PycharmProjects\\docdocgo\\media\\filesnow\\'
    APP_MEDIA_URL = MEDIA_URL+'filesnow/'
  4. Start the development server python runserver

  5. Visit and explore it.
