a Django storage backend using GCS JSON API

Project description


django-gapc-storage is a Django storage backend for Google Cloud Storage using the JSON API through google-api-python-client.


  • Django 1.8+


Set the GCS_BUCKET environment variable to the GCS bucket to be used by the storage backend.

Settings can be customized via the GAPC_STORAGE settings dict:

    "allow_overwrite": False,
    "bucket": "my-bucket",
    "cache_control": "public, max-age=3600",
    "num_retries": 0,
    "path_prefix": "",


Default: False

If True, the storage backend will overwrite an existing object with the same name.


Default: os.environ["GCS_BUCKET"]


Default: public, max-age=3600

By default, public-readable objects on GCS have a cache duration of 60 minutes. Set cache_control to private, max-age=0 to disable public caching of objects saved by the storage backend.


Default: 0

Passed to the supported methods on the underlying google-api-python-client client which will retry 500 error responses with randomized exponential backoff.

For more information, see the google-api-python-client documentation.


Default: ""

A prefix appended to the path of objects saved by the storage backend. For example, configuring path_prefix to media would save objects to my-bucket/media.
