Project description

When the production site uploads folder gets really big you don’t want to rsync everything to your local machine just to fix a few bugs. Only download what is needed, right?

That’s what this storage class does.


  1. Make sure that you only use this if DEBUG = True

  2. Add the following settings:

    DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'http_fallback_storage.FallbackStorage'
  3. Optionally, configure logging so that it’s easy to see why page loads would be slow when fetching media files. Either of the following snippets should be fine when added to your settings file:

    import http_fallback_storage
    LOGGING = http_fallback_storage.LOGGING


    # LOGGING has already been defined
    import http_fallback_storage
  4. Optionally, specify a regular expression for skipping file downloads, e.g. the following regex to never download movies:

    FALLBACK_STORAGE_SKIP = r'(\.mp4|\.mov)$'
