Django Storage Engine which returns images of kittens if files could not be found.
kittenstorage 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 placekitten.com will be used/displayed instead.
It’s on pypi.
pip install django-kittenstorage
Feel free to clone from github too. Forking is welcome as well :-)
In your django settings file:
DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'kittenstorage.storages.GreyKitten'
kittenstorage offers two engines:
Choose depending on the saturation you want. I prefer GreyKitten 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 placekitten.
