Django Storage Engine which returns images of kittens if files could not be found.

Project description

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.

Setup

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'

Storage Engines

kittenstorage offers two engines:

  1. kittenstorage.storages.GreyKitten
  2. kittenstorage.storages.ColorKitten

Choose depending on the saturation you want. I prefer GreyKitten since it does have a pretty classy look.

Settings

There is only one setting:

KITTEN_SIZE

Default: (1024, 1024)

A tuple of format (width, height), specifiying the size of the image requested from placekitten.
