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.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
