A mongo GridFS storage backend for django.

Project Description

A helper app for using MongoDB’s GridFS as a storage backend for django.

mongo_storage contents include:
  • MongoFileModel: a model mixin creating a MongoFileField called content
  • MongoDeleteFileModel: a model mixin that will delete the underlying file when the model is deleted
  • MongoFileField: a custom file field that gives you access to the file name through a ‘file_name’ property. Useful because the GridFSStorage makes Django store the MongoDB ObjectId instead of the file name.
  • GridFSStorage: the Django storage module to interact with the pymongo, MongoDB’s python adapters
  • MongoFileAdminMixin: gives the ModelAdmin access to the stored file’s file name and file size.
  • DeleteActionMixin: allows ModelAdmin to call the delete method on each model being deleted (so the underlying file will be delete also) when deleting items in bulk.
  • mongodb Database
  • pymongo
  • django
