Dead simple drop-in multi file upload field for django forms using HTML5's multiple attribute.

Project description

Django Multiupload

Build Status

Dead simple drop-in multi file upload field for django forms using HTML5's multiple attribute.


  • Install the package using pip (or easy_install if you really have to)
$ pip install django-multiupload
  • Or directly from this repository to get the development version (if you're feeling adventurous)
$ pip install -e git+


Add the form field to your form and make sure to save the uploaded files in the form's save method.

For more detailed examples visit the examples section.

from django import forms
from multiupload.fields import MultiFileField, MultiMediaField, MultiImageField

class UploadForm(forms.Form):
    attachments = MultiFileField(min_num=1, max_num=3, max_file_size=1024*1024*5)

    # If you need to upload media files, you can use this:
    attachments = MultiMediaField(
        media_type='video'  # 'audio', 'video' or 'image'

    # For images (requires Pillow for validation):
    attachments = MultiImageField(min_num=1, max_num=3, max_file_size=1024*1024*5)

The latter two options just add fancy attributes to HTML's <input>, restricting the scope to corresponding filetypes.

from django.db import models

class Attachment(models.Model):
    file = models.FileField(upload_to='attachments')
from django.views.generic.edit import FormView
from .forms import UploadForm
from .models import Attachment

class UploadView(FormView):
    template_name = 'form.html'
    form_class = UploadForm
    success_url = '/done/'

    def form_valid(self, form):
        for each in form.cleaned_data['attachments']:
        return super(UploadView, self).form_valid(form)
