# django-s3sign
s3 sign view for django

## installation

$ pip install django-s3sign

## usage

Add `s3sign` to `INSTALLED_APPS`. Subclass `s3sign.views.SignS3View`
and override as needed. Eg with a different root path:

from s3sign.views import SignS3View


class MySignS3View(LoggedInView, SignS3View):
root = 'uploads/'

With a different S3 bucket:

class MySignS3View(LoggedInView, SignS3View):
def get_bucket(self):

keeping the uploaded filename instead of doing a random one and
whitelisted extension:

class MySignS3View(LoggedInView, SignS3View):
def _original_filename(self, request):
return request.GET[self.get_name_field()]

def basename(self, request):
filename = self._original_filename(request)
return os.path.basename(filename)

def extension(self, request):
filename = self._original_filename(request)
return os.path.splitext(filename)[1]

Attributes you can override:

name_field = 's3_object_name'
type_field = 's3_object_type'
expiration_time = 10
mime_type_extensions = [
('jpeg', '.jpg'),
('png', '.png'),
('gif', '.gif'),
default_extension = '.obj'
root = ''
path_string = (
amz_headers = "x-amz-acl:public-read"

Methods you can override:

get_mimetype(self, request)
extension_from_mimetype(self, mime_type)
now(self) # useful for unit tests
now_time(self) # useful for unit tests
get_object_name(self, extension)

Most of those should be clear. Read the source if in doubt.

The required javascript is also included, so you can do a
`collectstatic` and include it in your page with:

<script src="{{STATIC_URL}}s3sign/js/s3upload.js"></script>

TODO: more documentation on making the upload form.
