Project description

This package uses django-cumulus (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/django-cumulus) and softlayer-object-storage-python (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/softlayer-object-storage).

Link to github repository: https://github.com/Arpaso/django-softlayer

Settings

Add the following to your project’s settings.py (your SoftLayer credentials):

CUMULUS = {
    'USERNAME': 'YourUsername', # your SoftLayer user name
    'API_KEY': 'YourAPIKey',    # SoftLayer api key
    'CONTAINER': 'ContainerName' # SoftLayer container(folder) name
    'NETWORK': 'private', # Paid 'private' or free 'public' network is available
}

CLOUD_FILE_STORAGE = 'django_softlayer.SoftLayerStorage'
INSTALLED_APPS = [
    ...
    'django_softlayer',
    ...
]

Usage

To use this storage:

  • import storage class, and create your own storage.py:

    from django_softlayer import SoftLayerStorage
    from django.utils.functional import LazyObject
    from django.conf import settings
    
    class MyStorage(LazyObject):
        def _setup(self):
            self._wrapped = get_storage_class(settings.CLOUD_FILE_STORAGE)()
    
  • Then you can use it in models.py:

    from storage import MyStorage
    
    class MyModel(Model):
        file = models.FileField(storage=MyStorage())
    
  • That’s all.

To upload files to storage from folder, check for the command usage:

./manage.py syncstatic --help

Testing

To run tests:

./manage.py test django_softlayer
