Direct (client-side) HTTP POST file upload to S3 using Django forms/views.

Project description

Direct (client-side) HTTP POST file upload to S3 using Django forms/views.

This project is under development, and so should be used in production environments with a high degree of caution.


Please be VERY careful with security considerations, and check you know exactly what is happening. S3 HTTP POST upload will overwrite existing files if the key matches. You will want to limit uploads to trusted users, and use unique key prefixes. You will want to make sure that any processing of uploaded files is safe.

See also:


  • Create signed forms for client-side uploading of files directly in to Amazon S3 buckets using HTTP POST:
  • A view to handle/validate the returned parameters from the upload, and a hook to process the uploaded file.
  • An extended form/view which uses dropzone.js for handling multiple uploads with thumbnails and progress bars.


You’ll need to set-up & configure an Amazon S3 Boto storage backend using django-storages:


Install django-storages-s3upload by running:

pip install django-storages-s3upload
