This project provides [Weed-FS](https://code.google.com/p/weed-fs/) integration with Django by giving model field.
This project is built on top of [pyweed](https://github.com/utek/pyweed) project which provides Python implementation of API to Weed-FS.
Thus dependencies are:
- configured Weed-fS
- pyweed module
- django (tested only with 1.6 now, but should work with early releases as well)
pip install django-weed
How to use
django-weed provides WeedFSFileField model field, so if you have regular FileField in your models:
class Book(models.Model): name = models.CharField(_("Name"), max_length=255) content = models.FileField(_("Content"), upload_to=settings.CONTENT_URL)
you can easily convert this FileField to WeedFSFileField:
from djweed.db_fields import WeedFSFileField class Book(models.Model): name = models.CharField(_("Name"), max_length=255) content = WeedFSFileField(_("Content"))
Note: there is no sense in upload_to keyword for Weed-FS as it uses flat file id structure.
After that you can use content almost as before.
>>> book = Book.objects.get(id=1) >>> from django.core.files import File >>> book.content = File(open('/tmp/book_content_1.txt')) >>> book.save() >>> Book.objects.filter(id=1).update(content=File(open('/tmp/book_content_2.txt'))) >>> book.content.size 100 >>> book.content.storage_url http://127.0.0.1:9300/3,1f23101a >>> book.content.name u"3,1f23101a:book_content_2.txt" >>> book.content.verbose_name u"book_content_2.txt" >>> book.content.content[:41] u"These are first words in the book content"
Furthermore, django-weed has integration with Nginx’s X-Accel-Redirect so you can safely serve data from Weed-FS. You have to add djweed to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py and assign url in urls.py to djweed.urls, i.e.:
There is no special Nginx configuration as it supports X-Accel-Redirect out of the box and the link will point to the Weed-FS volume.
Once you configured djweed you could get url from content:
>>> book.content.url "/media/15/1/content/book_content_2.txt"
