Filemanager is a simple Django app to browse files on server. You can also integrate this filemanager with CKEditor.
Install it by
pip install -e git+https://github.com/IMGIITRoorkee/django-filemanager.git#egg=django-filemanager
Add "filemanager" to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this::
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'filemanager', )
As a filemanager : To upload files on server by a user to a directory and let him manage his directory by adding, renaming and deleting files and folders inside it.
Integrating it with CKEditor for the functionality of "Browse Server".
As a filemanager
In urls.py of your app to make filemanager run at url /abc/
from filemanager import path_end urlpatterns = patterns('app', . . (r'^abc/'+path_end,'view'), )
And then write the view in views.py of your app
from filemanager import FileManager from settings import MEDIA_ROOT def view(request,path): fm = FileManager(MEDIA_ROOT+'user_folder/') return fm.render(request,path)
And it is done.
Adding constraints to Filemanager : FileManager _init_ is defined as
def __init__(self,basepath,ckeditor_baseurl='',maxfolders=50,maxspace=5*1024,maxfilesize=1*1024,public_url_base=None,extensions=None): """ basepath: User's directory basepath in server. maxfolders: Maximum number of total nested folders allowed inside the user directory. maxspace (in KB): Maximum space allowed for the user directory. maxfilesize (in KB): Limit for the size of an uploaded file allowed in user directory. extensions: List of extensions allowed. Ex. ['pdf','html'] etc. public_base_url: A base_url if given there will be an option to copy file url with the given url_base. """
Hence one should also pass arguments like maxfolders, maxspace, maxfilesize if one doesn't want to use the default ones. If extensions list is not passed then all file-extensions are allowed for upload.
Integrating with CKEditor
Use filemanager.models.CKEditorField field in you model. Or you can use filemanager.widgets.CKEditorWidget as a widget for CKEditor in forms.
Both classes can take an extra argument filemanager_url while making instances from them.
Suppose you want to run filemanager at url
/abc/ in your app then make changes in urls.py and views.py like above.
Then in CKEditorField or CKEditorWidget pass the url of filemanager as argument filemanager_url.
For example in models.py :
from filemanager.models import CKEditorField class MyModel(models.Model): . . content = CKEditorField(filemanager_url='/app/abc/')
