elFinder is a jQuery file manager providing standard features -such as uploading, moving, renaming files etc-, as well as a set of advanced features such as image resizing/cropping/rotation and archive file creation.
yawd-elfinder provides a fully-featured python/django implementation for the elfinder connector v.2. A custom Model Field (tied to a nice form widget) is also provided. Therefore, you can easily manage your files through the Django admin interface, assign them to model fields and access the file URLs in your Django templates.
The implementation follows the original PHP connector logic; you have full control over the allowed mime types, hidding/locking specific folders etc. In future release we plan to implement an FTP volume driver.
