django-file-picker is a pluggable Django application used for uploading, browsing, and inserting various forms of media into HTML form fields.
Using jQuery Tools, file_picker integrates seamlessly into pre-existing pages by installing an overlay that lists file details and, when applicable, image thumbnails. New files can also be uploaded from within the overlay (via AJAX Upload).
file_picker provides a few optional extensions to help get started, including file_picker.uploads, an app with pre-built Image and File models, and file_picker.wymeditor, an app that integrates with WYMeditor, a web-based WYSIWYM (What You See Is What You Mean) XHTML editor. These extensions are provided for convenience and can easily be replaced by custom modules.

If you are using django-staticfiles (or django.contrib.staticfiles in Django 1.3) then add file_picker to your INSTALLED_APPS to include the related css/js.
Otherwise make sure to include the contents of the static folder in your projects media folder.
Add file_picker to INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( 'file_picker', 'file_picker.uploads', # file and image Django app 'file_picker.wymeditor', # optional WYMeditor plugin )
file_picker.uploads will automatically create two pickers name 'images' and 'files'.
Add the file_picker URLs to urls.py, e.g.:
import file_picker file_picker.autodiscover() urlpatterns = patterns('', # ... (r'^file-picker/', include(file_picker.site.urls)), # ... )
