How to: Use Callbacks

Callbacks allow you to hook in your own code when a particular CarrierWave event occurs. The following callbacks are available for use in CarrierWave uploaders:

  • :cache
  • :retrieve_from_cache
  • :store
  • :retrieve_from_store
  • :remove

Example

class MyUploader < CarrierWave::Uploader::Base
  #....
  after :cache, :unlink_original

  def unlink_original(file)
    return unless delete_original_file
    File.delete if version_name.blank?
  end
end

Using callbacks for a specific version of uploaded files

When you have multiple versions of files(images) to be processed and just want the callback to be triggered for a particular version then you can simply use the callback within the versions.

Example

class MyUploader < CarrierWave::Uploader::Base
  #....

  version :thumb50 do
    process :resize_to_fit => [50, 50]
  end

  version :thumb100 do
    process :resize_to_fit => [100, 100]
    after :store, :callback_method
  end

  def callback_method file
   puts self.version_name
  end
end
