Resource plugin for Play Framework 2
use it like an amazon s3 bucket. It will only store one version of a file since it computes the sha1 hash of the file and uses that as a pathname.
Add plugin to dependencies
// in you're build.sbt file val appDependencies = Seq( "se.digiplant" %% "play-res" % "1.1.1" ) // To simplify the reverse routing we can import the digiPlant namespace TwirlKeys.templateImports += "se.digiplant._"
# Resource plugin save directory # is relative to app, but can be absolute to filesystem also res.default=res/default
GET /res/:file se.digiplant.res.ResAssets.at(file) # If you wan't to separate your resources into separate sources, you can add multiple routes GET /images/:file se.digiplant.res.ResAssets.at(file, "images")
The play-res plugin generates a unique sha1 hash of the file and stores the file on disk in an optimal
4char/4char/sha1hash.ext directory structure.
By only having to save the fileuid (5564ac5e3968e77b4022f55a23d36630bdeb0274.jpg) to the db it's easy to retrieve the image or other document.
Here are a few examples on how to get files
<img src="@res.routes.ResAssets.at("5564ac5e3968e77b4022f55a23d36630bdeb0274.jpg")" alt="" />
Or if you wan't to get the route to an file stored in a different source
<img src="@res.routes.ResAssets.at("5564ac5e3968e77b4022f55a23d36630bdeb0274.jpg", "images")" alt="" />
You can specify multiple sources if you would like to split you resources into categories, such as profile images / uploads.
By then adding another source in
you will also have to add another route
GET /profile/:file se.digiplant.res.ResAssets.at(file, "profile")
