django-any-imagefield

This module offers a abstraction over the various image fields, so allow third party applications can provide an imagefield at the project choice.

Supported image fields:

Installation

First install the module, preferably in a virtual environment. It can be installed from PyPI:

pip install django-any-imagefield

Configuration

Add the module to the installed apps:

INSTALLED_APPS += (
    'any_imagefield',
)

Usage

In a Django model, the field can be included:

from django.db import models
from any_imagefield.models import AnyImageField

class Article(models.Model):
    title = models.CharField("Title", max_length=200)
    image = AnyImageField("Image", upload_to='images')

    class Meta:
        verbose_name = "Article"
        verbose_name_plural = "Articles"

    def __unicode__(self):
        return self.title

By default, the AnyImageField displays a standard ImageField with a preview thumbnail. When django-filebrowser-no-grappelli is installed, it will use the FileBrowseField from that package to display the file/image browser. When your package has it's own ImageField variant/subclass, please consider to add support for it in this package.
