Installing from PyPI is as easy as doing:
pip install django-storages
If you'd prefer to install from source (maybe there is a bugfix in master that hasn't been released yet) then the magic incantation you are looking for is:
pip install -e 'git+https://github.com/jschneier/django-storages.git#egg=django-storages'
Once that is done set
DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE to the backend of your choice.
If, for example, you want to use the boto3 backend you would set:
DEFAULT_FILE_STORAGE = 'storages.backends.s3boto3.S3Boto3Storage'
There are also a number of settings available to control how each storage backend functions, please consult the documentation for a comprehensive list.
django-storages is a project to provide a variety of storage backends in a single library.
This library is usually compatible with the currently supported versions of Django. Check the Trove classifiers in setup.py to be sure.
This repo began as a fork of the original library under the package name of django-storages-redux and became the official successor (releasing under django-storages on PyPI) in February of 2016.
Found a Bug? Something Unsupported?
I suspect that a few of the storage engines in backends/ have been unsupported for quite a long time. I personally only really need the S3Storage backend but welcome bug reports (and especially) patches and tests for some of the other backends.
