Paperclip is a plugin for Ruby on Rails’ ActiveRecord that lets files work as simply as any other attributes do. There are no extra database tables, only one library to install for image processing, and the ease of being able to refer to your files as easily as you refer to your other attributes.



Commonly needed functionality

Model Name Restrictions

Paperclip will sometimes take issue with applications that use the following model names:

  • “Styles”
  • “Attachments”
