django-cloudfiles
Summary
-------
The Rackspace Cloud (previously Mosso) offers a file storage service called
CloudFiles. Bundled with CloudFiles is the option to make your files publicly
available over Limelight's CDN.
This app adds a command (publish_cloudfiles) to Django's manage.py script. The
new command publishes all of your media files to your CloudFiles account.
Maturity
--------
Working alpha. Needs to be beat up. Needs testing on Windows.
NOTE: No investigation has been made into whether or not this will continue to
work after RackSpace moves from Limelight to Akami: http://bit.ly/g1x7N6
Instalation
-----------
1. Download the CloudFiles Python API (project developed against 1.3.0):
https://api.mosso.com/clients/cloudfiles/python-cloudfiles-1.3.0.zip
2. Extract the API and put the contained folder cloudfiles/ in your PYTHONPATH.
3. Put django_cloudfiles/ in your PYTHONPATH.
4. Add django_cloudfiles to your INSTALLED_APPS
5. Configure some settings in your settings file (these are optional; they can
be passed on the commad line to manage.py instead of coded in setings.py):
* CLOUDFILES_USERNAME - your Mosso username used for accessing CloudFiles
* CLOUDFILES_API_KEY - your Mosso API key used for accessing CloudFiles
* CLOUDFILES_CONTAINER - the container to upload files to
* MEDIA_ROOT - where the command should upload from
6. (optional) If you use the CDN feature of CloudFiles, set your MEDIA_URL
to be the public URI of your container. NOTE: It's useful to override this
in a settings_dev.py file if you develop offline locally.
