# Paperclip allows file attachments that are stored in the filesystem. All graphical
# transformations are done using the Graphics/ImageMagick command line utilities and
# are stored in Tempfiles until the record is saved. Paperclip does not require a
# separate model for storing the attachment's information, instead adding a few simple
# columns to your table.

# Paperclip defines an attachment as any file, though it makes special considerations
# for image files. You can declare that a model has an attached file with the
# +has_attached_file+ method:
# class User < ActiveRecord::Base
# has_attached_file :avatar, :styles => { :thumb => "100x100" }
# end
# user =
# user.avatar = params[:user][:avatar]
# user.avatar.url
# # => "/users/avatars/4/original_me.jpg"
# user.avatar.url(:thumb)
# # => "/users/avatars/4/thumb_me.jpg"
# See the +has_attached_file+ documentation for more details.

# Provides configurability to Paperclip. There are a number of options available, such as:
# * whiny_thumbnails: Will raise an error if Paperclip cannot process thumbnails of
# an uploaded image. Defaults to true.
# * log: Logs progress to the Rails log. Uses ActiveRecord's logger, so honors
# log levels, etc. Defaults to true.
# * command_path: Defines the path at which to find the command line
# programs if they are not visible to Rails the system's search path. Defaults to
# nil, which uses the first executable found in the user's search path.
# * image_magick_path: Deprecated alias of command_path.

module ClassMethods
# +has_attached_file+ gives the class it is called on an attribute that maps to a file. This
# is typically a file stored somewhere on the filesystem and has been uploaded by a user.
# The attribute returns a Paperclip::Attachment object which handles the management of
# that file. The intent is to make the attachment as much like a normal attribute. The
# thumbnails will be created when the new file is assigned, but they will *not* be saved
# until +save+ is called on the record. Likewise, if the attribute is set to +nil+ is
# called on it, the attachment will *not* be deleted until +save+ is called. See the
# Paperclip::Attachment documentation for more specifics. There are a number of options
# you can set to change the behavior of a Paperclip attachment:
# * +url+: The full URL of where the attachment is publically accessible. This can just
# as easily point to a directory served directly through Apache as it can to an action
# that can control permissions. You can specify the full domain and path, but usually
# just an absolute path is sufficient. The leading slash *must* be included manually for
# absolute paths. The default value is
# "/system/:attachment/:id/:style/:basename.:extension". See
# Paperclip::Attachment#interpolate for more information on variable interpolaton.
# :url => "/:class/:attachment/:id/:style_:basename.:extension"
# :url => ""
# * +default_url+: The URL that will be returned if there is no attachment assigned.
# This field is interpolated just as the url is. The default value is
# "/:attachment/:style/missing.png"
# has_attached_file :avatar, :default_url => "/images/default_:style_avatar.png"
# # => "/images/default_small_avatar.png"
# * +styles+: A hash of thumbnail styles and their geometries. You can find more about
# geometry strings at the ImageMagick website
# ( Paperclip
# also adds the "#" option (e.g. "50x50#"), which will resize the image to fit maximally
# inside the dimensions and then crop the rest off (weighted at the center). The
# default value is to generate no thumbnails.
# * +default_style+: The thumbnail style that will be used by default URLs.
# Defaults to +original+.
# has_attached_file :avatar, :styles => { :normal => "100x100#" },
# :default_style => :normal
# user.avatar.url # => "/avatars/23/normal_me.png"
# * +whiny_thumbnails+: Will raise an error if Paperclip cannot post_process an uploaded file due
# to a command line error. This will override the global setting for this attachment.
# Defaults to true.
# * +convert_options+: When creating thumbnails, use this free-form options
# field to pass in various convert command options. Typical options are "-strip" to
# remove all Exif data from the image (save space for thumbnails and avatars) or
# "-depth 8" to specify the bit depth of the resulting conversion. See ImageMagick
# convert documentation for more options: (
# Note that this option takes a hash of options, each of which correspond to the style
# of thumbnail being generated. You can also specify :all as a key, which will apply
# to all of the thumbnails being generated. If you specify options for the :original,
# it would be best if you did not specify destructive options, as the intent of keeping
# the original around is to regenerate all the thumbnails when requirements change.
# has_attached_file :avatar, :styles => { :large => "300x300", :negative => "100x100" }
# :convert_options => {
# :all => "-strip",
# :negative => "-negate"
# }
# * +storage+: Chooses the storage backend where the files will be stored. The current
# choices are :filesystem and :s3. The default is :filesystem. Make sure you read the
# documentation for Paperclip::Storage::Filesystem and Paperclip::Storage::S3
# for backend-specific options.
