Django-tastypie: Any example on file upload in POST?
Could anyone give a complete example on using the tastypie FileField, both server-side and client-side please?
Here's what I have tried:
#models.py class Foo(models.Model): img = models.ImageField(upload_to="images", null=True, blank=True) body = models.CharField() #api.py class FooResource(ModelResource): img = fields.FileField(attribute="image", null=True, blank=True) class Meta: queryset = Foo.objects.all()
If I try to create a foo object using curl, e.g.,
>>> curl -F "body=test" -F "img=@local_img.png" http://localhost:8000/api/0.1/foo/
A foo object is successfully created, but the img field is null. I can see in debugger that when saving the bundle object indeed has a img field which contains a InMemoryUploadedFile object, so the request is probably ok. Where am I doing wrong? Code snippets are most welcome, thanks!
Your Resources should look like this:
class FooResource(ModelResource): img = fields.FileField(attribute="img", null=True, blank=True) class Meta: queryset = Foo.objects.all()
The attribute should correspond to the field in the model. As stated in the documentation:
A string naming an instance attribute of the object wrapped by the Resource.
