This plugin allows to upload files to a page and include it in the text as an embedded image or a link.
Using the standard template, it extends the
edit page with a new button ‘Attachments’
In old-fashioned browsers without FormData support (i.e. Internet Explorer < 10) the ajaxified upload form (including the uploading progress bar) degrades to a popup window.
It requires django-sendfile as an extra requirement. Install it via pip:
$ pip install django-sendfile
sendfile to your
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'waliki', 'waliki.attachments', ... 'sendfile', ... )
The permissions over attachment are inherited from the container page.
- To view or download an attachment, the user needs the permission
view_pageover the page’s slug to which the attachment belongs.
- To upload a new attachment,
- and to delete,
In order to serve the attached files using your web server, but still checking permission, Waliki uses django-sendfile , which wraps the different techniques (for different webserver) to do this.
You need to define the
SENDFILE_BACKEND to use. For a basic configuration set:
SENDFILE_BACKEND = 'sendfile.backends.simple'
by default, Waliki uploads attachments to the path
<MEDIA_ROOT>/waliki_attachments/<page_slug>/<filename>. Override the function
WALIKI_UPLOAD_TO in your settings if you need another structure.
Read the django-sendfile documentation for specific instructions if you use Nginx or Apache.
