DEPOT is a framework for easily storing and serving files in web applications on Python2.6+ and Python3.2+.

DEPOT supports storing files in multiple backends, like:

* Local Disk
* In Memory (for tests)
* On GridFS
* On Amazon S3 (or compatible services)

and integrates with database by providing files attached to your SQLAlchemy or Ming/MongoDB models with respect to transactions behaviours (files are rolled back too).

Installing

Installing DEPOT can be done from PyPi itself by installing the filedepot distribution::

$ pip install filedepot

Getting Started

To start using Depot refer to Documentation <https://depot.readthedocs.io/en/latest/>_

DEPOT was presented at PyConUK and PyConFR <http://www.slideshare.net/__amol__/pyconfr-2014-depot-story-of-a-filewrite-gone-wrong>_ in 2014

standalone


Here is a simple example of using depot standalone to store files on MongoDB::

    from depot.manager import DepotManager

    # Configure a *default* depot to store files on MongoDB GridFS
    DepotManager.configure('default', {
        'depot.backend': 'depot.io.gridfs.GridFSStorage',
        'depot.mongouri': 'mongodb://localhost/db'
    })

    depot = DepotManager.get()

    # Save the file and get the fileid
    fileid = depot.create(open('/tmp/file.png'))

    # Get the file back
    stored_file = depot.get(fileid)
    print stored_file.filename
    print stored_file.content_type

models
~~~~~~

Or you can use depot with SQLAlchemy to store attachments::

    from depot.fields.sqlalchemy import UploadedFileField
    from depot.fields.specialized.image import UploadedImageWithThumb


    class Document(Base):
        __tablename__ = 'document'

        uid = Column(Integer, autoincrement=True, primary_key=True)
        name = Column(Unicode(16), unique=True)
        content = Column('content_col', UploadedFileField)  # plain attached file

        # photo field will automatically generate thumbnail
        photo = Column(UploadedFileField(upload_type=UploadedImageWithThumb))


    # Store documents with attached files, the source can be a file or bytes
    doc = Document(name=u'Foo',
                content=b'TEXT CONTENT STORED AS FILE',
                photo=open('/tmp/file.png'))
    DBSession.add(doc)
    DBSession.flush()

    # DEPOT is session aware, commit/rollback to keep or delete the stored files.
    DBSession.commit()

ChangeLog
---------

0.8.0
~~~~~

- Replaced ``unidecode`` dependency with ``anyascii`` to better cope with MIT License.

0.7.1
~~~~~

- Fix a bug in AWS-S3 support for unicode filenames.

0.7.0
~~~~~

- Support for ``storage_class`` option in ``depot.io.boto3.S3Storage`` backend. Detaults to ``STANDARD``

0.6.0
~~~~~

- Officially support Python 3.7
- Fix DEPOT wrongly serving requests for any url that starts with the mountpoint. (IE: ``/depotsomething`` was wrongly served for ``/depot`` mountpoint)
- In SQLAlchemy properly handle deletion of objects deleted through ``Relationship.remove`` (IE: ``parent.children.remove(X)``)
- In SQLAlchemy properly handle entities deleted through ``cascade='delete-orphan'``

0.5.2
~~~~~

- Fixed an *start_response called a second time without providing exc_info* error with storages supporting plublic urls


0.5.1
~~~~~

- URLs generated by ``DepotMiddleware`` are now guaranteed to be plain ascii
- [Breaking change]: Bucket existance with S3 storages should now be more reliable when the
  bucket didn't already exist, but it requires an additional AWS policy: `s3:ListAllMyBuckets` that wasn't required on 0.5.0

0.5.0
~~~~~

- ``depot.io.boto3.S3Storage`` now provides support for accessing S3 with ``boto3``.
  The previously existing ``depot.io.awss3.S3Storage`` can still be used to store
  files on S3 using ``boto``.
- SQLAlchemy integration now handles deletion of files on rollback when session
  is not flushed. Previously flushing the session was required before a rollback too.
- It is now possible to run tests through ``tox`` and build docs through ``tox -e docs``
- DEPOT is now tested against Python 3.6

0.4.1
~~~~~

- Fixed installation error on non-UTF8 systems
- Improved support for polymorphic subtypes in SQLAlchemy

0.4.0
~~~~~

- Support for Python 3.5
- Fixed ``Content-Disposition`` header for filenames including a comma

0.3.2
~~~~~

- ``MemoryFileStorage`` now accepts any option, for easier testing configuration

0.3.1
~~~~~

* Fixed ``Content-Disposition`` header when serving from S3 directly
* Fixed size of SQLAlchemy field on Oracle (was bigger than the allowed maximum)

0.3.0
~~~~~

- ``MemoryFileStorage`` provides in memory storage for files. This is meant to provide a
  convenient way to speed up test suites and avoid fixture clean up issues.
- S3Storage can now generate public urls for private files (expire in 1 year)
- Files created from plain bytes are now named "unnamed" instead of missing a filename.

0.2.1
~~~~~

- ``S3Storage`` now supports the ``prefix`` option to store files in a subpath

0.2.0
~~~~~

- Storages now provide a ``list`` method to list files available on the store (This is not meant to be used to retrieve files uploaded by depot as it lists all the files).
- ``DepotExtension`` for Ming is now properly documented

0.1.2
~~~~~

- It is now possible to use multiple ``WithThumbnailFilter`` to generate multiple thumbnails
  with different resolutions.
- Better documentation for MongoDB ``UploadedFileProperty``

0.1.1
~~~~~

- Fixed a bug with Ming support when acessing ``UploadedFileProperty`` as a class property
- Improved support for DEPOT inside TurboGears admin when using MongoDB

0.1.0
~~~~~

- Added ``DepotManager.alias`` to configure aliases to storage.
  This allows easy migration from one storage to another by switching where the alias points.
- Now ``UploadedFileField`` permits to specify ``upload_storage`` to link a Model Column to a specific storage.
- Added ``policy`` and ``encrypt_key`` options to `S3Storage` to upload private and encrypted files.

0.0.6
~~~~~

- Added `host` option to `S3Storage` to allow using providers different from *AWS*.

0.0.5
~~~~~

- Added `FileIntent` to explicitly provide `content_type` and `filename` to uploaded content.

0.0.4
~~~~~

- Added Content-Disposition header with original filename in WSGI middleware

0.0.3
~~~~~

- Work-Around for issue with `wsgi.file_wrapper` provided by Waitress WSGI Server

0.0.2
~~~~~

- Official Support for AWS S3 on Python3
