Demo

If you want to see a very simple Django demo project using this module, please take a look at django-chunked-upload-demo <https://github.com/juliomalegria/django-chunked-upload-demo>__.

Installation

Install via pip:

::

pip install django-chunked-upload

And then add it to your Django INSTALLED_APPS:

.. code:: python

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    # ...
    'chunked_upload',
)

Typical usage

  1. An initial POST request is sent to the url linked to ChunkedUploadView (or any subclass) with the first chunk of the file. The name of the chunk file can be overriden in the view (class attribute field_name). Example:

::

{"my_file": <File>}
  1. In return, server with response with the upload_id, the current offset and the when will the upload expire (expires). Example:

::

{
    "upload_id": "5230ec1f59d1485d9d7974b853802e31",
    "offset": 10000,
    "expires": "2013-07-18T17:56:22.186Z"
}
  1. Repeatedly POST subsequent chunks using the upload_id to identify the upload to the url linked to ChunkedUploadView (or any subclass). Example:

::

{
    "upload_id": "5230ec1f59d1485d9d7974b853802e31",
    "my_file": <File>
}
  1. Server will continue responding with the upload_id, the current offset and the expiration date (expires).

  2. Finally, when upload is completed, a POST request is sent to the url linked to ChunkedUploadCompleteView (or any subclass). This request must include the upload_id and the md5 checksum (hex). Example:

::

{
    "upload_id": "5230ec1f59d1485d9d7974b853802e31",
    "md5": "fc3ff98e8c6a0d3087d515c0473f8677"
}
  1. If everything is OK, server will response with status code 200 and the data returned in the method get_response_data (if any).

Possible error responses:


* User is not authenticated. Server responds 403 (Forbidden).
* Upload has expired. Server responds 410 (Gone).
* ``upload_id`` does not match any upload. Server responds 404 (Not found).
* No chunk file is found in the indicated key. Server responds 400 (Bad request).
* Request does not contain ``Content-Range`` header. Server responds 400 (Bad request).
* Size of file exceeds limit (if specified).  Server responds 400 (Bad request).
* Offsets does not match.  Server responds 400 (Bad request).
* ``md5`` checksums does not match. Server responds 400 (Bad request).
