Attachment_fu File System Storage Change - Update?


#1

Howdy,

It looks like one of the recent updates to attachment_fu has changed
the way it names/stores files in the filesystem. I’m guessing it was
this one:

  • add default ID partitioning for attachments

Anyway, my files used to be stored in directories named after the PK.
Now it seems that things have changed and files are stored with a new
scheme.

So, anyone have any suggestions as to how I can migrate to the new
storage setup? All the images in my app are broken.

Thanks,
Hunter

Hah, sorry about that. If it makes you feel any better, I broke
Lighthouse too :slight_smile:

For now, you can just hack your model like so:

    def partitioned_path(*args)
      [attachment_path_id] + args
    end

I did a manual migration looping through all the records and moving
them manually. This isn’t the exact code, but something like this
should work.

class Avatar
def old_full_filename(thumbnail = nil)
file_system_path = (thumbnail ? thumbnail_class :
self).attachment_options[:path_prefix].to_s
File.join(RAILS_ROOT, file_system_path, attachment_path_id.to_s,
thumbnail_name_for(thumbnail))
end

Avatar.find(:all).each do |av|
next unless File.exist?(av.old_full_filename)
FileUtils.mkdir_p(File.dirname(av.full_filename))
File.move av.old_full_filename, av.full_filename
end
