Paperclip integration


#1

Hi all,

First of all, great work on typo!

I have been using typo hosted on heroku for a few months now with only a
few issues, first and foremost of which is image uploads (which
obviously
don’t survive a server restart).

I have been thinking about adding S3 functionality via the paperclip gem
to
solve this problem for myself. Would anyone else find this useful? If
so, I
would appreciate some tips on the best way to integrate this into typo
as a
plugin, or configuration option (or however you like this kind of thing
to
be done).

I assume the process for integrating would be via a pull request?

Thanks,

Richard

Same issue here.

Yes, definitely. I talked to Frdric about this last year, and I
suggested using Fog. I didn’t know about Paperclip, but it seems to be
easier to implement the functionality using it.

Paperclip requires ImageMagick and optionally Ghostscript, and Heroku
supports ImageMagick and Ghostscript.


Best regards, Lars Tobias

Hello,

Typo 6.1.2 is now using Fog for file upload. Should wrk with S3 as well
then, but I didn’t test it.

Have a nice day,
Fred
