Rails Accessing an Uploaded File and Saving it to PaperClip

Hello, I’m using the following file uploader with Rails 3:

The uploader on the client side is working fine. I can see in the
Rails log file that the following is being posted when I upload a
file:

Started POST "/attachments/upload" for 127.0.0.1 at Mon Jan 24

14:15:25 -0800 2011
Processing by AttachmentsController#upload as /
Parameters: {"_http_accept"=>“application/javascript”,
“authenticity_token”=>“F1h9pvCZL9HUgTjwCIAMc%252BW1cYwx7eBOPwThHfbS5ZU
%253D”, “file”=>#<ActionDispatch::Http::UploadedFile:0x1076a6d48
@content_type=“image/jpeg”, @headers=“Content-Disposition: form-data;
name=“file”; filename=“joecocker.jpg”\r\nContent-Type: image/jpeg\r
\n”, @original_filename=“joecocker.jpg”, @tempfile=#<File:/var/folders/
lF/lF0Ne5vGFj44kV54W3zBdU+++TI/-Tmp-/RackMultipart20110124-12264-
rbtnth-0>>}

The issue I’m having is I’m unable to save the uploaded file to
Paperclip.

I’ve ried:

@attachment = Attachment.create(:attachment =>

File.open(params[:file].tempfile.path))
@attachment = Attachment.create(:attachment =>
params[:file].tempfile.path)

And neither work. Paperclip inserts a file attachment name of
“RackMultipart20110124-12264-rbtnth-0”

Any ideas / suggestions on how to save the file to paperclip? thanks

Paperclip.

I’ve ried:

@attachment = Attachment.create(:attachment =>
File.open(params[:file].tempfile.path))
@attachment = Attachment.create(:attachment =>
params[:file].tempfile.path)

It should happen almost automatically. Make sure:

Model:

has_attached_file :attachment

View – make sure multipart:

<%= form_for(@attachment, :html => { :multipart => true }) do |f| %>

Controller – should be business as usual –

@attachment = Attachment.new(params[:billing_run])
