django-resumable 0.2.0

Django resumable uploads


django-resumable provides django backend stuff that handles resumable.js xhr uploads.


  • pip install django-resumable
  • Add resumable to your INSTALLED_APPS


In order to upload files asynchronous, you must define an endpoint that will deal with uploaded file chunks:

from django.contrib.auth.decorators import login_required

from resumable.views import ResumableUploadView

urlpatterns += patterns('',
    url('^upload/$', login_required(ResumableUploadView.as_view()),

You should also consider having per user chunk upload directory:

class MyResumableUploadView(ResumableUploadView):
    def chunks_dir(self):
        return self.request.user.profile.chunks_dir


If you want to handle resumable upload within your forms, you can use the ResumableFileField that works like django core FileField:

from django.conf import settings
from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse

from resumable.fields import ResumableFileField

class ResumableForm(Form):
    file = ResumableFileField(
        upload_url=lambda: reverse('upload'),
        chunks_dir=getattr(settings, 'FILE_UPLOAD_TEMP_DIR')


django-resumable comes with extendable frontend scripts that work out of the box:

{% load staticfiles %}
<!DOCTYPE html>
        <form method="post" action=".">
                {% csrf_token %}
                {{ form.as_p }}
            <p><input type="submit" value="send" /></p>
        <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="{% static 'resumable/js/django-resumable.js' %}"></script>
        <script type="text/javascript" src="{% static 'resumable/js/init.js' %}"></script>
