  • How to approach storage/browsing of user-uploaded files in S3 vs locally?

    This has worked well except for one thing: Rich Text editing with image uploads. The site currently uses django-tinymce so that users can insert inline images into blogposts etc. TinyMCE has a file browser built-in, but this doesn't play nicely with S3 storage backends. Even if it did, S3 isn't great for this kind of thing (eg. lots of GET requests to build the file browser UI etc).

    I see. You are right that django-tinymce is using MIT licence. Well, that's the good one right? Haha, I have no idea either but they add a link leading to their website so I guess that's the trade-off I am totally fine with. Maybe I will ask the maintainers. But yeah, the tinymce HTML field works out of the box and in compare with the others it feels pretty snappy because it loads a single JS file. It just works as you would expect and it's localized too! Ok I think this is the winner for me. I will have a look at its settings today.
