Module: CarrierWave::Mount

Included in:
ActiveRecord
Defined in:
lib/carrierwave/mount.rb

Overview

If a Class is extended with this module, it gains the mount_uploader method, which is used for mapping attributes to uploaders and allowing easy assignment.

You can use mount_uploader with pretty much any class, however it is intended to be used with some kind of persistent storage, like an ORM. If you want to persist the uploaded files in a particular Class, it needs to implement a `read_uploader` and a `write_uploader` method.

Defined Under Namespace

Modules: Extension Classes: Mounter

Instance Method Summary (collapse)

Instance Method Details

- (Object) mount_uploader(column, uploader = nil, options = {}, &block)

Mounts the given uploader on the given column. This means that assigning and reading from the column will upload and retrieve files. Supposing that a User class has an uploader mounted on image, you can assign and retrieve files like this:

@user.image # => <Uploader>
@user.image.store!(some_file_object)

@user.image.url # => '/some_url.png'

It is also possible (but not recommended) to omit the uploader, which will create an anonymous uploader class.

Passing a block makes it possible to customize the uploader. This can be convenient for brevity, but if there is any significatnt logic in the uploader, you should do the right thing and have it in its own file.

Added instance methods

Supposing a class has used mount_uploader to mount an uploader on a column named image, in that case the following methods will be added to the class:

image

Returns an instance of the uploader only if anything has been uploaded

image=

Caches the given file

image_url

Returns the url to the uploaded file

image_cache

Returns a string that identifies the cache location of the file

image_cache=

Retrieves the file from the cache based on the given cache name

remote_image_url

Returns previously cached remote url

remote_image_url=

Retrieve the file from the remote url

remove_image

An attribute reader that can be used with a checkbox to mark a file for removal

remove_image=

An attribute writer that can be used with a checkbox to mark a file for removal

remove_image?

Whether the file should be removed when store_image! is called.

store_image!

Stores a file that has been assigned with image=

remove_image!

Removes the uploaded file from the filesystem.

image_integrity_error

Returns an error object if the last file to be assigned caused an integrity error

image_processing_error

Returns an error object if the last file to be assigned caused a processing error

image_download_error

Returns an error object if the last file to be remotely assigned caused a download error

write_image_identifier

Uses the write_uploader method to set the identifier.

image_identifier

Reads out the identifier of the file

Parameters

column (Symbol)

the attribute to mount this uploader on

uploader (CarrierWave::Uploader)

the uploader class to mount

options (Hash=> Object)

a set of options

&block (Proc)

customize anonymous uploaders

Options

:mount_on => Symbol

if the name of the column to be serialized to differs you can override it using this option

:ignore_integrity_errors => Boolean

if set to true, integrity errors will result in caching failing silently

:ignore_processing_errors => Boolean

if set to true, processing errors will result in caching failing silently

Examples

Mounting uploaders on different columns.

class Song
  mount_uploader :lyrics, LyricsUploader
  mount_uploader :alternative_lyrics, LyricsUploader
  mount_uploader :file, SongUploader
end

This will add an anonymous uploader with only the default settings:

class Data
  mount_uploader :csv
end

this will add an anonymous uploader overriding the store_dir:

class Product
  mount_uploader :blueprint do
    def store_dir
      'blueprints'
    end
  end
end
