Help! Filesystem Questions To Pythonians by webcalculator(m): 9:53am On Oct 26, 2013
Please how can i load a user saved file e.g image and associate it to a particular user in my website. Also how can i allow a user to create a gallery of images which will be associated to a listing. I'm a newbie to programing and i hav a project i'm learning on and this seems to be my greatest problem. I'm developing with pyramid webframework but if you knw hw i can do this in other frameworks please don't hesitate to let me knw. Thanks and God bless you

Since each user will have a number of images to which s/he alone have access I would suggest storing uploaded images in a location inaccessible to your web server but to which your app has read/write privilege. To bind each image to a particularl user u may prefix d file name with d user's unique ID then save d file full path in db. To display d pix simply read d file as binary using data = open('filename', 'rb') return data as d response body setting d mime type appropriately. I've never used Pyramid but here is how u may do it in Django:
#in views.py
from django.http import HttpResponse
def serve_image(filename):
data = open(filename, 'rb')
return HttpResponse(data, mimetype ='application/jpeg')
