The latest version of yawd-elfinder allows you to manage your remote files through the application and link them to your models using Django file storages. There exist several 3rd party storage applications (like django-storages, django-dropbox etc.) that enable connection to various remote systems. Amazon s3, ftp and sftp backends, even your dropbox public folder are just an example of what can be connected to yawd-elfinder.
However, depending on the driver, remote connections may affect the performance of yawd-elfinder. For example the dropbox storage uses a restful API to perform its operations, meaning that an http request must be sent for any required information. Although yawd-elfinder instantiates each storage only once in an effort to avoid negotiations for subsequent elfinder requests, this is not enough. To improve performance in this case you can use two options that tune the caching behavior of yawd-elfinder.Posted on November 7th, 2012 by Pantelis Petridis
File management with django and yawd-elfinder.
I've always liked elFinder. It is a jQuery application that allows for managing files through a web page. elFinder is capable of uploading, moving, previewing and editing all kinds of files on the fly. In version 2 you can also resize, rotate and crop your images online, so it is a perfect solution for your django website's administration interface. To integrate elfinder with django we created a reusable django application, the yawd-elfinder. In this simple tutorial we will install yawd-elfinder and connect it to our models. For more control over your files, please advice the documentation.Posted on September 24th, 2012 by Pantelis Petridis

If you want to upgrade your old Keystone TKL digital library and exploit the fast performance that Keystone 5 offers, here's what you most likely need to change. Please note that since PHP5 differs significantly over PHP4, you should also modify your custom PHP code, especially if it involves XML/DOM manipulation to work with PHP5.Posted on August 5th, 2011 by Pantelis Petridis
