I was trying to assign a file from my disk to the FileField, but I have this error:
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'open'
My python code:
pdfImage = FileSaver() pdfImage.myfile.save('new', open('mytest.pdf').read())
and my models.py
class FileSaver(models.Model): myfile = models.FileField(upload_to="files/") class Meta: managed=False
Thank you in advance for your help
Django uses it's own file type (with a sightly enhanced functionality). Anyway Django's file type works like a decorator, so you can simply wrap it around existing file objects to meet the needs of the Django API.
from django.core.files import File local_file = open('mytest.pdf') djangofile = File(local_file) pdfImage.myfile.save('new', djangofile) local_file.close()
You can of course decorate the file on the fly by writing the following (one line less):
