Switching from django-storages to django-storages-redux

django-storages provides a variety of storage backends in a single library. Unfortunately it hasn’t seen a release since March of 2013 despite widespread usage and support for the library.

django-storages-redux is a Python 3 & Django 1.8+ compatible fork of the original library that’s thankfully seeing lots of ongoing maintenance and updates.

Switching over was fairly painless, with just a couple method signatures needing updates.

I highly recommend switching over if you haven’t already.

  1. I have run into this weird problem and it has cost me some hours so I will try to help others:

    You need to install django-storages first, then install django-storages-reflux. You need to have BOTH. Ifa nyone knows why, please explain.
