Here a mockup how it could look like on nodebb.org forum:
I'd like to enable users to upload csv, pdf, and png files. Probably a lot of them over time. Will a Redis database be able to handle this? (I'm planning to set this up with AWS.) Thanks!
Sure, but it's not storing the binary contents of the files in the database, they get saved in a folder in your NodeBB directory under /public/uploads
yup, attachments are saved to your local and not redis. looking forward to a plugin that uploads to a CDN
That will be awesome!
Oh! So redis just points to the files but they're stored separately and don't need to be stored in memory?
Any tips for setting this up on AWS? Thanks!
@aaron there's now a S3 plugin for NodeBB uploads, I developed it whilst working at Kano.
