yawd-elfinder needs the following packages to be included in your PYTHONPATH. You don’t have to manually install these packages; the setup script checks for dependencies.

  • Django: yawd-elfinder is developed & tested under Django 1.4.
  • PIL: To generate image thumbnails and allow for on the fly image manipulation we use the PIL imaging library.
  • python-magic: This is a pyton module used for mime-type detection.
  • Cache: Although not required, you could use a django cache backend to improve the yawd-elfinder performance. yawd-elfinder uses the caching framework to store file information and directory listings. For more information on how to configure a Django cache backend see the official Django documentation
