This article will discuss how to attach images to a model from URLs with ActiveStorage.
In the application root, run these commands:
1 2 rails active_storage:install rails db:migrate
Then in your model, put
post.rb and make sure you have an image attached.
1 2 3 class Post < ApplicationRecord has_one_attached :image end
For uploading images from the web,
open-uri is required. Go ahead and test your implementation from the console.
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 rails console require 'open-uri' image = open('https://cdn3.iconfinder.com/data/icons/flat-icons-web/40/Skype-512.png') post = Post.first post.image.attach(io: image, filename: "image-from-the-web") post.image.attached? => true
In this way, images from the web can be easily uploaded, whether from the console or by using rake tasks. Happy uploading!
