Dynamically storing files in Amazon S3


Hi there everyone.

In keeping with the 'DRY' theme of django, I'm looking for a good way
to do the following.

* My application allows users to upload files, which their clients
then view on a sister site.
* To allow for scale, I want to use Amazon S3 or similar, so
that I don't have to overly limit their file upload sizes.

*I need to figure out (programatically) how to upload the files to s3,
secure them, and then store the access information in django's db, so
that links to the files can be called from the web interface is a
secure fashion.

I googled around and it looks like most django users are using it for
static files, but I know things like pownce are using s3 dynamically.

Any help is appreciated.

Best,
Jacob
