Django-Tasypie image upload example with JQuery

I'm looking for a way to implement client side file (image) upload from jquery to Django-Tastypie.

So far server side seems correct testing with CURL:

I found this post helpfull Django-tastypie: Any example on file upload in POST?

EDIT : This is what i did with curl ->

in api.py :
class MultipartResource(object):
def deserialize(self, request, data, format=None):
if not format:
format = request.META.get('CONTENT_TYPE', 'application/json')
if format == 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded':
return request.POST
if format.startswith('multipart'):
data = request.POST.copy()
return data
return super(MultipartResource, self).deserialize(request, data, format)

class FooResource(MultipartResource, ModelResource):
img = fields.FileField(attribute="img", null=True, blank=True)
class Meta:
queryset = Foo.objects.all()
authorization= Authorization()

in models.py :
class Foo(models.Model):
img = models.ImageField(upload_to="images", null=True, blank=True)
body = models.CharField(max_length=255)

Then running the following command with curl :

curl -v -F "body=test" -F "img=@my_picture.png" http://localhost:8000/api/v1/foo/

Now i'm trying to do the same with jquery as client instead of curl.....with no luck.
It's difficult to find a working example for Jquery+Tastypie for file upload...

If you have any simple example available thanks for sharing

If you mean using $.ajax() or $.post() then it won't work because Ajax doesn't support file uploads. See e.g. this SO post.

There are some workarounds though - e.g. uploading via form in hidden iframe or flash-based solutions - they are discussed in the SO post mentioned above. None of them are perfect though, so you will have to choose the one which best serves your use case.
