User Avatars with ActiveStorage Discussion
Hi Chris, great episode. I posted a question about ActiveStorage but I have not received any response yet. Basically what i want to do is upload images for a has_many_attached directly from a controller. Let's say that given a folder route, upload all images in that folder, i know how to get the images and all, but i don't now how to attacht all those images?
Thanks in advanced.
I understand how you can create a variant to resize the original uploaded image, but how about other formatting, more specifically making the avatar a circle not a square. I realize that you can use CSS to achieve this, but such CSS doesn't always work. For example Outlook doesn't recognizes rounded corners CSS.
I built an app that generates email signatures and thus I want the image itself to have a circular formatting by applying a mask or something similar. How would I apply such a transformation to the image with active storage? What are the parameters for the variant?
object-fit: cover; don't end up with a perfectly centered image.
Would be interesting to see if it's possible to extend that to add remote URL for avatars — would replace things like Carrierwave pretty much entirely. Another nice to have for a future tutorial: previewing the avatar before saving.
