User 'folders' for uploaded files?
Is there any best practice / tutorial for organizing user uploaded files?
In my app I have an 'uploadable' polymorphic structure where the user can upload files to pretty much any model etc.
Currently the structure is flat - all files ar dumped into a bucket per associated record. My users are going to want to organize these in a normal MacOS Finder / Windows Explorer file structure.
My thought is to add a nested 'folder' structure DB table (with the ansectry gem). It
uploadable record and then each upload
belongs_to a folder. If there is no folder it's just a root file or a have a default root folder for consistancy.
Does this seem reasonable? Am I missing anyting here?
