[Django] How to upload a file to via Django REST Framework?

Here is an example to use Parser: MultiPartParser to parse the media type: multipart/form-data. You also can take a look at this for more in detail: http://www.django-rest-framework.org/api-guide/parsers

Client Side via curl: ( Basically you can use either PUT or POST)
Command format:
curl -X PUT -H 'Content-Type:multipart/form-data' -F 'data=@/{your_file}' -u {account}:{password} http://{your server ip address}/

for instance:
curl -X PUT -H 'Content-Type:multipart/form-data' -F 'data=@/Users/administrator/Desktop/2015.12.01.yaml' -u danny:password http://192.168.1.100:8000/api/upload_func/file/



Server side ( Django REST Framework )

in your settings.py, add the following lines
==>
    'DEFAULT_PARSER_CLASSES': (
        'rest_framework.parsers.MultiPartParser',
    )


For your_api.py, you can refer to this example as below:

class UploadAction(APIView):
    permission_classes = (IsAuthenticated, IsAdminOrReadOnly)
    parser_classes = (MultiPartParser,)

    def put(self, request, format=None):
        try:
            # Read uploaded files
            my_file = request.FILES['data']
            filename = "/tmp/" + str(my_file)
            with open(filename, 'wb+') as temp_file:
                for chunk in my_file.chunks():
                    temp_file.write(chunk)
                temp_file.close()
        except Exception as e:
            return Response(status=status.HTTP_500_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR)
        return Response(status=status.HTTP_201_CREATED)


P.S: Please change 'data' to others if you put the different variable name in curl command!!

If you want to get the content of uploaded file, you can directly use the. read() api.
Something like:
if request.FILES.has_key('data'):
    file = request.Files['data']
    data = file.read()
    #you have file contents in data
