    The Python SDK contains 3 adapters (Django, Flask and Pyramid) and you can create your custom adapter by implementing BaseAdapter class:

    # Django adapter example.
    from froala_editor import BaseAdapter
    class DjangoAdapter(BaseAdapter):
    Django Adapter: Check BaseAdapter to see what methods description.
    def checkFile(self, fieldname):
      if fieldname not in self.request.FILES:
        raise Exception("File does not exist.")
    def getFilename(self, fieldname):
      return self.request.FILES[fieldname].name
    def getMimetype(self, fieldname):
      return self.request.FILES[fieldname].content_type
    def saveFile(self, fieldname, fullNamePath):
      with open(fullNamePath, 'wb+') as destination:
        for chunk in self.request.FILES[fieldname].chunks():
    You should override all methods from BaseAdapter
