Attachment_fu - the best plugin for Ruby on Rails to download files from the site via HTTP?

What do you use for solving everyday tasks: load an image, resize it, validate the characteristics of a downloaded file, etc.?

Attachment_fu is certainly good, but already quite old.

I always use paperclip. He knows everything that you have named and is very very simple and native. The main feature is that working with files is no different from working with the usual attributes of the model.

Does Paperclip work fine with Rails 3?
And what do you think about the frequency of its update? - talia lefton
I apologize, but you were given a link to GitHub, what else do you need? There's everything there!

About 3 Rail I do not know. Sorry, but you would deal with the second.

What does the refresh rate, if everything works? - eliza edel mcclelland
I started learning Rails 3 right away, so I don’t need Rails 2.

On the githaba you will not always find comprehensive information. You seemed to me a knowledgeable person at Paperclip, that's why you received a clarifying question from me.

The frequency of updates is quite important. I do not want to work with a dying framework / plugin.
An example of a dying person is Attachment_fu.
And here is another example, see how Ruby on Rails is dynamically developing, and I ask you to pay attention to how ruthlessly they sacrifice backward compatibility of versions in order for their product to gain real power. - joyce kitcho

I am using a paperclip.

Attachment_fu is hopelessly outdated. Paperclip is definitely better.

I agree with @qazwsx. There are still carrierwave. Personally, my API is closer in spirit than paperclip, but to each his own, as they say.
