Active Storage for storing files on disk?

The documentation states that local storage should only be used for testing and developing.

I am using Rails 6 with ruby version 3.0.1. My aim is it to store photos on the disk. I already discovered the gem PaperClip but it seems that it is not ready for my ruby version yet. My question is whether it is advisable to use Active Storage in production with a local disk? Maybe somebody else knows another tool? Or should I manage the files by myself?

I believe it works fine. I think it comes down to the fact that Rails core doesn’t depend on regular disk space in applications they work on there days. And so they don’t want to deal with issues you might come across doing so.

Another example is a SQLite warning for production. Again, it works perfectly, but Rails core decided to warn people against it. Maybe because it also uses a disk space.
