Newbie in dire need of help - Uploading

Hey there,

so I've just started to learn Ruby on Rails. I actually managed to create an simple, one-line-plain-text app and deploy it on Heroku.

The app is supposed to be an image uploading website, but instead of storing the images on the filesystem, I want them to be cURL'ed to an image hoster's API.

There are a few major problems..

- I have just started with Ruby on Rails and I've never even touched MVC - Storing files on the filesystem is not allowed.

Is there any way to send (uploaded) files via cURL without even temporarily storing them on the filesystem?

I'd be grateful for any newbie-friendly advice.

Thanks! :slight_smile:
