A modern ruby gem for file uploads in Rails and other frameworks, similar to paperclip and attachment_fu


Paperclip is a library for the Ruby on Rails framework which makes dealing with file attachments easier



Seems like paperclip is more file oriented and carrierwave is more object oriented

from question  

Make Carrierwave and jpegcam play nice?

If you re just starting out i would recommend using either paperclip or carrierwave to handle file uploads in a rails app;both projects are really good but i think you ll find that carrierwave is more flexible in the long run

Paperclip is the older one good but feels a bit dated;carrierwave feels more in sync with rails 3 and i ve been hearing a lot of great things about it
