This is an external storage driver for Imager X that uploads your Imager transforms to DigitalOcean's Spaces object storage. Spaces is an AWS S3 compatible object storage, so the plugin utilizes the same S3 client as Imager's AWS storage does.

This plugin also serves as a good reference point if you want to create your own external storage driver for Imager to integrate with an unsupported third-party object storage. It's really simple, and you can do it either from a Craft 3 plugin, if you want to share it with the rest of the community (please do!), or a module, if you're using something proprietary/custom.


This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.3.0 or later, and Imager X 3.0 or later. External storages are only available in the Pro edition of Imager.


To install the plugin, follow these instructions:

  1. Install with composer via composer require spacecatninja/imager-x-do-spaces-driver from your project directory.
  2. Install the plugin in the Craft Control Panel under Settings > Plugins, or from the command line via ./craft install/plugin imager-x-do-spaces-driver.


Configure the storage driver by adding new key named dospaces to the storagesConfig config setting in your imager-x.php config file, with the following configuration:

'storageConfig' => [
    'dospaces' => [
        'endpoint' => '',
        'accessKey' => '',
        'secretAccessKey' => '',
        'region' => '',
        'bucket' => '',
        'folder' => '',
        'requestHeaders' => array(),

Enable the storage driver by adding the key dospaces to Imager's storages config setting:

'storages' => ['dospaces'],

Here's an example config, note that the endpoint has to be a complete URL with scheme, and as always you need to make sure that imagerUrl is pointed to the right location:

'imagerUrl' => '',
'storages' => ['dospaces'],
'storageConfig' => [
    'dospaces'  => [
        'endpoint' => '',
        'accessKey' => 'MYACCESSKEY',
        'secretAccessKey' => 'MYSECRETKEY',
        'region' => 'ams3',
        'bucket' => 'imager-test-bucket',
        'folder' => 'transforms',
        'requestHeaders' => array(),

Also remember to always empty your Imager transforms cache when adding or removing external storages, as the transforms won't be uploaded if the transform already exists in the cache.

Price, license and support
