For a school project, we are doing a website (React & Django Rest Framework) where any user can upload content (audio / picture) inside Albums that they created in first place.
Currently, we use DigitalOcean Spaces as Django Storage Backend as our provider. Which works well, but when we load the images on the Front (React), it's SUPER SLOW which is why I'm adressing you this message right now.
So, my question is, what would be the strategy, on the backend first (provider, endpoints, urls, ...) and then on the frontend (request placeholder after having the first URL returned by our backend?).
The ideal goal is to have the same experience than Pinterest but with Medium-like loading state (small image, expanded and blurred while loading the full res one) ?
Thanks in advance !
