Hey everyone thank you for the help in advance, i am having a hard time getting the Large Media to work. I am using create-react-app so i am not sure if that falls under one of the limitations listed in the docs, but i figured i should throw that out there
Ive gone through all the setup and this is my response when i run netlify lm:info
And the files i want to be uploaded do appear when i run git lfs ls-files (i cant attach another image as i am a new user but trust me they do show up haha)
However after i implemented all this the pictures stopped showing up on the live site and they do not show up under the large media tab on the netlify dashboard, ive looked through a lot of the posts here where there were similar problems but none of their solutions really helped me much. I was just going to disable it but apparently its harder that it sounds so i decided to try and fix it first. Any help would be appreciated, thank you
I decoded this base64 encoded string and see this:
$ echo "dmVyc2lvbiBodHRwczovL2dpdC1sZnMuZ2l0aHViLmNvbS9zcGVjL3YxCm9pZCBzaGEyNTY6MDMyYTZjYzExNWNjZDAwMjljOTc3NDg5Y2JhMGM3YWViOTFhOWJkNTVkMWI1Yzk0YTZiZjgyZjU0MWE0MDMzOQpzaXplIDMzMDg4Mwo=" | base64 --decode
This is a Git LFS text pointer instead of the image itself. This is a limitation of Large Media as documented here, quoting:
Files tracked with Large Media are uploaded directly to the Netlify Large Media storage service on push, completely bypassing the site build. This saves build time, but also means that the files are not available to tools that process asset files during the build, such as Hugo’s image processing or the gatsby-image plugin. Depending on your needs, you may be able to replace this functionality with Netlify’s image transformation service.
To summarize, either the site build will need to be changed to store the images in their original format or the Large Media add-on will need to be removed for this site.
If you want to uninstall Large Media for this site, would you please confirm you have read the following Support Guide?
If you have read that, please confirm you have backups of all files and let us know you are ready for the add-on to be removed.
Please let us know if there are any questions and/or if we should uninstall Large Media for this site.
