The backblaze api requires https, so you need to provide a Client with a https connector. Such a client can be created with the api call below:
extern crate hyper; extern crate hyper_native_tls; use hyper::Client; use hyper::net::HttpsConnector; use hyper_native_tls::NativeTlsClient; let ssl = NativeTlsClient::new().unwrap(); let connector = HttpsConnector::new(ssl); let client = Client::with_connector(connector);
Unfortunately because of the hyper api design, the upload functionality in this library requires the connector instead of the client, and since the client consumes the connector, you'll have to make two of them.
I have made a proof of concept command line tool using this library, which can be viewed here.
