- Download chunked_transfer.py and client_secrets.json to the same directory.
- As of August 2012, the Google APIs interface to Google Cloud Storage (a.k.a. the GCS JSON API) is in Limited Preview, so users must request access from the API Console Services tab: https://code.google.com/apis/console/#:services
- Visit the API Console Access tab to create a client ID and secret for an installed application: https://code.google.com/apis/console/#:access
- Add your client ID and secret to your client_secrets.json file.
- The first time the script runs, it will open a browser window asking for permission to access Google Cloud Storage on your behalf. After you've granted permission, the script creates a credentials.json file, which stores the access and refresh tokens acquired from the OAuth flow.
USAGE: This script uploads and downloads files in chunks between Google Cloud Storage and your local filesystem. It accepts two arguments: a file path and a Cloud Storage resource name in "gs:///" format. The order of these arguments dictates whether to upload or download (source first, destination second).
For example, this command uploads filename to bucket 'foo' with object name 'bar':
$ python chunked_transfer.py Desktop/file_1 gs://foo/bar
and this command downloads that object back to a file on the desktop:
$ python chunked_transfer.py gs://foo/bar Desktop/file_2
When an upload concludes, the script prints the new object's JSON representation.
