glacieruploader

A simple java command line application for Amazon Glacier. You can find the latest version at https://github.com/MoriTanosuke/glacieruploader/.

How to get it

Either download the latest binary, or build from source.

You can download a nightly build from our the CI server.

How to run

You need a file named aws.properties with 2 lines:

accessKey=your_aws_access_key
secretKey=your_secret_key

When running the uploader, specify the path to this file with --credentials /path/to/aws.properties or set the default in your configuration file. If you don't specify this option, the default is to search for the file in javas user.home directory.

Configuration file

Available since 0.0.6

If you don't want to specify the options credentials, vault and endpoint every time, you can create a configuration file .glacieruploaderrc and enter the options there. The default is to search for the configuration file in java user.home directory.

This is an example of the configuration file:

credentials=/home/myuser/some/path/mysecretaws.properties
endpoint=https://glacier.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com
vault=myvaultname

This is not working for me. What should I do?

Go to my Issues page and add a new issue with a nice report about what's failing for you. Try to provide enough information so I can help you out and fix the error for everyone. It might be a good idea to check for existing issues before reporting a new one.

And as always, you can fork me and fix the error yourself. :-)
