Rackspace Cloud Files
This is a Ruby interface into the Rackspace Cloud Files service. Cloud Files is reliable, scalable and affordable web-based storage hosting for backing up and archiving all your static content. Cloud Files is the first and only cloud service that leverages a tier one CDN provider to create such an easy and complete storage-to-delivery solution for media content.
As of gem version 1.4.8, the connection method has changed from positional arguments to a hash of options. This is the new style:
cf = CloudFiles::Connection.new(:username => "MY_USERNAME", :api_key => "MY_API_KEY")
This is the old style, which still works but is deprecated:
cf = CloudFiles::Connection.new("MY_USERNAME","MY_API_KEY")
gem sources -a http://gemcutter.org/ sudo gem install cloudfiles
To use it in a Rails application, add the following information to your config/environment.rb
See the class definitions for documentation on specific methods and operations.
require 'rubygems' require 'cloudfiles' # Log into the Cloud Files system cf = CloudFiles::Connection.new(:username => "MY_USERNAME", :api_key => "MY_API_KEY") # Or, if you want to access the United Kingdom cloud installations, there's a handy constant: cf = CloudFiles::Connection.new(:username => "MY_USERNAME", :api_key => "MY_API_KEY", :auth_url => CloudFiles::AUTH_UK) # Get a listing of all containers under this account cf.containers => ["backup", "Books", "cftest", "test", "video", "webpics"] # Access a specific container container = cf.container('test') # See how many objects are under this container container.count => 3 # Upload a file object = container.create_object 'filename.txt', false object.write file # List the objects container.objects => ["bigfile.txt", "new.txt", "test.txt"] # Select an object object = container.object('test.txt') # Get that object's data object.data => "This is test data"
