TUS Command line (tusc) is a small static binary for both server and client of tus resumable upload protocol.

Personally, I need tusc for uploading files in a CI process and a simple UI for downloading (like nginx autoindex). The chunked and resumable feature make it possible to bypass some payload size limitation imposed by proxy (e.g. cloudflare). Also, small size of binary make it convenient to be included in docker image.

Quick Start

Visit releases page and download the tusc binary.

$ curl -LO<version>/tusc_linux_amd64 -o tusc
$ chmod u+x tusc 

Start server

$ tusc server -b -p 8080

Create and upload a file

$ echo test > test.txt
$ tusc client text.txt     # not resumable
$ tusc client text.txt -r  # resumable

And then visit to file listing page



TUSC is a wrapper of tusd with an additional listing page. Features like S3, GCS, Prometheus, Hooks are removed from tusd, in favor of smaller binary size.
