posthaste

OpenStack Swift threaded operation utility for Uploading, Downloading and Deleting

https://pypip.in/v/posthaste/badge.png https://pypip.in/d/posthaste/badge.png

Requirements

posthaste currently requires gevent, which in turn requires greenlet and libevent.

The "new" Gevent (as of this writing, 1.0 RC 2) alleviates the libevent dependency and thus simplifies the process of using tool. More information can be found on Github.

Usage

usage: posthaste [-h] [--version] -c CONTAINER [-r REGION] [--internal]
                 [-t THREADS] [-u USERNAME] [-p PASSWORD]
                 [-i {rackspace,keystone}] [-a AUTH_URL] [-v]
                 {delete,upload,download} ...
