npm version Build Status Coverage Status Dependency Status

tus is a new open protocol for resumable uploads built on HTTP. This is the tus protocol 1.0.0 node.js server implementation.

Installation

$ npm install tus-node-server

Flexible Data Stores

  • Local File Storage

    server.datastore = new tus.FileStore({
        path: '/files'
    });
  • Google Cloud Storage

    server.datastore = new tus.GCSDataStore({
        path: '/files',
        projectId: 'project-id',
        keyFilename: 'path/to/your/keyfile.json',
        bucket: 'bucket-name',
    });
  • Amazon S3 (coming soon)

    server.datastore = new tus.S3Store({
        path: '/files',
        bucket: 'bucket-name',
    });

Quick Start

Use the tus-node-deploy Docker image

$ docker run -p 49160:8080 -d bhstahl/tus-node-deploy

Build a standalone server yourself

const tus = require('tus-node-server');

const server = new tus.Server();
server.datastore = new tus.FileStore({
    path: '/files'
});

const host = '127.0.0.1';
const port = 8000;
server.listen({ host, port }, () => {
    console.log(`[${new Date().toLocaleTimeString()}] tus server listening at http://${host}:${port}`);
});

Use tus-node-server as Express Middleware

const tus = require('tus-node-server');
const server = new tus.Server();
server.datastore = new tus.FileStore({
    path: '/files'
});

var app = express();
app.all('/files/*', function(req, res) {
  server.handle(req, res);
});
app.listen(port, host);

Features

Events:

Execute code when lifecycle events happen by adding event handlers to your server.

const Server = require('tus-node-server').Server;
const EVENTS = require('tus-node-server').EVENTS;

const server = new Server();
server.on(EVENTS.EVENT_UPLOAD_COMPLETE, (event) => {
    console.log(`Upload complete for file ${event.file.id}`);
});
  • EVENT_FILE_CREATED: Fired when a POST request successfully creates a new file

    Example payload:

    {
        file: {
            id: '7b26bf4d22cf7198d3b3706bf0379794',
            upload_length: '41767441',
            upload_metadata: 'filename NDFfbWIubXA0'
         }
    }
    
  • EVENT_ENDPOINT_CREATED: Fired when a POST request successfully creates a new upload endpoint

    Example payload:

    {
        url: 'http://localhost:8000/files/7b26bf4d22cf7198d3b3706bf0379794'
    }
    
  • EVENT_UPLOAD_COMPLETE: Fired when a PATCH request finishes writing the file

    Example payload:

    {
        file: {
            id: '7b26bf4d22cf7198d3b3706bf0379794',
            upload_length: '41767441',
            upload_metadata: 'filename NDFfbWIubXA0'
        }
    }
    

Custom GET handlers:

Add custom GET handlers to suit your needs, similar to Express routing.

const server = new Server();
server.get('/uploads', (req, res) => {
    // Read from your DataStore
    fs.readdir(server.datastore.path, (err, files) => {
        // Format the JSON response and send it
    }
});

Custom file names:

const fileNameFromUrl = (req) => {
    return req.url.replace(/\//g, '-');
}

server.datastore = new tus.FileStore({
    path: '/files',
    namingFunction: fileNameFromUrl
});

Development

Start the demo server using Local File Storage

$ npm run demo

Or start up the demo server using Google Cloud Storage

$ npm run gcs_demo

Then navigate to the demo (localhost:8000) which uses tus-js-client
