A Python client for the tus resumable upload protocol
Clone or download


tus-py-client Build Status

tus is a protocol based on HTTP for resumable file uploads. Resumable means that an upload can be interrupted at any moment and can be resumed without re-uploading the previous data again. An interruption may happen willingly, if the user wants to pause, or by accident in case of a network issue or server outage.

tus-py-client is a Python client for uploading files using the tus protocol to any remote server supporting it.


See documentation here: http://tus-py-client.readthedocs.io/en/latest/

Get started

pip install tuspy

Now you are ready to use the api.

from tusclient import client

# Set Authorization headers if it is required
# by the tus server.
my_client = client.TusClient('http://master.tus.io/files/',
                              headers={'Authorization': 'Basic xxyyZZAAbbCC='})

# Set more headers.
my_client.set_headers({'HEADER_NAME': 'HEADER_VALUE'})

uploader = my_client.uploader('path/to/file.ext', chunk_size=200)

# A file stream may also be passed in place of a file path.
fs = open('path/to/file.ext')
uploader = my_client.uploader(file_stream=fs, chunk_size=200)

# Upload a chunk i.e 200 bytes.

# Uploads the entire file.
# This uploads chunk by chunk.

# you could increase the chunk size to reduce the
# number of upload_chunk cycles.
uploader.chunk_size = 800

# Continue uploading chunks till total chunks uploaded reaches 1000 bytes.

If the upload url is known and the client headers are not required, uploaders can also be used standalone.

from tusclient.uploader import Uploader

my_uploader = Uploader('path/to/file.ext',
