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.

Documentation

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.
uploader.upload_chunk()

# Uploads the entire file.
# This uploads chunk by chunk.
uploader.upload()

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

# Continue uploading chunks till total chunks uploaded reaches 1000 bytes.
uploader.upload(stop_at=1000)

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',
                       url='http://master.tus.io/files/abcdef123456',
                       chunk_size=200)
