gcs-resumable-upload

Upload a file to Google Cloud Storage with built-in resumable behavior

$ npm install gcs-resumable-upload
const {upload} = require('gcs-resumable-upload');
const fs = require('fs');
 
fs.createReadStream('titanic.mov')
  .pipe(upload({ bucket: 'legally-owned-movies', file: 'titanic.mov' }))
  .on('progress', (progress) => {
    console.log('Progress event:')
    console.log('\t bytes: ', progress.bytesWritten);
  })
  .on('finish', () => {
    // Uploaded!
  });

Or from the command line:

$ npm install -g gcs-resumable-upload
$ cat titanic.mov | gcs-upload legally-owned-movies titanic.mov

If somewhere during the operation, you lose your connection to the internet or your tough-guy brother slammed your laptop shut when he saw what you were uploading, the next time you try to upload to that file, it will resume automatically from where you left off.

How it works

This module stores a file using ConfigStore that is written to when you first start an upload. It is aliased by the file name you are uploading to and holds the first 16kb chunk of data* as well as the unique resumable upload URI. (Resumable uploads are complicated)

If your upload was interrupted, next time you run the code, we ask the API how much data it has already, then simply dump all of the data coming through the pipe that it already has.

After the upload completes, the entry in the config file is removed. Done!

* The first 16kb chunk is stored to validate if you are sending the same data when you resume the upload. If not, a new resumable upload is started with the new data.

Authentication

Oh, right. This module uses google-auth-library and accepts all of the configuration that module does to strike up a connection as config.authConfig. See authConfig.

API

const {gcsResumableUpload} = require('gcs-resumable-upload')
const upload = gcsResumableUpload(config)

upload is an instance of Duplexify.


Methods

upload.createURI(callback)

callback(err, resumableURI)
callback.err
  • Type: Error

Invoked if the authorization failed or the request to start a resumable session failed.

callback.resumableURI
  • Type: String

The resumable upload session URI.

upload.deleteConfig()

This will remove the config data associated with the provided file.


Configuration

config

  • Type: object

Configuration object.

config.authClient

If you want to re-use an auth client from google-auth-library, pass an instance here.

config.authConfig
  • Type: object
  • Optional

See authConfig.

config.bucket
  • Type: string
  • Required

The name of the destination bucket.

config.configPath
  • Type: string
  • Optional

Where the gcs-resumable-upload configuration file should be stored on your system. This maps to the configstore option by the same name.

config.customRequestOptions
  • Type: object
  • Optional

For each API request we send, you may specify custom request options that we'll add onto the request. The request options follow the gaxios API: https://github.com/googleapis/gaxios#request-options.

For example, to set your own HTTP headers:

const stream = upload({
  customRequestOptions: {
    headers: {
      'X-My-Header': 'My custom value',
    },
  },
})
config.file
  • Type: string
  • Required

The name of the destination file.

config.generation
  • Type: number
  • Optional

This will cause the upload to fail if the current generation of the remote object does not match the one provided here.

config.key
  • Type: string|buffer
  • Optional

A customer-supplied encryption key.

config.kmsKeyName
  • Type: string
  • Optional

Resource name of the Cloud KMS key, of the form projects/my-project/locations/global/keyRings/my-kr/cryptoKeys/my-key, that will be used to encrypt the object. Overrides the object metadata's kms_key_name value, if any.

config.metadata
  • Type: object
  • Optional

Any metadata you wish to set on the object.

config.metadata.contentLength

Set the length of the file being uploaded.

config.metadata.contentType

Set the content type of the incoming data.

config.offset
  • Type: number
  • Optional

The starting byte of the upload stream, for resuming an interrupted upload.

config.origin
  • Type: string
  • Optional

Set an Origin header when creating the resumable upload URI.

config.predefinedAcl
  • Type: string
  • Optional

Apply a predefined set of access controls to the created file.

Acceptable values are:

  • authenticatedRead - Object owner gets OWNER access, and allAuthenticatedUsers get READER access.
  • bucketOwnerFullControl - Object owner gets OWNER access, and project team owners get OWNER access.
  • bucketOwnerRead - Object owner gets OWNER access, and project team owners get READER access.
  • private - Object owner gets OWNER access.
  • projectPrivate - Object owner gets OWNER access, and project team members get access according to their roles.
  • publicRead - Object owner gets OWNER access, and allUsers get READER access.
config.private
  • Type: boolean
  • Optional

Make the uploaded file private. (Alias for config.predefinedAcl = 'private')

config.public
  • Type: boolean
  • Optional

Make the uploaded file public. (Alias for config.predefinedAcl = 'publicRead')

config.uri
  • Type: string
  • Optional

If you already have a resumable URI from a previously-created resumable upload, just pass it in here and we'll use that.

config.userProject
  • Type: string
  • Optional

If the bucket being accessed has requesterPays functionality enabled, this can be set to control which project is billed for the access of this file.
