About The Project

Storj is one of the most popular Cloud Storage which is Decentralized, Secure, Private, Reliable, Affordable

How it works:

  • Objects are encrypted
  • Encrypted objects are split into smaller pieces.
  • Object pieces are globally distributed.
  • Objects are retrieved when you need them.

This project is built with C/C++ and the building result is binding libraries of uplink in nodejs.

Getting Started


  • please ensure make is already installed.
  • proper C/C++ compiler toolchain, like GCC
  • please ensure Node.js with version 10 or higher is installed
    $ node -v
  • please ensure node-gyp dependencies is already installed.
    $ npm install -g node-gyp
  • Make sure your PATH includes the $GOPATH/bin directory, so that your commands can be easily used Refer: Install the Go Tools:
    $ export PATH=$PATH:$GOPATH/bin

Building the Package

  • download the source project
    $ git clone https://github.com/storj-thirdparty/uplink-nodejs.git
  • after changing the source code, build it
    $ npm run preinstall

Testing the Results

The source project includes testing script to test it locally.

  • need to build and release the binaries to root directory of the project
    $ npm install
  • creat secret.txt in root directory of project and input api key getting from access panel whiling creating Access Grant in storj.io
  • In /test/testcase.js, change the satelliteURL with the information getting from access panel whiling creating Access Grant in storj.io
  • run the test
    $ npm test


  • Install the storj-nodejs Node.js package
    $ npm install uplink-nodejs
  • Set Environment variable
    • MacOS
      • Set DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable
        $ export  DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=$DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH:$PWD/node_modules/uplink-nodejs/
      • Copy libuplinkc*.* files from $PROJECTROOT/node_modules/uplink-nodejs/ to /usr/local/lib
    • Linux
      • Set LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable
        $ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$PWD/node_modules/uplink-nodejs/
      • Copy libuplinkc*.* files from $PROJECTROOT/node_modules/uplink-nodejs/ to /usr/lib
    • Windows
      • Set Path environment variable to libuplinkc*.* which is $PROJECTROOT/node_modules/uplink-nodejs
  • In node application, import the package and call functions
    const storj = require("uplink-nodejs");
    const libUplink = new storj.Uplink();
