Backblaze B2 Node.js Library

npm version Build Status

This library uses promises, so all actions on a B2 instance return a promise in the following pattern

    b2.instanceFunction(arg1, arg2).then(
        successFn(response) { ... },
        errorFn(err) { ... }
    );

Status of project

See the CHANGELOG for a history of updates.

Contributing and Suggestions for Changes and Fixes

Contributions and questions are welcome. If you are looking for something to help with, please have a look at the ISSUES or add an issue if there is something you would like to see or fix.

Make sure you use the .editorconfig in your IDE/editor when writing code.

Pull Requests should include:

  • Updated example in README.md
  • Update existing tests, or add new tests to cover code changes

If you are adding tests, add these to /test/unit. Make sure the test is named fooTest.js and is located in a similar folder to the node module that is being tested.

Always run npm test before you commit.

Upgrading from 0.9.x to 1.0.x

For this update, we've switched the back end HTTP request library from request to axios as it has better Promise and progress support built in. However, there are a couple changes that will break your code and ruin your day. Here are the changes:

  • The Promise resolution has a different data structure. Where previously, the request response data was the root object in the promise resolution (res), this data now resides in res.data.
  • In v0.9.12, we added request progress reporting via the third parameter to then(). Because we are no longer using the same promise library, this functionality has been removed. However, progress reporting is still available by passing a callback function into the b2.method() that you're calling. See the documentation below for details.
  • In v0.9.x, b2.downloadFileById() accepted a fileId parameter as a String or Number. As of 1.0.0, the first parameter is now expected to be a plain Object of arguments.

Response Object

Each request returns an object with

status - int, html error Status

statusText

headers

config

request

data - actual returned data from backblaze, https://www.backblaze.com/b2/docs/calling.html

Basic Example

var B2 = require('backblaze-b2');
 
var b2 = new B2({
  accountId: '<accountId>',
  applicationKey: 'applicationKey'
});
 
async function GetBuckets() {
  try {
    await b2.authorize();
    var response = await b2.listBuckets()
    console.log(response.data)
  } catch (e){
    console.log('Error getting buckets:', e)
  }
}

Uploading Large Files

To upload large files, you need to split the file into parts (between 5MB and 5GB) and upload each part seperately

First, you initiate the large file upload to get the fileId

var response = await this.b2.startLargeFile({bucketId: bucketID,fileName: fileName })
var fileID = response.data.fileId

Then for each part you request an uploadUrl, and use the response to upload the part

var response = await this.b2.getUploadPartUrl({fileId: this.fileID})
 
var uploadURL = resp.data.uploadUrl
var authToken = resp.data.authorizationToken
 
response = await this.b2.uploadPart({
          partNumber: parNum,
          uploadUrl: uploadURL,
          uploadAuthToken: authToken,
          data: buf
        })
// status checks etc.

Then finish the uploadUrl

var response = await this.b2.finishLargeFile({
      fileId: this.fileID,
      partSha1Array: parts.map(function(buf) {return sha1(buf)})
    })

Usage

    var B2 = require('backblaze-b2');
 
    // All functions on the b2 instance return the response from the B2 API in the success callback
    // i.e. b2.foo(...).then(function(b2JsonResponse) {})
 
    // create b2 object instance
    var b2 = new B2({
        accountId: 'accountId',
        applicationKey: 'applicationKey'
    });
