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.

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:

Basic Example

const B2 = require('backblaze-b2');
 
const b2 = new B2({
  accountId: 'applicationKeyId', // or accountId
  applicationKey: 'applicationKey' // or masterApplicationKey
});
 
async function GetBucket() {
  try {
    await b2.authorize(); // must authorize first
    let response = await b2.getBucket({bucketName: 'my-bucket'});
    console.log(response.data);
  } catch (err) {
    console.log('Error getting bucket:', err);
  }
}

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:

let response = await b2.startLargeFile({bucketId, fileName});
let fileId = response.data.fileId;

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

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

Then finish the uploadUrl:

let response = await b2.finishLargeFile({
    fileId,
    partSha1Array: parts.map(buf => sha1(buf))
})

Usage

const 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((b2JsonResponse) => {})
 
// create B2 object instance
const b2 = new B2({
    accountId: 'applicationKeyId', // or accountId
    applicationKey: 'applicationKey' // or masterApplicationKey
});
 
// authorize with provided credentials
b2.authorize();  // returns promise
