os²

OpenStack Object Storage wrapper for Node.js

circle.ci badge

os² is a wrapper for the OpenStack Object Storage API v1. Use it to communicate with an Object Storage via it's REST api without managing the HTTP requests.

Features

  • Abstractions to write and read data from an Object Storage using Node.js streams.
  • Authentication to the OpenStack Object Storage using the TempAuth method. (No production, contributions are welcome)
  • Asynchronous communication using ES6 Promise
  • Support for Large Objects

Getting started

Installation

Installing globally from the npm package manager:

npm install os2 --global

Or add os² as a dependency to a node.js project using the package.json file:

"dependencies"{
  "os2": "0.0.1"
}

and then update the project's dependencies

npm install

Import

Import os² components as any Node.js package. For example, all os² components at once :

const os2 = require('os2');

Or, to import os² components separately:

// pick only what you need, lol
const { Store, Account, Container, Segment, DynamicLargeObject, StaticLargeObject } = require('os2');

Example

// First, create a Store to connect to
let store = new Store('http://example.openstackobjectstorage:8080/');
    
// Then, make an account, give it the store and the credentials
let account = new Account(store, 'username', 'password');
    
// Authenticate with tempAuth
account.connect().then(function() {
    
        //We can now create containers using the connected account
        let container = new Container(account, 'example_container');
        
        //Perform the container creation on the object storage API
        container.create().then(function() {
    
            //Create an object inside the container
            let obj = new Segment(container, 'example_segment');
                
            //Put the content of a file into: example_container/example_segment
            obj.createFromDisk('./path/to/my/file.txt').then(function(ok) {
               // Yeah the file is created ! 
            });
        });
    });

Account

Your service provider creates your account and you own all resources in that account. The account defines a namespace for containers. In the OpenStack environment, account is synonymous with a project or tenant.
