TUS protocol for resumable file uploads via HTTP in swipl (see: TUS)
This package implements both the server handlers and a simple client.
The package implements the core protocol along with four extensions:
Options for the server can be set with the set_tus_options/1 predicate which has the following options:
tus_storage_path(Path): The Path contains the location of the storage folder to be used for uploads. If not set it will default to a temporary directory.
tus_max_size(Size): The Size is the maximum allowable upload size in bytes. Defaults to
tus_client_chunk_size(Size): The Size is the size of chunks to be uploaded. The default is
tus_expiry_seconds(Seconds): The Seconds is the total number of seconds before the resource expires. This will allow resources which are not fully uploaded to be removed.
For instance, to set a larger client chunk size one can call:
To use the TUS server with the HTTP library in swipl you can simply
tus_dispatch call to your http_handler from a chosen endpoint
:- http_handler(root(files), tus_dispatch, [ methods([options,head,post,patch,delete]), prefix ]).
In order to determine the location of a given resource when passed the
resource URL in other contexts you can use the utility predicate
tus_uri_resource(URI, Resource) together with
tus_resource_path(Resource, Resource_Path). In this way once a
client has uploaded a resource it can be referred to in client-server
communications, and be moved, modified or manipulated by server code.
The server does not manage authorization, but it is possible to use
authorization to provide isolation of user data by providing the
tus_dispatch/2 predicate with options which include
You can use any authorization system you'd like (basic, JWT etc.) to guard access to this domain token and the domain token will be used to ensure isolation.
The following code shows how you might add a handler which carries with it a domain after authorization. There is a more complete example in the tests in prolog/tus.pl.
:- meta_predicate auth_wrapper(2,?). auth_wrapper(Goal,Request) :- authorize(Request, Domain), call(Goal, [domain(Domain)], Request). spawn_auth_server(URL, Port) :- random_between(49152, 65535, Port), http_server(http_dispatch, [port(Port), workers(1)]), http_handler(root(files), auth_wrapper(tus_dispatch), [ methods([options,head,post,patch,delete]), prefix ]), format(atom(URL), 'http://127.0.0.1:~d/files', [Port]).
The client invocation requires only the endpoint of interest and a file and can be invoked thus:
tus_upload(Example, URL, Resource)
The Resource variable gives back a resource handle that the server can use to refer to the resource in subsequent communication.
The remaining extensions would be desirable:
