Rackspace Cloud Files support
Most of these examples use synchronous requests for brevity, you should normally use a queue or [request startAsynchronous] to perform these operations asynchronously (more info..).
An ASIHTTPRequest subclass that handles Rackspace Cloud authentication for you.
An ASICloudFilesRequest subclass that helps you retrieve info about your account and lists of containers. It also makes it easy to create and delete containers.
An ASICloudFilesRequest subclass that looks deeper into Cloud Files containers, providing directory listings, container info, and file uploads and downloads.
An ASICloudFilesRequest subclass that retrieves info on CDN-enabled containers and files and allows you to control CDN attributes on all of your Cloud Files containers.
GET an object
In this example, we'll get the object from Cloud Files that is stored at /container-name/path/to/the/object.
[ASICloudFilesRequest setUsername:@"my-username"]; [ASICloudFilesRequest setApiKey:@"my-api-key"]; [ASICloudFilesRequest authenticate]; ASICloudFilesObjectRequest *request = [ASICloudFilesObjectRequest getObjectRequestWithContainer:@"container-name" objectPath:@"/path/to/the/object"]; [request startSynchronous]; ASICloudFilesObject *object = [request object];
PUT an object
Since we have already authenticated, we don't need to do it again to upload a file.
NSData *data = [@"this is a test" dataUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]; ASICloudFilesObjectRequest *request = [ASICloudFilesObjectRequest putObjectRequestWithContainer:@"container-name" objectPath:@"my-file.txt" contentType:@"text/plain" objectData:data metadata:nil etag:nil]; [request startSynchronous];
DELETE an object
We won't set the access keys this time, because we've already set the shared ones.
ASICloudFilesObjectRequest *request = [ASICloudFilesObjectRequest deleteObjectRequestWithContainer:@"container-name" objectPath:@"my-file.txt"]; [request startSynchronous];
GET a list of objects
A list query is basically a GET request on a container. Cloud Files will return up to 10,000 objects in a single request. After that, another GET on the object is necessary to retrieve the fileʼs content.
ASICloudFilesObjectRequest *request = [ASICloudFilesObjectRequest listRequestWithContainer:@"ASICloudFilesTest"]; [request startSynchronous]; NSArray *objects = [request objects];
