Notice: Over the next few months, we're reorganizing the App Engine documentation site to make it easier to find content and better align with the rest of Google Cloud products. The same content will be available, but the navigation will now match the rest of the Cloud products.

Go 1.16 is now generally available.

Package (v2.0.1)

Package blobstore provides a client for App Engine's persistent blob storage service.


func BlobKeyForFile

func BlobKeyForFile(c context.Context, filename string) (appengine.BlobKey, error)

BlobKeyForFile returns a BlobKey for a Google Storage file. The filename should be of the form "/gs/bucket_name/object_name".

func Delete

func Delete(c context.Context, blobKey appengine.BlobKey) error

Delete deletes a blob.

func DeleteMulti

func DeleteMulti(c context.Context, blobKey []appengine.BlobKey) error

DeleteMulti deletes multiple blobs.

func ParseUpload

func ParseUpload(req *http.Request) (blobs map[string][]*BlobInfo, other url.Values, err error)

ParseUpload parses the synthetic POST request that your app gets from App Engine after a user's successful upload of blobs. Given the request, ParseUpload returns a map of the blobs received (keyed by HTML form element name) and other non-blob POST parameters.

func Send

func Send(response http.ResponseWriter, blobKey appengine.BlobKey)

Send sets the headers on response to instruct App Engine to send a blob as the response body. This is more efficient than reading and writing it out manually and isn't subject to normal response size limits.

func UploadURL

func UploadURL(c context.Context, successPath string, opts *UploadURLOptions) (*url.URL, error)

UploadURL creates an upload URL for the form that the user will fill out, passing the application path to load when the POST of the form is completed. These URLs expire and should not be reused. The opts parameter may be nil.


type BlobInfo struct {
	BlobKey      appengine.BlobKey
	ContentType  string    `datastore:"content_type"`
	CreationTime time.Time `datastore:"creation"`
	Filename     string    `datastore:"filename"`
	Size         int64     `datastore:"size"`
	MD5          string    `datastore:"md5_hash"`

	// ObjectName is the Google Cloud Storage name for this blob.
	ObjectName string `datastore:"gs_object_name"`

BlobInfo is the blob metadata that is stored in the datastore. Filename may be empty.

func Stat

func Stat(c context.Context, blobKey appengine.BlobKey) (*BlobInfo, error)

Stat returns the BlobInfo for a provided blobKey. If no blob was found for that key, Stat returns datastore.ErrNoSuchEntity.


type Reader interface {

Reader is a blob reader.

func NewReader

func NewReader(c context.Context, blobKey appengine.BlobKey) Reader

NewReader returns a reader for a blob. It always succeeds; if the blob does not exist then an error will be reported upon first read.


type UploadURLOptions struct {
	MaxUploadBytes        int64 // optional
	MaxUploadBytesPerBlob int64 // optional

	// StorageBucket specifies the Google Cloud Storage bucket in which
	// to store the blob.
	// This is required if you use Cloud Storage instead of Blobstore.
	// Your application must have permission to write to the bucket.
	// You may optionally specify a bucket name and path in the format
	// "bucket_name/path", in which case the included path will be the
	// prefix of the uploaded object's name.
	StorageBucket string

UploadURLOptions are the options to create an upload URL.
