Gevent-based, multithreaded tool for interacting with OpenStack Swift and Rackspace Cloud Files

Project description

OpenStack Swift threaded operation utility for Uploading, Downloading and Deleting


posthaste currently requires gevent, which in turn requires greenlet and libevent.

The “new” Gevent (as of this writing, 1.0 RC 2) alleviates the libevent dependency and thus simplifies the process of using tool. More information can be found on Github.


usage: posthaste [-h] [--version] -c CONTAINER [-r REGION] [--internal]
                 [-t THREADS] [-u USERNAME] [-p PASSWORD]
                 [-i {rackspace,keystone}] [-a AUTH_URL] [-v]
                 {delete,upload,download} ...
