Uploadcare migration tool
Migro helps you migrate to Uploadcare from other cloud file management services like Filestack, Cloudinary, etc. Currently, we support migrating from Filestack, but you can migrate from other services too: you’ll just need to provide your file URLs for import.
This utility requires Python version 3.5.3 or later.
In order to install migro, simply run:
$ pip install uploadcare-migro
$ migro <PUBLIC_KEY> <INPUT_FILE>
<PUBLIC_KEY> — Your Uploadcare project public key.
<INPUT_FILE> — A text file containing a list of file URLs to be uploaded to your Uploadcare project.
-v, --version Show utility version and quit. -h, --help Show this help and quit. -o, --output_file PATH Path to a Migro output file. [default: migro_result.txt] --upload_base TEXT Base URL for uploads. [default: https://upload.uploadcare.com/] --from_url_timeout FLOAT Maximum number of seconds for uploading a single file via `from_url`. If this threshold gets exceeded, a file is considered not loaded. Increase this timeout when expecting to get larger files via `from_url`. [default: 30] --max_uploads INTEGER Maximum number of upload requests running in 'parallel'. [default: 20] --check_interval FLOAT Number of seconds in between status check requests.
Output file format
The output file format is quite simple. For each input file URL or Filestack file handle, there are 3 columns divided by the t symbol (tab).
The first column holds input file URL or Filestack handle itself, second column — upload operation status: success or fail, third column — output Uploadcare URL or error description.
For instance, you’re willing to migrate the three following files to Uploadcare where the first two are presented as URLs and the third one as Filestack file handle. Also, that’s how your input text file will then be structured:
https://cdn.filestackcontent.com/YBLVVdUpRqC4nOynxDd8 https://www.facebook.com/rsrc.php/v3/y7/r/dTQOHZm7Z-3.svg uNWvPRXJQmO49MJbPZn9
That’s what you get in your Migro output file for those input entries:
https://cdn.filestackcontent.com/YBLVVdUpRqC4nOynxDd8 success https://ucarecdn.com/d8f8de4b-f92e-41a0-b7f9-28fd4baad9ae/ https://www.facebook.com/rsrc.php/v3/y7/r/dTQOHZm7Z-3.svg success https://ucarecdn.com/4a03f3d4-2bd3-456e-89a5-008190980248/ https://cdn.filestackcontent.com/uNWvPRXJQmO49MJbPZn9 fail Uploading of these files types is not allowed on your current plan.
How migration works
The migration itself is fairly simple: you provide a list of file URLs or Filestack file handlers, and those files get uploaded to your Uploadcare project. That’s it. Migro does not download any files. It makes use of the Uploading API. Specifically, it utilizes the From URL method.
As a result, you’ll get a listing of all the uploaded files. For every processed file, you’re also getting its status and errors, in case there were any.
Here’s how you run the utility:
$ migro 9a598e2a47fe961ea412 fileslist.txt --output_file /tmp/migro-result.txt
And that’s what you get:
Upload progress: 100%|████████████████████████████████████████████████| 6/6 [00:03<00:00, 1.74s/file] All files have been processed, output URLs were written to: /tmp/migro-result.txt
Note for windows users
Currently there is an issue with program termination by CTRL+C on Windows, so program can no be terminated correctly by this way.
This is a platform dependent python programming language issue.
You can use our libs to migrate your files from any source.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
