Up2Share Resumable File Upload with Python: Your Ultimate Guide


Uploading large files can be challenging, especially if you’re dealing with slow or unreliable internet connections. But worry not, because there’s a solution: resumable file uploads. In this guide, we’ll show you how to use the u2s-sdk to perform resumable file uploads to Up2Share, a file-sharing platform, using Python. This method allows you to upload even large files with ease.


Step 1: Prerequisites

Before you start, make sure you have the following in place:

  • Python (3.6 or later) installed on your system.
  • Your Up2Share API key (or an OAuth token), which you can obtain from your Up2Share account.

Step 2: Install the u2s_sdk Library

Start by installing the u2s-sdk library from PyPI, the Python Package Index. You can do this by running the following command in your terminal:

pip install u2s-sdk

This command will download and install the library, making it readily available for your Python projects.

Step 3: Include u2s_sdk in Your Project

Include the u2s-sdk in your Python project with the following code:

from u2s_sdk.handler import ResumableUploadHandler
from u2s_sdk.client import ApiClient

Step 4: Create an API Client

Create an Up2Share ApiClient instance by providing your API key and the base URL. Replace 'your_api_key' with your actual API key:

api_key = 'your_api_key'
api_client = ApiClient('', api_key=api_key, timeout=30)

Step 5: Initialize the Resumable Upload Handler

Initialize the ResumableUploadHandler using the ApiClient:

handler = ResumableUploadHandler(api_client)

Step 6: Specify the File and Chunk Size

Specify the file you want to upload, the chunk size, and open the file:

file_name = 'your_file.mp4'
file_path = 'path/to/your/file/your_file.mp4'
chunk_size = 1048576  # 1 MB

with open(file_path, 'rb') as file:
   handler.simulate_chunk_upload(file, chunk_size, filename=file_name)

Step 7: Save and Run Your Script

Save your Python script and run it. The script will upload the specified file to Up2Share using resumable uploads with the given chunk size.


With this guide, you can now effortlessly upload large files to Up2Share using resumable uploads and Python. This method is especially useful when dealing with slow or unreliable internet connections. Feel free to customize the provided code to meet your specific requirements and integrate it into your Python applications for seamless file uploads.

By following these steps, you can perform resumable file uploads to Up2Share with ease, ensuring a reliable and efficient process for handling large files. Happy uploading!
