[Tech Preview] Uplinkng (new enhanced uplink cli)

We are working on an uplink CLI redesign. For the time being it is called uplinkng. Once development is finished we will rename uplinkng into uplink. So it will replace the current uplink binaries at some point.

The long term goal is to implement some enhanced commands that are hard to implement without the redesign. For example a cp --recursive. I hope I can provide you the full list of improvements early next week.

The shot term goal is to offer the same functions as the old uplink. Already implemented should be:

Make bucket, List buckets, delete bucket
Delete bucket with force option
Upload/Download single object
Upload from stdin
Download to stdout
Delete single object
Delete single object with encrypted option
List objects
List objects recursively
List objects with encrypted option
List objects with expanded option
List pending objects
Setup with satellite, ApiKey and passphrase
Revoke an access
Import an access
Use named access
List all configured accesses
Get object metadata
Display binary version
Move object

New features:
Recursive copy
Recursive remove
Copy multiple objects/files in parallel
Remove objects/files in parallel

Not yet finished:

Upload single object in parallel
Download single object in parallel
Delete pending object
Share an access
Inspect access
Register access in gateway

Please keep in mind this is a beta version. Please don’t use it for any important file yet. If you are going to play around with some test files we would appreciate if you use uplinkng for that. Let us know if you notice any issues.

Binaries can be found here: Releases · storj/storj · GitHub
