Simple REST API - uploading could not be any easier

Using the File Manager, create a new container for your project and then create an access key for that container (which can be IP address locked). Then simply HTTP PUT your files to our transit server using the access key as the destination folder, either from the command line or a shell script...

...or using your favourite scripting language...

  $access_key = "{access_key}";
  $filename   = "{filename}";
  $passphrase = "{passphrase}";
  $url = "".$access_key."/".$filename;

The source IP address of the last upload is displayed alongside the access key in the access key list. Copy the IP address, revoke the access key and then create a new access key locked to the IP address learned from the trial upload...
