Fromsmash Public API Docs

Fromsmash is a file-sharing service that allows users to easily share large files with others. The Fromsmash public API provides developers with a way to programmatically interact with the service, enabling them to integrate file-sharing capabilities into their applications. In this blog post, we'll explore the Fromsmash public API docs and provide some example code in JavaScript.

Example API Requests

Before we dive into the code, let's take a quick look at some example API requests. All Fromsmash API requests are sent via HTTPS to https://api.fromsmash.com/. Here are a few example requests:

Upload a File

To upload a file to Fromsmash, you must first generate a unique URL using the /upload_url endpoint. Then, you can use the provided URL to upload your file. Here's an example:

const fetch = require('node-fetch');
const fs = require('fs');

const filepath = '/path/to/my/file.pdf';
const filename = 'file.pdf';

fetch('https://api.fromsmash.com/upload_url', {
  method: 'POST',
  body: JSON.stringify({ name: filename })
})
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(data => {
    const upload_url = data.upload_url;
    const file = fs.createReadStream(filepath);

    fetch(upload_url, {
      method: 'PUT',
      body: file
    });
  });

List Files

To list all files uploaded to your Fromsmash account, use the /files endpoint. Here's an example:

const fetch = require('node-fetch');

fetch('https://api.fromsmash.com/files')
  .then(response => response.json())
  .then(data => console.log(data));

Download a File

To download a file from Fromsmash, use the /download endpoint. Here's an example:

const fetch = require('node-fetch');

const file_id = 'abc123';

fetch(`https://api.fromsmash.com/download/${file_id}`)
  .then(response => {
    if (response.ok) {
      const filename = response.headers.get('content-disposition').split('=')[1];
      const file = fs.createWriteStream(`/path/to/my/downloads/${filename}`);
      response.body.pipe(file);
    } else {
      console.log(`Error downloading file with id ${file_id}`);
    }
  });
