Subject Re: Fwd: How to get URL of a blob after Uploading to swift
Date Sat, 24 Aug 2013 05:15:06 GMT
Yes, that's correct.  I'm writing a server app that exposes the cloud
container via webdav.  In this particular case, the client is an
in-browser webdav file browser written in javascript.  I do have
control of the js webdav client, but I was hoping to redirect the
browser client to a signed url in order to download the blob for a
webdav GET.  Alternatively, the webdav resource url could just be the
signed url.  Proxying through my server app also works, but it would
be preferable to download directly from the provider.

Eventually, there will be an applet or other webdav client to perform
the multi-part uploads for large files.  That client app would also
need to use the signed urls, I would imagine.

Am I going about this wrong?  Would you recommend a different approach?
