A php library for communicating with the copy cloud api

This library demos the binary part api, an efficient way to de-dupe and send/receive data with the Copy cloud, and the JSONRPC api used by the Copy agent, and Copy mobile devices, for doing advanced things with Copy.

This demo works with the OAUTH api, which you will need to setup at the Copy developer portal (

Please check out our changelog to see what has changed between versions.

The Basics

Connect to the cloud

// create a cloud api connection to Copy
$copy = new \Barracuda\Copy\API($consumerKey, $consumerSecret, $accessToken, $tokenSecret);

List items

// list items in the root
$items = $copy->listPath('/');

Uploading a file

// open a file to upload
$fh = fopen('/tmp/file', 'rb');

// upload the file in 1MB chunks
$parts = array();
while ($data = fread($fh, 1024 * 1024)) {
    $part = $copy->sendData($data);
    array_push($parts, $part);

// close the file

// finalize the file
$copy->createFile('/copy-file-path', $parts);

Downloading a file

// obtain a list of files and parts
$files = $copy->listPath('/copy-file-path', array("include_parts" => true));

// process each file
foreach ($files as $file) {
    $data = '';

    // enumerate the parts in the latest revision
    foreach ($file->revisions[0]->parts as $part) {
        $data .= $copy->getPart($part->fingerprint, $part->size);

Delete a file


Rename an object

$copy->rename('/source-copy-file-path', '/destination-copy-file-path');

Installing via Composer

The recommended way to install the Copy PHP API is through Composer.

# Install Composer
curl -sS | php

# Add Copy API as a dependency
php composer.phar require barracuda/copy

After installing, you need to require Composer's autoloader:

require 'vendor/autoload.php';

Running the tests

First install the dependencies for the library using Composer. See above for how to install Composer.

composer install

Then add connection info for your Copy account as environment variables:

export CONSUMER_KEY=<check the developer portal>
export CONSUMER_SECRET=<check the developer portal>
export ACCESS_TOKEN=<OAuth token>
export ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET=<OAuth secret>
