This topic describes how to use OSS SDK for C to complete routine operations such as bucket creation, object upload, and object download.

Demo projects

  • Linux demo

    Linux-based demo project: aliyun-oss-c-sdk-demo.tar.gz.

    1. Download and extract the demo project.
    2. When you install oss-c-sdk-demo-specified-installation, you must specify the installation directory: **/home/your/oss/csdk**. You do not need to specify installation directories for other demo projects because other demo projects are automatically installed based on OSS SDK for C and other dependent third-party libraries.
    3. Replace OSS_ENDPOINT, ACCESS_KEY_ID, ACCESS_KEY_SECRET, and BUCKET_NAME in the demo with valid values. If OSS SDK for C and the dynamic libraries of the dependent libraries are not in the system directory, use LD_LIBRARY_PATH to specify the directory of OSS SDK for C and the dynamic libraries of the dependent libraries.
    4. Go to the oss-c-sdk-demo-xxx directory. Run make to compile the demo project. Run ./main to run the executable program. To re-compile the project, run make clean.

    For more information about the Linux-based demo project, see Use Alibaba Cloud OSS SDK for C in Linux.

  • Windows demo

    Windows-based demo project: aliyun-oss-c-sdk-sample.zip. For more information about the Windows-based demo project, visit GitHub.

    1. Download and extract the demo project.
    2. Use Visual Studio to open the demo project, and then replace the following parameters in the oss_config.c file to valid values: OSS_ENDPOINT, ACCESS_KEY_ID, ACCESS_KEY_SECRET, BUCKET_NAME, OBJECT_NAME, MULTIPART_UPLOAD_FILE_PATH, and DIR_NAME. Compile and run the project. You can develop your own project based on the demo project.
      Note For more information about how to use Visual Studio, see Use Alibaba Cloud OSS SDK for C in Windows.

Create a bucket

The following code provides an example on how to create a bucket:

#include "oss_api.h"
#include "aos_http_io.h"
/* Specify the endpoint of the region in which the bucket is located. For example, if the bucket is located in the China (Hangzhou) region, set the endpoint to https://oss-cn-hangzhou.aliyuncs.com. */
const char *endpoint = "yourEndpoint";
/* The AccessKey pair of an Alibaba Cloud account has permissions on all API operations. Using these credentials to perform operations in OSS is a high-risk operation. We recommend that you use a RAM user to call API operations or perform routine O&M. To create a RAM user, log on to the RAM console. */
const char *access_key_id = "yourAccessKeyId";
const char *access_key_secret = "yourAccessKeySecret";
/* Specify the bucket name. Example: examplebucket. */

    /* Configure network parameters such as the timeout period. */
    options->ctl = aos_http_controller_create(options->pool, 0);
}
int main(int argc, char *argv[])

The following code provides an example on how to upload objects to OSS by using stream upload:
