Peertube API upload file with space in name and path

hey !

I’m not a programmer but I would like top upload files to my peertube instance using the API. I’m using this example of the peertube doc.

## DEPENDENCIES: httpie, jq
# pip install httpie
USERNAME="<your_username>"
PASSWORD="<your_password>"
FILE_PATH="<your_file_path>"
CHANNEL_ID="<your_channel_id>"
NAME="<video_name>"

API_PATH="https://peertube2.cpy.re/api/v1"
## AUTH
client_id=$(http -b GET "$API_PATH/oauth-clients/local" | jq -r ".client_id")
client_secret=$(http -b GET "$API_PATH/oauth-clients/local" | jq -r ".client_secret")
token=$(http -b --form POST "$API_PATH/users/token" \
  client_id="$client_id" client_secret="$client_secret" grant_type=password response_type=code \
  username=$USERNAME \
  password=$PASSWORD \
  | jq -r ".access_token")
## VIDEO UPLOAD
http -b --form POST "$API_PATH/videos/upload" \
  videofile@$FILE_PATH \
  channelId=$CHANNEL_ID \
  name=$NAME \
  "Authorization:Bearer $token"

But I don’t find a way to give a path and a name with spaces (even using \). When I do, I have this error :

##with 
FILE_PATH="/example test.mp3"
## Or with
FILE_PATH=/example\ test.mp3

##I get
 http: error: argument REQUEST_ITEM: "test.mp3" is not a valid value

thx for your help :slight_smile:

I get it worked by adding " arround the variables in the httpie command like this :

http -b --form POST "$API_PATH/videos/upload" \
  videofile@"$FILE_PATH" \
  channelId=$CHANNEL_ID \
  name="$NAME" \
  "Authorization:Bearer $token"
