Object Storage Python SDK


The replit-object-storage package simplifies working with Object Storage by providing a Python client library, offering a fast and efficient way to get started with a Python application using Object Storage. While it's possible to use Object Storage via the Google Python Client for Cloud Storage or the Google Cloud Storage JSON API, the Replit client library simplifies building applications with Object Storage by eliminating the need for custom authentication logic and Bucket configuration. This documentation helps you get started with using the Object Storage Python SDK effectively.
