SAFE NFS file meta data

The NFS API docs have several functions related to file metadata which I’ve ignored because at some point I think it was stated these were not implemented.

@frabrunelle can you confirm that the following features are/are not implemented:

Get file metadata
Update file metadata

Also, the Create file endpoint has Content-Type in the POST header, and Get file is shown to return Content-Type in the response headers.

I’m not seeing any way to do this in safe-js, or to receive Content-Type (or other response header information) when doing safeNFS.getFile() which is what I want and really why I’m asking for clarification here.

I looked in the safe-js polyfill and no sign get/update file metadata, which is why I’m thinking this may all be not implemented yet in which case it would be good to note this in the API docs.

@joshuef If the NFS API does implement this, and in particular if Content-Type is available in the safeNFS.getFile() response it would be good to get access to it.

yes, these features are implemented in SAFE Launcher.

looks like update file metadata is called “rename file”:

EDIT: get file metadata has been implemented:


Yup, should be in there.

Good catch and thanks for opening the issue :smiley:

Coming to a safe-js near you soon!
