Question

Is there a reason to download from spaces via API rather than directly from the web?

I need to download files from my “Spaces” to generate a thumbnail.

Is there some reason i should use the API rather than just doing a normal http request to the public file?

Would it be faster or cost less?

Hello @skeddtemp,

You can download files from ‘Spaces’ either from the Cloud Control Panel or via API. There would not be any difference in the cost, and the speed would depend on the network you are using. You can check the following documentation to download Spaces from the Cloud Panel. https://docs.digitalocean.com/products/spaces/how-to/add-and-remove-files/#download-files

Hope this helps!
