Get File meta data

From @jonmyates on Tue Sep 06 2016 13:38:33 GMT+0000 (UTC)


Having 'add’ed a file (an image of type jpg) using the add command, I’m struggling to find the command to get the meta data about it (name, IPFS location, etc).

When I perform either a GET or a CAT I just get the text version of the file back.

Ideally, having listed my files I’d like to get some data in them.

I’m using and API client (POSTMAN) to send the requests.

Can anyone please advise?

I asked a similar question, you can see it here :slight_smile:

Thanks Kevin.

So to get the meta-data on a file, the containing folder needs to be added?
