Mar 14, 2018 A Handy S3 CLI
Do you ever get annoyed that you have to install Python, pip, and then AWS CLI in order to simply access your S3 storage to manage your buckets?
I know once in a while, I do.
brew tap jhunt/hacks brew install s3
You can run basic
s3 commands to see all the commands now.
General usage: s3 COMMAND [OPTIONS...] acls List known ACLs and their purposes / access rules. commands List known sub-commands of this s3 client. list-buckets List all S3 buckets owned by you. create-bucket Create a new bucket. delete-bucket Delete an empty bucket. put Upload a new file to S3. get Download a file from S3. cat Print the contents of a file in S3. url Print the HTTPS URL for a file in S3. rm Delete file from a bucket. ls List the files in a bucket. chacl Change the ACL on a bucket or a file. lsacl List the ACL on a bucket or a file.
To access your Amazon S3, you can set up the following environment variables.
S3_AKI: Your Access Key ID. S3_KEY: Your secret access key. S3_REGION: The name of the AWS region.
If you are looking for more complicated operations in your Amazon S3 and other cloud storage service providers that use the S3 protocol, such as Google Cloud Storage or DreamHost DreamObjects, check s3cmd out.
