Async client for aws services using botocore and aiohttp

Project description

Async client for amazon services using botocore and aiohttp/asyncio.

Main purpose of this library to support amazon s3 api, but other services should work (may be with minor fixes). For now we have tested only upload/download api for s3, other users report that SQS and Dynamo services work also. More tests coming soon.


$ pip install aiobotocore

Basic Example

import asyncio
import aiobotocore


async def go(loop):
    bucket = 'dataintake'
    filename = 'dummy.bin'
    folder = 'aiobotocore'
    key = '{}/{}'.format(folder, filename)

    session = aiobotocore.get_session(loop=loop)
    async with session.create_client('s3', region_name='us-west-2',
                                   aws_access_key_id=AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID) as client:
        # upload object to amazon s3
        data = b'\x01'*1024
        resp = await client.put_object(Bucket=bucket,

        # getting s3 object properties of file we just uploaded
        resp = await client.get_object_acl(Bucket=bucket, Key=key)

        # delete object from s3
        resp = await client.delete_object(Bucket=bucket, Key=key)

        # list s3 objects using paginator
        paginator = client.get_paginator('list_objects')
        async for result in paginator.paginate(Bucket=bucket, Prefix=folder):
            for c in result.get('Contents', []):

        # get object from s3
        response = await client.get_object(Bucket=bucket, key=key)
        # this will ensure the connection is correctly re-used/closed
        async with response['Body'] as stream:
            bytes = await

loop = asyncio.get_event_loop()

Run Tests

Make sure you have development requirements installed and your amazon key and secret accessible via environment variables:

$ cd aiobotocore
$ export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=xxx
$ pip install -Ur requirements-dev.txt

Execute tests suite:

$ py.test -v tests
