Deploy static websites to Amazon S3 easily.

Project Description


This is a little CLI utility that helps deploying static websites to Amazon S3.


$> pip install presstatic

$> pstatic -h

usage: presstatic [-h] [-http HOST:PORT] [-s3 bucket] directory

positional arguments:
        directory        directory containing the static website.

optional arguments:
        -h, --help       show this help message and exit
        -http HOST:PORT  creates an HTTP Server with <directory> as root dir.
        -s3 bucket       deploy on the specified S3 bucket.
  • upload your website:
$> export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=<Your Key id>

$> export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=<Your Secret>

$> pstatic -s3 ~/projects/
  • preview your website while you develop it:

    Any change in files/directories will trigger the builder. Because of this and other reasons this http server is intended for development only.

$> pstatic -http ~/projects/


We use the awesome Jinja template engine.


We are using webassets for asset bundling.

If you intend to use assets you need to add a configuration file (YAML) to your root project. Please see the webassets docs to see for more details.

Here’s an example:

url: /static
debug: True
        filters: yui_css
        output: static/css/packed.css
            - static/css/style.css
            - static/css/jquery.fancybox.css
        filters: yui_js
        output: static/js/packed.js
            - static/js/jquery-latest.min.js
            - static/js/jquery.fancybox.pack.js
            - static/js/app.js
