A bare bones package for uploading to and downloading from AWS S3 from within Python 3.3+

Project description


Work on this package has ceased. Development efforts have been moved to openS3.


To install the latest stable version of py3s3:

$ pip install py3s3

To install the latest development version:

$ git clone
$ cd py3s3
$ python install


>>> file_name = '/testdir/test.txt'
>>> file = S3ContentFile("My file's content", file_name, mimetype='')
>>> storage = S3Storage('file/name/prefix', 'my_bucket', AWS_ACCESS_KEY, AWS_SECRET_KEY)
>>> storage._save(file_name, file)
>>> new_file = storage._open(file_name)
>>> print(new_file.content)
My file's content


Before you can run the test suite, you will need to set the following environment variables:

export AWS_S3_BUCKET='<bucket name>'
export AWS_S3_ACCESS_KEY='<access key>'
export AWS_S3_SECRET_KEY='<secret key>'

Once the environment variables have been set, the test suite can be run with:

python test
