S3 website deployment tool

Project description

Build Status PyPI badge Test coverage

This is a deployment tool for uploading static websites to S3. If CloudFront is used for hosting the website, the uploaded files can be automatically invalidated in the CloudFront distribution. A prefix tree is used to minimize the number of invalidations since only a limited number of free invalidations are available per month.

The configuration is stored in a YAML file like this:

site: _site
cloudfront_distribution_id: XXXXXXXXXXX

  - match: "/assets/*"
    maxage: 30 days

  - match_regexp: '^assets/image-\d{3}-.*\.png$'
    maxage: 90 days

  - match: "/css/*"
    maxage: 30 days

  - match: "*"
    maxage: 1 hour

The site is the directory of the static website relative to the location of the configuration file. For example, Jekyll will generate the static site in the _site directory as specified above. If you save the configuration file as .s3_website.yaml you can simply run s3-deploy-website from the same directory:

$ cd jekyll-site/
$ ls .s3_website.yaml
$ s3-deploy-website


AWS credentials can be provided through the environment variables AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY.

$ s3-deploy-website

They can also be provided through the various configuration files that boto reads.

Configuration file

The directory of the static content to be uploaded (relative to the location of the configuration file (e.g. _site for Jekyll sites).
The name of the S3 bucket to upload the files to. You have to allow the actions s3:GetObject, s3:PutObject, s3:DeleteObject and s3:ListBucket on the bucket and the keys e.g. and*.
An optional boolean to indicate whether the files should be uploaded to reduced redundancy storage.
The CloudFront distribution to invalidate after uploading new files. Only files that were changed will be invalidated. You have to allow the action cloudfront:CreateInvalidation.
A list of rules to determine the cache configuration of the uploaded files. The match key specifies a pattern that the rule applies to. This uses glob-style matching (with * and ?). Matching can also be performed with regular expressions by using match_regexp. Only the first rule to match a given key will be used. The maxage key specifies the time to cache the file. The value should be either a number of seconds or a string like 30 days, 5 minutes, 30 seconds, etc.
(Optional) For setting custom endpoint for boto3: Boto3 Session reference

Similar software

The configuration in .s3_website.yaml was inspired by s3_website although the options supported by s3_website are slightly different.
