A Python library that allows you to interact with Amazon S3 Buckets as if they are your local filesystem.

Project description

s3monkey: Access your S3 buckets like they’re native files ========-=================================================

Platforms like Heroku don’t allow for FUSE filesystem usage, so I had to get a bit creative.

Introducing, s3monkey, a library that mocks out all standard Python library system file operations, allowing you to use already–written code to interface with Amazon S3.

All standard library file operation modules are patched when using the provided context manager, including os, io, & pathlib.


AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY are expected to be set:

$ AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=xxxxxxxxxxx

Basic usage:

from s3monkey import S3FS

with S3FS(bucket='', mount_point='/app/data') as fs:

    # Create a 'test' key on S3, with the contents of 'hello'.
    with open('/app/data/test', 'w') as f:

    # List the keys in the S3 bucket.
    # ['file1.txt', 'file2.txt', 'file2.txt', 'test', …]
