A simple command line utility for generating time-sensitive, sharable urls for private s3 files

Project Description

s3url is a simple command line utility for generating time-sensitive, sharable urls for private s3 files.

### Examples

Generate a signed URL valid for 24 hours to download file/to/share.txt from the bucket named my-bucket:

$ s3url my-bucket/file/to/share.txt

Also accepts s3:// style URIs:

$ s3url s3://my-bucket/file/to/share.txt

Or http(s):// URIs (with the bucket as the subdomain or in the path):

$ s3url $ s3url

Specify the time until expiration (1 hour and 30 minutes from now):

$ s3url -e 1h30m my-bucket/file/to/share.txt

AWS credentials are loaded from environment variables by default. Export the variables AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY. To specify them at the command line, use:

$ s3url -k YourAccessKeyId:YourSecretAccessKey my-bucket/file/to/share.txt

### Installation

$ pip install s3url
