Pipe data straight to an S3 key of your choice
Pipe data straight to an S3 key of your choice.
This is a writeable stream that takes data and uploads it to Amazon S3 using its multipart upload API. This is ideal for handling generated content without needing to know the content's length ahead of time, and without resorting to file system hacks or buffering everything before the upload.
Internally, there's a fibonacci backoff handling errors, stopping the stray failed requests which tend to tear apart long-running S3 uploads.
The end result is that uploading files to S3 is as simple as this:
var fs = require'fs'var upload = require's3-write-stream'accessKeyId: processenvAWS_ACCESS_KEYsecretAccessKey: processenvAWS_SECRET_KEYBucket: 'photo-album'fscreateWriteStream__dirname + '/photo_001.jpg'pipeupload'images/photo_001.jpg'
s3-write-stream module with your AWS configuration. The
following properties are required:
opts.accessKeyId: your AWS access key id.
opts.secretAccessKey: your AWS secret access id.
It's also recommended that you include
opts.Bucket to define the default
S3 bucket you want to upload to.
Creates and returns a writeable stream, that you can pipe to upload to. You can either:
- pass the upload's
keyas a string to determine the location you want to upload to. By default, files uploaded this way will be public.
- pass in an
optsobject, which will pass those parameters on to the initial upload call via

so here and hence will need to use
