Using AWS S3 Storage from Linux CLI

Start by installing aws-shell, then run the configure command to enter key and region information:

sudo apt install aws-shell
aws configure

To list files in a bucket called ‘mybucket’:

aws s3 ls s3://mybucket

To upload a single file:

aws s3 cp /tmp/myfile.txt s3://mybucket/

To upload all files in a directory with a certain extension:

aws s3 cp /tmp/ s3://mybucket/ --recursive --exclude '*' --include '*.txt'

To recursively upload contents of a directory:

aws s3 cp /tmp/mydir/ s3://mybucket/ --recursive

To delete a single file:

aws s3 rm s3://mybucket/myfile.text

To empty a bucket (delete all files, but keep bucket):

aws s3 rm s3://mybucket --recursive
