A Lot of Effort
Instantly deploy static HTML sites to S3 at the command line.
I created this out of frustration, after spending a lot of effort trying to find a PyPI package that did this without problems.
The full documentation is at http://alotofeffort.rtfd.org.
pip install alotofeffort
Configure Boto the standard way in ~/.boto:
[Credentials] aws_access_key_id = ... aws_secret_access_key = ...
Then use it to deploy a static HTML website to an S3 bucket:
$ alotofeffort www/ mybucket
- Uses standard Boto configuration.
- Prints the S3 endpoint URL after deploying.
- Auto-configures the bucket to be a website, with all files public.
- Only files that have changed get uploaded. Files are checked for changes by comparing the local and remote MD5 hashes of the files.
- Never auto-deletes. In fact, it doesn't delete files at all! (In the future, it will check if any files need to be deleted from S3, and prompt you before deleting anything.)
