Nephele, the Greek cloud nymph, contains some basic utilities for working with cloud services. At the moment, the only implemented item is a library that will sync a local directory with an S3 bucket. This is still very much a work in progress, and functionality is extremely limited.
The Nephele cookbook for linux requires the build-essentials cookbook due to the fog gem.
Attributes are used to refer to an encrypted data bag that hold Amazon access information.
Adding the Nephele cookbook to your runlist will install the fog gem. From there, check out s3syncexample for details.
