AWS S3 allows redirects to occur directly from an S3 object. This gem automates configuring AWS S3 to redirect from one path to another.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install middleman-s3_redirect
You need to add the following code to your
activate :s3_redirect do |config| config.bucket = 'my.bucket.com' # The name of the S3 bucket you are targetting. This is globally unique. config.region = 'us-west-1' # The AWS region for your bucket. config.aws_access_key_id = 'AWS KEY ID' config.aws_secret_access_key = 'AWS SECRET KEY' config.after_build = false # We chain after the build step by default. This may not be your desired behavior... end
redirect method register a redirect:
redirect '/old/path', '/new/path'
You can then configure S3 to redirect these path by running
Providing AWS Credentials
There are a few ways to provide the AWS credentials for s3_redirect:
You can set the aws_access_key_id and aws_secret_access_key in the block that is passed to the activate method.
You can create a
.s3_sync at the root of your middleman project.
The credentials are passed in the YAML format. The keys match the
The .s3_sync file takes precedence to the configuration passed in the activate method.
.s3_sync file is included at the root of this repo.
You can also pass the credentials through environment variables. They map to the following values:
The environment is used when the credentials are not set in the activate
method or passed through the
.s3_sync configuration file.
A Debt of Gratitude
I used Middleman Sync as a template for building a Middleman extension. The code is well structured and easy to understand and it was easy to extend it to add my synchronization code. My gratitude goes to @karlfreeman and is work on Middleman sync.
