Fake S3

Introduction

Fake S3 is a lightweight server that responds to the same API of Amazon S3.

It is extremely useful for testing of S3 in a sandbox environment without actually making calls to Amazon, which not only requires a network connection, but also costs money with every use.

The goal of Fake S3 is to minimize runtime dependencies and be more of a development tool to test S3 calls in your code rather than a production server looking to duplicate S3 functionality.

Many commands are supported, including put, get, list, copy, and make bucket.

Installation

gem install fakes3

Running

To run the server, you just specify a root and a port.

fakes3 -r /mnt/fakes3_root -p 4567

Connecting to Fake S3

Take a look at the test cases to see client example usage. For now, Fake S3 is mainly tested with s3cmd, aws-s3 gem, and right_aws. There are plenty more libraries out there, and please do mention if other clients work or not.

Here is a running list of supported clients
