Installation
============

    gem install s3stream

Configuration
=============

Log into Amazon Web Services, and lookup your access key ID and secret.
https://aws-portal.amazon.com/gp/aws/developer/account/index.html?action=access-key

Here, I'll pretend that your access key is "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQ" and your secret
is "12345678901234567890abcde". Alright then...

    % echo 'AWSAccessKeyId=ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQ' > ~/.aws-credentials
    % echo 'AWSSecretKey=12345678901234567890abcde' >> ~/.aws-credentials
    % export AWS_CREDENTIAL_FILE=~/.aws-credentials

  - OR -

    % export AMAZON_ACCESS_KEY_ID='ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQ'
    % export AMAZON_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY='12345678901234567890abcde'

  - OR -

    % export AWS_ACCESS_KEY='ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQ'
    % export AWS_SECRET_KEY='12345678901234567890abcde'


Usage
=====

    % s3stream fetch mybucket myfile.dat > /tmp/myfile.dat
    % s3stream store mybucket myfile.dat < /tmp/myfile.dat

If you want to try uploading a bunch of data, but don't have any handy:

    % base64 /dev/urandom \
      | head -c $((10 * 1024 * 1024)) \
      | s3stream store mybucket 10mb.txt

And if you want to get fancy:

    % cat \
      <(s3stream fetch mybucket log0.log.gz | gunzip) \
      <(s3stream fetch mybucket log1.log.gz | gunzip) \
      | lzop -9 \
      | s3stream store mybucket combined.log.lzo


If you want to stream an upload in ruby:

    S3Stream::Upload.to(:s3object => s3object) do |stream|
      stream.write("abc")
      stream.write("123")
    end
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
