This gem adds local file caching for the AWS::S3 library. The best use case is if you use S3 to store the readonly/library copy of some object that you need occasionally transform (resize, retouch, etc).

Usage is simple, just add the gem to your bundle

require 'cache-aws-s3'

From there on, all (supported) calls to AWS::S3::S3Object will be first checked against the cache

S3FileCache.enable true
S3FileCache.cache_dir /var/s3filecache

AWS::S3::S3Object.value 'key', 'bucket'

AWS::S3::S3Object.cached_local? 'key', 'bucket'
AWS::S3::S3Object.perge_local! 'key', 'bucket'

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add spec for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
