An LWRP that can be used to fetch files from S3.
I created this LWRP to solve the chicken-and-egg problem of fetching files from S3 on the first Chef run on a newly provisioned machine. Ruby libraries that are installed on that first run are not available to Chef during the run, so I couldn't use a library like Fog to get what I needed from S3.
This LWRP has no dependencies beyond the Ruby standard library, so it can be used on the first run of Chef.
An Amazon Web Services account and something in S3 to fetch.
s3_file acts like other file resources. The only supported action is :create, which is the default.
`aws_access_key_id` - your AWS access key id.
`aws_secret_access_key` - your AWS secret access key.
`bucket` - the bucket to pull from.
`remote_path` - the S3 key to pull.
s3_file "/tmp/somefile" do remote_path "/my/s3/key" bucket "my-s3-bucket" aws_access_key_id "mykeyid" aws_aws_secret_access_key "mykey" action :create end
