knox

Node Amazon S3 Client.

Features

  • Not outdated :), developed for node 0.2.x
  • RESTful api (client.get(), client.put(), etc)
  • Uses node's crypto library (fast!, the others used native js)
  • Very node-like low-level request api via http.Client
  • Highly documented

Authors

Examples

The following examples demonstrate some capabilities of knox and the s3 REST API. First things first, create an s3 client:

var client = knox.createClient({
    key: '<api-key-here>'
  , secret: '<secret-here>'
  , bucket: 'learnboost'
});

By default knox will send all requests to the global endpoint (bucket.s3.amazonaws.com). This works regardless of the region where the bucket is. But if you want to manually set the endpoint (for performance reasons) you can do it with the endpoint option.

PUT

Below we do several things, first we read Readme.md into memory, and initialize a client request via client.put(), passing the destination filename as the first parameter (/test/Readme.md), and some headers. Then we listen for the response event, just as we would for any http.Client request, if we have a 200 response, great! output the destination url to stdout.

fs.readFile('Readme.md', function(err, buf){
  var req = client.put('/test/Readme.md', {
      'Content-Length': buf.length
    , 'Content-Type': 'text/plain'
  });
  req.on('response', function(res){
    if (200 == res.statusCode) {
      console.log('saved to %s', req.url);
    }
  });
  req.end(buf);
});

By default the x-amz-acl header is public-read, meaning anyone can GET the file. To alter this simply pass this header to the client request method. Note that the field name MUST be lowercase, do not use 'X-Amz-Acl' etc, as this will currently result in duplicate headers (although different case).

client.put('/test/Readme.md', { 'x-amz-acl': 'private' });

Each HTTP verb has an alternate method with the "File" suffix, for example put() also has a higher level method named putFile(), accepting a src filename and performs the dirty work shown above for you. Here is an example usage:

client.putFile('my.json', '/user.json', function(err, res){
  // Logic
}); 

Another alternative is to stream via Client#putStream(), for example:

var stream = fs.createReadStream('data.json');
client.putStream(stream, '/some-data.json', function(err, res){
  // Logic
});

An example of moving a file:

client.put('0/0/0.png', {
    'Content-Type': 'image/jpg',
    'Content-Length': '0',
    'x-amz-copy-source': '/test-tiles/0/0/0.png',
    'x-amz-metadata-directive': 'REPLACE'
}).on('response', function(res) {
  // Logic
}).end();

GET

Below is an example GET request on the file we just shoved at s3, and simply outputs the response status code, headers, and body.

client.get('/test/Readme.md').on('response', function(res){
  console.log(res.statusCode);
  console.log(res.headers);
  res.setEncoding('utf8');
  res.on('data', function(chunk){
    console.log(chunk);
  });
}).end();

DELETE

Delete our file:

client.del('/test/Readme.md').on('response', function(res){
  console.log(res.statusCode);
  console.log(res.headers);
}).end();

Likewise we also have client.deleteFile() as a more concise (yet less flexible) solution:

client.deleteFile('/test/Readme.md', function(err, res){
  // Logic
});

Running Tests

To run the test suite you must first have an S3 account, and create a file named ./auth, which contains your credentials as json, for example:

{"key":"<api-key-here>",
 "secret":"<secret-here>",
 "bucket":"<your-bucket-name>"}

Then simply execute:

$ make test
