AWS S3 Bucket Browser

Description

S3 Bucket Browser allows you to harness the power of Amazon Web Service’s S3 storage system to serve files to your visitors directly from S3’s servers, in a fast, easy to navigate method. Folders can be navigated between via clicking or via breadcrumbs, all without leaving or reloading the page. File searches are near instantaneous, and all download links are time limited (60 minutes), preventing your links from being widely shared or hotlinked.

Features:

  • All files served are hosted offsite on S3 storage. No worries about disk space!

  • Easy to use interface, as simple as clicking through folders.

  • Searching is extremely fast

  • Download links are signed and expire after 60 minutes, to prevent hot-linking

  • Only one API call, on initial page load.

  • Inserted via shortcode, so you can put on a password protected post or page if desired.

  • Mobile Friendly

Shortcode Use: [s3browse bucket=yourbucketname]

Notes Before Use:

  • You must have an AWS account, and know your access and secret keys, as well as your region.

  • You must have a bucket created with correct IAM set to access the bucket.

  • You must upload files via S3 prior to displaying, if you want them to show. (future version will likely allow upload as well)

  • You must have the correct CORS configuration set for your bucket:


    POST
    GET
    PUT
    3000
