Expiring Amazon S3 Links by Fat Panda

A shortcode for generating temporary links to things stored privately on Amazon S3.

Everyone knows that Amazon S3 is the best place to host static files. But how do you use S3 to distribute access-restricted content - that eBook that's for registered members only, or your band's latest album?

Fat Panda to the rescue!

With this plugin, you can easily generate temporary links to privately-hosted content on S3. It couldn't be easier:

[s3 bucket="your-S3-bucket" path="/path/to/restricted/file.whatever"]Download![/s3]

The link generated will only be usable for five minutes, after which users who click on it will simply see Amazon's standard 404 page.

You can control the expiration time using the expires attribute; this link will expire after one hour:

[s3 bucket="your-S3-bucket" path="/path/to/file" expires="60"]Download![/s3]
