Connect to S3 from your local Ubuntu file system

For Mac and Linux you can connect to s3 buckets from your local file navigator using  s3fs

Here are the commands you need for Ubuntu. Replace BUCKETNAME with the name of your S3 bucket.

cd ~/;

# for Debian (Ubuntu)
sudo apt-get install s3fs;

# for mac use  Brew install s3fs 

echo ACCESS_KEY:SECRET_KEY > ~/.passwd-s3fs;
# confirm entry was added
cat ~/.passwd-s3fs;
chmod 600 .passwd-s3fs;
mkdir ~/BUCKETNAME-s3-drive;

you can then navigate the s3 drive as a local drive
