How to use AWS SDK for Go with Minio Server Gitter

aws-sdk-go is the official AWS SDK for the Go programming language. In this recipe we will learn how to use aws-sdk-go with Minio server.

1. Prerequisites

Install Minio Server from here.

2. Installation

Install aws-sdk-go from AWS SDK for Go official docs here

3. Example

Please replace Endpoint,Credentials, Bucket with your local setup in this example.go file.

Example below shows putObject and getObject operations on Minio server using aws-sdk-go.

package main

import (
    "fmt"
    "os"
    "strings"

    "github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/aws"
    "github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/aws/credentials"
    "github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/service/s3/s3manager"
    "github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/aws/session"
    "github.com/aws/aws-sdk-go/service/s3"
)

func main() {
    bucket := aws.String("newbucket")
    key := aws.String("testobject")

    // Configure to use Minio Server
    s3Config := &aws.Config{
        Credentials:      credentials.NewStaticCredentials("YOUR-ACCESSKEYID", "YOUR-SECRETACCESSKEY", ""),
        Endpoint:         aws.String("http://localhost:9000"),
        Region:           aws.String("us-east-1"),
        DisableSSL:       aws.Bool(true),
        S3ForcePathStyle: aws.Bool(true),
    }
    newSession := session.New(s3Config)

    s3Client := s3.New(newSession)

    cparams := &s3.CreateBucketInput{
        Bucket: bucket, // Required
    }

    // Create a new bucket using the CreateBucket call.
    _, err := s3Client.CreateBucket(cparams)
    if err != nil {
        // Message from an error.
        fmt.Println(err.Error())
        return
    }

    // Upload a new object "testobject" with the string "Hello World!" to our "newbucket".
    _, err = s3Client.PutObject(&s3.PutObjectInput{
        Body:   strings.NewReader("Hello from Minio!!"),
        Bucket: bucket,
        Key:    key,
    })
    if err != nil {
        fmt.Printf("Failed to upload data to %s/%s, %s\n", *bucket, *key, err.Error())
        return
    }
    fmt.Printf("Successfully created bucket %s and uploaded data with key %s\n", *bucket, *key)

    // Retrieve our "testobject" from our "newbucket" and store it locally in "testobject_local".
    file, err := os.Create("testobject_local")
    if err != nil {
        fmt.Println("Failed to create file", err)
        return
    }
    defer file.Close()

    downloader := s3manager.NewDownloader(newSession)
    numBytes, err := downloader.Download(file,
    &s3.GetObjectInput{
        Bucket: bucket,
        Key:    key,
    })
    if err != nil {
        fmt.Println("Failed to download file", err)
        return
    }
    fmt.Println("Downloaded file", file.Name(), numBytes, "bytes")
}

4. Run the Program

go run example.go
Successfully created bucket newbucket and uploaded data with key testobject
Downloaded file testobject_local 18 bytes
