Downloading Batch Images From S3

I know I know…

You’re afraid of the CLI, there’s not a good chrome extension and you can’t be bothered to boot up Firefox just for s3fox…

Dude, the CLI is so simps:

brew install awscli

aws configure

# 1. log into your aws console, click on "security and credentials" in the menu
# 2. access your IAM page, create a new user & group with access to your bucket
# 3. copy credentials to a safe spot
# AWS Secret Access Key [None]: wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY
# Default region name [None]: us-west-2
# Default output format [None]: ENTER

#check you have access
aws s3 ls bucket-name

#download a whole folder to a folder on your Desktop
aws s3 cp s3://bucket-name/folder1/ ~/Desktop/folder1 --recursive

# profit
