Continuous Deployment with Amazon S3
Deploying to an Amazon S3 bucket is pretty straight-forward with CircleCI due to preinstalled support for Amazon’s awscli.
The easiest way to authenticate
awscli is to set the Access Key ID and
Secret Access Key in your Project’s Settings page on CircleCI. Here you can
see an image of what the page looks like and where the navigation link is for CircleCI
Create a new IAM user specifically for CircleCI. This is best
practice for security purposes. You can also authenticate with
other support methods such as environment variables, “profile” files, etc.
To deploy a project to S3, you can use the following command in the
aws s3 sync <path-to-files> s3://<bucket-URL> --delete
For example, here is a snippet of a
circle.yml file that shows how we deploy
#... deployment: prod: branch: master commands: - aws s3 sync jekyll/_site/docs s3://circle-production-static-site/docs/ --delete #...
