S3Cmd Modifications - Monday

This week I'm going to work on one of the pain points I ran into during the zip code project. Specifically s3cmd lacks a few features that would be nice to have. After completion I'll see if the project owners are interested in integrating my changes back into the original product.

Project Summary: Modify the s3cmd project to support new features and expand on old ones. Contribute modifications back to the community.

  • Cloudfront Default Root Object Support
  • Parralel Uploads and Downloads
  • Better support for very large buckets and files
  • Automatic file splitting and joining of large files (> 2Gb)
  • s3sync local caching

If There's Time
  • Look at the s3fuse project as well as s3cmd and see if that could be worked on.
