Support for calling the S3 Rest API via spray-client

Note: This library in the early stages of development and lacking functionality


s3-spray adds support to spray for calling the S3 Rest API. It provides a S3 Actor that accepts messages such as ListObjects and returns messages such as ListBucketResult. Alternatively this library provides the individual spray-client components that allow you to manually build your own requests such as S3RequestBuilding for signing requests and S3Unmarshallers for parsing responses.

For SBT add the dependency "com.netaporter" %% "s3-spray" % "0.0.11"

Using the S3 Actor

Instantiate the S3 Actor with your S3 access key ID and secret access key like so:

val s3 = context.actorOf(Props(classOf[S3], IO(Http), accessKeyId, secretAccessKey))

You can send the S3 Actor the following messages:

s3 ! PutBucket("bucket-name")
// Expect a response of PutBucketSuccess

s3 ! GetBucket("bucket-name")
// Expect a response of ListBucketResult

s3 ! DeleteBucket("bucket-name")
// Expect a response of DeleteBucketSuccess

Using the S3 Request Builders

If you prefer not to use the S3 actor and would like to manually build the HttpRequests you send to S3, you can either import or mixin S3RequestBuilding to get the signS3 RequestTransformer. This can then be inserted into your spray-client pipeline to sign the request with your credentials like so:

val pipeline = (
  signS3(accessKeyId, secretAccessKey)
  ~> sendReceive(transport)

val res = pipeline(Get(""))


For monitoring purposes, the S3 Actor can be configured to publish all the HttpRequests and HttpResponses it makes to the Akka EventStream. To enable this, add the following configuration to your application.conf:

s3 {
  publish-event-stream = on

And then in your Actor, subscribe to the events like so:

context.system.eventStream.subscribe(self, classOf[S3Request])
context.system.eventStream.subscribe(self, classOf[S3Response])

def receive = {
  case S3Request(req)  => ...
  case S3Response(res) => ...

Running the unit tests

sbt test

Running the integration tests

The integration tests require you to have a AWS account. Export your AWS access key id and secret that have read/write permissions in S3 as environment variables like so:

export S3_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=a/ads6asd/ad6/D7sda7asdds78as87asd87ds

Then run the tests like so:

sbt it:test
