Module: AWS::S3::BitTorrent

Defined in:
lib/aws/s3/bittorrent.rb

Overview

Objects on S3 can be distributed via the BitTorrent file sharing protocol.

You can get a torrent file for an object by calling torrent_for:

S3Object.torrent_for 'kiss.jpg', 'marcel'

Or just call the torrent method if you already have the object:

song = S3Object.find 'kiss.jpg', 'marcel'
song.torrent

Calling grant_torrent_access_to on a object will allow anyone to anonymously fetch the torrent file for that object:

S3Object.grant_torrent_access_to 'kiss.jpg', 'marcel'

Anonymous requests to

http://s3.amazonaws.com/marcel/kiss.jpg?torrent

will serve up the torrent file for that object.
