Can we use boto to generate last modified datetime of S3 objects

+1 vote
Do we have an API that can help me get the last modified datetime in boto. I wish to focus only on those files that have been changed.  A heads up I am using python script for S3 uploads.

Okay this code snippet will help you print the last modified entities. Give it a shot.

>>> import boto

>>> s3 = boto.connect_s3()

>>> bucket = s3.lookup('mybucket')

>>> for key in bucket:

       print key.name, key.size, key.last_modified

index.html 13738 2012-03-13T03:54:07.000Z

markdown.css 5991 2012-03-06T18:32:43.000Z

>>>

This may not a be a perfect solution because last modified is a string. You may also consider using boto.utils.parse_ts to parse a string
