Is there a javascript code to download a file from Amazon S3? I couldn't find anything useful resources on the internet. So, if any of you have done something similar to this can you post the code?  Well, is it possible to write a javascript code to download a file from S3?

Hai, I was thinking along the same lines. Then I figured out I could make use of node.js, ie. use AWS SDK for javascript in node.js.

var AWS = require('aws-sdk');
    accessKeyId: ".. your key ..",
    secretAccessKey: ".. your secret key ..",
var s3 = new AWS.S3();
  { Bucket: "my-bucket", Key: "my-picture.jpg" },
  function (error, data) {
    if (error != null) {
      alert("Failed to retrieve an object: " + error);
    } else {
      alert("Loaded " + data.ContentLength + " bytes");
Try this out!

Hope this helps!!

How to display or the download the file to client side. can you add the code for that also

Hi Prashanth,

To run your script on the client-side, you need to use some automation tools. Generally in this type of use case, we use Terraform. But we can also use the Ansible playbook to do this task.
