ng-s3upload - Upload to S3 using AngularJ

An AngularJS directive that allows you to simply upload files directly to AWS S3.


  1. Create AWS S3 bucket

  2. Add CORS configuration to your bucket In AWS web interface, select S3 and select the wanted bucket. Expand the "Permissions" section and click on the "Add CORS configuration" button. Paste the wanted CORS configuration, for example: XML <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <CORSConfiguration xmlns=""> <CORSRule> <AllowedOrigin>*</AllowedOrigin> <AllowedMethod>GET</AllowedMethod> <MaxAgeSeconds>3000</MaxAgeSeconds> <AllowedHeader>Authorization</AllowedHeader> </CORSRule> <CORSRule> <AllowedOrigin>*</AllowedOrigin> <AllowedMethod>PUT</AllowedMethod> <MaxAgeSeconds>3000</MaxAgeSeconds> <AllowedHeader>Content-Type</AllowedHeader> <AllowedHeader>x-amz-acl</AllowedHeader> <AllowedHeader>origin</AllowedHeader> </CORSRule> </CORSConfiguration> Once the CORS permissions are updated, your bucket is ready for client side uploads.

  3. Create a server side service that will return the needed details for uploading files to S3. your service shall return a json in the following format:

    XXX - A policy json that is required by AWS, base64 encoded. YYY - HMAC and sha of your private key ZZZ - Your public key Here's a rails example, even if you're not a rails developer, read the code, it's very straight forward. ```ruby def s3_access_token render json: { policy: s3_upload_policy, signature: s3_upload_signature, key: GLOBAL[:aws_key] } end


    end ```

  4. Download ng-s3upload.min.js and add it to your project or use bower (bower install ng-s3upload --save).


  1. Add ng-s3upload.min.js to your main file (index.html)

  2. Set ngS3upload as a dependency in your module javascript var myapp = angular.module('myapp', ['ngS3upload'])

  3. Add s3-upload directive to the wanted element, example: html <div s3-upload bucket="s3Bucket" ng-model="product.remote_product_file_url" s3-upload-options="{getOptionsUri: s3OptionsUri}" >

attributes: * bucket - Speificy the wanted bucket * s3-upload-options - Provide additional options: * getOptionsUri - The uri of the server service that is needed to sign the request (mentioned in section Setup#3) - Required.
