s3 Tag

Amazon S3 is a simple file storage solution that is great for storing content, but how well does it stack up when used as the storage mechanism for a web-based file explorer? Recently I was tasked with doing just this for a client. Furthermore, as opposed to the existing solution (which used CKFinder and synchronised copies of the files between our own server and the bucket), I needed to connect to an S3 bucket directly. In this post I'll talk about how we did it.
