s4cmd uses the same credentials file as AWS CLI. If this file has already been configured for use with Filebase on your system, you can skip this step.
If you do not already have a credentials file from AWS CLI configured, follow these steps:
Then create and edit the credentials file to contain your access key pair:
aws_access_key_id = FILEBASE_ACCESS_KEY
aws_secret_access_key = FILEBASE_SECRET_KEY
Once configured with credentials, can begin using s4cmd.
s4cmd --endpoint-url=https://s3.filebase.com ls
s4cmd --endpoint-url=https://s3.filebase.com mb s3://filebase-sample-bucket
s4cmd --endpoint-url=https://s3.filebase.com cp image.jpg s3://filebase-sample-bucket
s4cmd --endpoint-url=https://s3.filebase.com cp s3://filebase-sample-bucket/image.jpg .
