A couple of days ago I started to build a simple command-line upload client for the new Amazon Glacier archival service.
You can get the software from my github project “glacieruploader”.
Now I can write the first update, and it’s going pretty well. I had some contributors opening issues with the first
releases – still very early with 0.0.3 currently – and one contributor really contributing a pull request.
I updated the command line options, added a few more actions and am uploading a fairly large archive from my home
computer to my own vault using my own client uploader. Eating your own dog food, and it’s tasting fine for me. 😉
There are a couple of other command line clients available now, so I want to compile a lit of tools that you can
use if you don’t have a full java environment on your system or if you simply don’t like my client. So, here we
go with a list of command-line tools for Amazon Glacier:
If you’re working on your own client or if you successfully used a client that’s not in this list, please add a comment.
