Soto for AWS

Swift 5.2 sswg:sandbox|94x20

Soto is a Swift language SDK for Amazon Web Services (AWS), working on Linux, macOS and iOS. This library provides access to all AWS services. The service APIs it provides are a direct mapping of the REST APIs Amazon publishes for each of its services. Soto is a community supported project and is in no way affiliated with AWS.

Table of Contents

Structure

The library consists of three parts

  1. soto-core which does all the core request encoding and signing, response decoding and error handling.
  2. The service api files which define the individual AWS services and their commands with their input and output structures.
  3. The CodeGenerator which builds the service api files from the JSON model files supplied by Amazon.

Swift Package Manager

Soto uses the Swift Package Manager to manage its code dependencies. To use Soto in your codebase it is recommended you do the same. Add a dependency to the package in your own Package.swift dependencies.

    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "https://github.com/soto-project/soto.git", from: "5.0.0")
    ],

Then add target dependencies for each of the Soto targets you want to use.

    targets: [
        .target(name: "MyApp", dependencies: [
            .product(name: "SotoS3", package: "soto"),
            .product(name: "SotoSES", package: "soto"),
            .product(name: "SotoIAM", package: "soto")
        ]),
    ]
)

Alternatively if you are using Xcode 11 or later you can use the Swift Package Manager integration and add a dependency to Soto through that.

Compatibility

Soto works on Linux, macOS and iOS. It requires v2.0 of Swift NIO. If you use v1.0 of Swift NIO then you will need to use v3.5 of Soto. Below is a compatibility table for different Soto versions.

Version Swift MacOS iOS Linux Vapor
5.x 5.2 - 12.0 - Ubuntu 18.04-20.04 4.0
4.x 5.0 - 12.0 - Ubuntu 18.04-20.04 4.0

Configuring Credentials

Before using the SDK, you will need AWS credentials to sign all your requests. Credentials can be provided to the library in the following ways.

  • Environment variables AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
  • ECS container IAM policy
  • EC2 IAM instance profile
  • Shared credentials file in your home directory
  • Static credentials provided at runtime

You can find out more about credential providers here

Using Soto

To use Soto you need to create an AWSClient and a service object for the AWS service you want to work with. The AWSClient provides all the communication with AWS and the service object provides the configuration and APIs for communicating with a specific AWS service. More can be found out about AWSClient here and the AWS service objects here.

Each Soto command returns a Swift NIO EventLoopFuture. An EventLoopFuture is not the response of the command, but rather a container object that will be populated with the response at a later point. In this manner calls to AWS do not block the main thread. It is recommended you familiarise yourself with the Swift NIO documentation, specifically EventLoopFuture if you want to take full advantage of Soto.

The recommended manner to interact with EventLoopFutures is chaining. The following function returns an EventLoopFuture that creates an S3 bucket, puts a file in the bucket, reads the file back from the bucket and finally prints the contents of the file. Each of these operations are chained together. The output of one being the input of the next.

import SotoS3 //ensure this module is specified as a dependency in your package.swift

let bucket = "my-bucket"

let client = AWSClient(
    credentialProvider: .static(accessKeyId: "Your-Access-Key", secretAccessKey: "Your-Secret-Key"),
    httpClientProvider: .createNew
)
let s3 = S3(client: client, region: .uswest2)

func createBucketPutGetObject() -> EventLoopFuture<S3.GetObjectOutput> {
    // Create Bucket, Put an Object, Get the Object
    let createBucketRequest = S3.CreateBucketRequest(bucket: bucket)

    s3.createBucket(createBucketRequest)
        .flatMap { response -> EventLoopFuture<S3.PutObjectOutput> in
            // Upload text file to the s3
            let bodyData = "hello world".data(using: .utf8)!
            let putObjectRequest = S3.PutObjectRequest(
                acl: .publicRead,
                body: bodyData,
                bucket: bucket,
                key: "hello.txt"
            )
            return s3.putObject(putObjectRequest)
        }
        .flatMap { response -> EventLoopFuture<S3.GetObjectOutput> in
            let getObjectRequest = S3.GetObjectRequest(bucket: bucket, key: "hello.txt")
            return s3.getObject(getObjectRequest)
        }
        .whenSuccess { response in
            if let body = response.body {
                print(String(data: body, encoding: .utf8)!)
            }
    }
}

Release Notes

v5.7.0
1 week ago

Using v5.4.0 of soto-core. Sync'ed service models to v1.40.2 of aws-sdk-go.

New Services

  • Proton: Fully managed delivery service for container and serverless applications.

Minor changes

  • Swift 5.2 is now the minimum requirement. PR #505
  • Add support for waiters (client-side abstraction used to poll a resource until a desired state is reached). PR #504
  • Add support for services that require a host prefix for certain API calls. Fixes issues with Chime, Location, MWAA. PR #507
  • Remove S3ControlMiddleware as the host prefix code is sufficient to ensure we are sending S3Control requests to the correct host.
  • This release brings in a new dependency: JMESPath.
