How to use AWS SDK for Javascript with MinIO Server Slack

In this recipe we will learn how to use aws-sdk for Javascript with MinIO server. aws-sdk is the official AWS SDK for the Javascript programming language.

1. Prerequisites

Install MinIO Server from here.

2. Installation

Install aws-sdk for Javascript from the official AWS Javascript SDK docs here

var s3  = new AWS.S3({
          accessKeyId: 'YOUR-ACCESSKEYID' ,
          secretAccessKey: 'YOUR-SECRETACCESSKEY' ,
          endpoint: '' ,
          s3ForcePathStyle: true, // needed with minio?
          signatureVersion: 'v4'

// putObject operation.

var params = {Bucket: 'testbucket', Key: 'testobject', Body: 'Hello from MinIO!!'};

s3.putObject(params, function(err, data) {
      if (err)
       console.log("Successfully uploaded data to testbucket/testobject");

// getObject operation.

var params = {Bucket: 'testbucket', Key: 'testobject'};

var file = require('fs').createWriteStream('/tmp/mykey');
