An ember-cli-deploy plugin that archives and uploads FastBoot build to AWS S3 based on FastBoot AWS.

Build Status

This plugin is based on FastBoot AWS, but it only manages FastBoot builds for S3, and does only three things:

  1. archives the FastBoot build(from ember-cli-deploy-build) using revision information(from ember-cli-deploy-revision-data).
  2. creates a file that contains FastBoot deploy info using the archived build as so:
  "bucket": "S3_BUCKET",
  "key": "NAME_OF_ZIP_FILE"
  1. uploads archived build and the FastBoot deploy info file to S3.

This plugin works along with ember-fastboot-app-server. The same bucket and key in FastBoot deploy info are required for both to work together.

What is an ember-cli-deploy plugin?

A plugin is an addon that can be executed as a part of the ember-cli-deploy pipeline. A plugin will implement one or more of the ember-cli-deploy's pipeline hooks.

For more information on what plugins are and how they work, please refer to the Plugin Documentation.

Quick Start

To get up and running quickly, do the following:

$ ember install ember-cli-deploy-fastboot-s3
  • Place the following configuration into config/deploy.js
ENV['fastboot-s3'] = {
  accessKeyId: '<your-aws-access-key>',
  secretAccessKey: '<your-aws-secret>',
  bucket: '<your-s3-bucket>',
  region: '<the-region-your-bucket-is-in>'
  • Run the pipeline
$ ember deploy


Run the following command in your terminal:

ember install ember-cli-deploy-fastboot-s3

Configuration Options

For detailed information on how configuration of plugins works, please refer to the Plugin Documentation.


The AWS access key for the user that has the ability to upload to the bucket. If this is left undefined, the normal AWS SDK credential resolution will take place.

Default: undefined


The AWS secret for the user that has the ability to upload to the bucket. This must be defined when accessKeyId is defined.

Default: undefined

bucket (required)

The AWS bucket that the files will be uploaded to.

Default: undefined

region (required)

The region the AWS bucket is located in.

Default: undefined


The archive directory for which the archived files are stored.

Default: 'tmp/deploy-archive'


The archive type (zip|tar).

Default: 'zip'


The deploy info file.

Default: 'fastboot-deploy-info.json'


The root directory where the file matching filePattern will be searched for. By default, this option will use the distDir property of the deployment context.

Default: context.distDir


The unique revision number for the version of the file being archived and uploaded to S3. By default this option will use either the revisionKey passed in from the command line or the revisionData.revisionKey property from the deployment context.

Default: context.commandLineArgs.revisionKey || context.revisionData.revisionKey


The following properties are expected to be present on the deployment context object:

Configuring Amazon S3

Minimum S3 Permissions

Ensure you have the minimum required permissions configured for the user (accessKeyId). A bare minimum policy should have the following permissions:

    "Statement": [
            "Sid": "Stmt1EmberCLIS3DeployPolicy",
            "Effect": "Allow",
            "Action": [
            "Resource": [
            "Principal": { "AWS": "arn:aws:iam::AWS-account-ID:root" }

Replace with the name of the actual bucket you are deploying to. Also, remember that "PutObject" permission will effectively overwrite any existing files with the same name unless you use a fingerprinting or a manifest plugin.

Sample CORS configuration

To properly serve certain assets (i.e. webfonts) a basic CORS configuration is needed

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<CORSConfiguration xmlns="http://s3.amazonaws.com/doc/2006-03-01/">

Replace http://www.your-site.com** with your domain.
