How to generate URL to download file from S3 bucket

See Geoffrey’s answer for the format of the S3 URLs for public access buckets.

To generate a URL that works regardless of whether the bucket/object is public, you can use generate_presigned_url:

Params = {'Bucket': 'copernicus-dem-30m', 'Key': key},

… with a suitably chosen SIGNED_URL_TIMEOUT (in seconds).

Chrome still favours download attribute, but it completely ignores it if the anchor element has cross origin attributes ( meaning, if the file is hosted on a different domain).

To be able to download it, file needs to be served with header: Content-Disposition: attachment;

The solution is here Javascript to download a file from amazon s3 bucket?
for getting non public files, which revolves around creating a lambda function that will generate a signed url for you then use that url to download the file on button click

They is also aws amplify its created and maintain by AWS team.

Just follow Get started and downloading the file from your react app is simply as:

Storage.get('hello.png', {expires: 60})
.then(result => console.log(result))
.catch(err => console.log(err));
