Integrating AWS SDK as a library in Codeigniter

Is there already a handy CI 2 library for AWS SDK 1.5.x? If not, what would be the steps to make it into one?

I found a 3 year old posting about integrating Tarzan (the pre-pre-cursor to AWS SDK) to CI 1 here: I am wondering if these instructions still hold? One difference I noticed was that the way AWS SDK 1.5.3 declares its Access Identifiers has changed and I am not quite sure how to proceed to inform CI about this.

Thanks! mmiz

  • The blog post you linked is still basically valid, here's what exactly you need to do:

    First put SDK into subfolder inside libraries folder (for ex. aws-sdk-for-php). This is the file awslib.php in libraries folder:

    class Awslib {
        function Awslib()

    And then just use whatever AWS service you wish in the controller, let's say it's SQS:

        $sqs = new AmazonSQS();
        $response = $sqs->list_queues();

    Don't forget to set your credentials and rename the sample config file.
