nmcgann / s3-signer-test.php
Last active Oct 9, 2015
Amazon S3 Version 4 API request signer script
View s3-signer-test.php
//Simple example of links to files in a privately accessible s3 bucket being authorised.
//If the link is followed directly a 403 error will be returned with an xml error page.
//Instead jquery catches the click and creates an authorisation for the request assisted by
//a server that holds the access keys. The region, bucket and key are extracted and then a
//server-side authorisation query string is requested, appended to the link href and then the
//file is requested from s3.
// Bucket needs CORS turning on (for GET) and s3:GetObject permission needs to be present.

nmcgann / verify.js
Last active Feb 10, 2017
Javascript verify class based on using data atttibutes on the form inputs and submit(s). No jquery, just plain js (ES5).
View verify.js
* JS form data verification routine. Uses data attributes on the field:
* "data-verify": regex pattern that must be true for no error.
* "data-error": error message.
* "data-options": options separated by "|". First is regex parameters i/g/m as per the RegExp constructor,
* second is inversion of the test if "not", or "req" if the test must pass and a non-empty field is
* not allowed (both req and not can be used if separated by a ";" or space). Third is the name of a special test function when
* a regex isn't sufficient to do the test. Test fn must be within ValidateForm (or added to the prototype).
* If an option is blank, it can just be left empty e.g. "|req" if there are no regex params, but data-verify
* field must be present so the field is recognised as needing verifying.
