str, local_file: Union[str, Any], version_id: Optional[str] = None, use_threads: Union[bool, int] = True, boto3_session: Optional[Session] = None, s3_additional_kwargs: Optional[Dict[str, Any]] = None) None

Download file from a received S3 path to local file.


In case of use_threads=True the number of threads that will be spawned will be gotten from os.cpu_count().

  • path (str) – S3 path (e.g. s3://bucket/key0).

  • local_file (Union[str, Any]) – A file-like object in binary mode or a path to local file (e.g. ./local/path/to/key0).

  • version_id (Optional[str]) – Version id of the object.

  • use_threads (bool, int) – True to enable concurrent requests, False to disable multiple threads. If enabled os.cpu_count() will be used as the max number of threads. If integer is provided, specified number is used.

  • boto3_session (boto3.Session(), optional) – Boto3 Session. The default boto3 session will be used if boto3_session receive None.

  • s3_additional_kwargs (Optional[Dict[str, Any]]) – Forward to botocore requests, only “SSECustomerAlgorithm”, “SSECustomerKey” and “RequestPayer” arguments will be considered.
