In this tutorial, I will show you how to install minio client on Mac. Minio Client (mc) provides a modern alternative to UNIX commands like ls, cat, cp, mirror, diff etc. It supports filesystems and Amazon S3 compatible cloud storage service (AWS Signature v2 and v4).
We need to use brew again to install Minio client.
brew install minio-mc
Configure minio client
We will configure minio instance with mc client
mc config host add minio http://127.0.0.1:9000 accessCode secretCode
Create a bucket
If you want to upload some data or files you need to create a bucket. We will use
mb to create the bucket.
mc mb minio/photos
List the files
We can use mc command to list the files in the bucket
mc ls minio/photos
Currently, there is nothing in photos directory let’s upload some file in it.
mc cp ~/Downloads/minio.jpg minio/photos/
