How do I use AWS services to share a report after a GitHub Actions job and generate a unique static website from a zipped file?


Sure, let's get started with AWS services to share your report after a GitHub Actions job and generate a unique static website from a zipped file.

Step 1: Set Up an S3 Bucket

First, you need to create an S3 bucket in your AWS account. This bucket will store the zipped file and serve as the source for your static website.

Step 2: Upload the Zipped File

After creating the S3 bucket, upload the zipped file containing your report to this bucket. You can use the AWS Management Console or AWS CLI for this.

Step 3: Enable Static Website Hosting

Next, enable Static Website Hosting for your S3 bucket. Go to the Properties tab of your bucket in the AWS Management Console and select "Static website hosting". Specify an index document (like index.html) that will be served when accessing your website.

Step 4: Configure Bucket Policy

To allow public access to your static website, configure a Bucket Policy that grants read access to all users or specific IAM roles/users. You can define this policy under Permissions > Bucket Policy in the AWS Management Console.

Step 5: Create CloudFront Distribution (Optional)

If you want to improve performance and add SSL/TLS encryption, consider creating a CloudFront distribution for your static website using Amazon CloudFront service.

Step 6: Route 53 DNS Configuration (Optional)

If you want to use a custom domain name for your static website, configure DNS settings using Amazon Route 53 service. Create appropriate records (like A record or CNAME record) that point to either CloudFront distribution or directly to S3 endpoint.

Step 7: Generate Pre-Signed URL

Finally, to provide secure access control and temporary URLs for downloading files from S3, generate pre-signed URLs using AWS SDKs or CLI tools like aws s3 presign. Share these URLs with users to download the zipped file.

That's it! You've now set up a unique static website using AWS services to share your report after a GitHub Actions job. This approach leverages the scalability and reliability of AWS infrastructure. For more specific requirements, consult the official AWS documentation or seek professional guidance.
