Deliver Files to Clients Via DigitalOcean Spaces
What is the best way to make a file available for external clients to be able to download, via DigitalOcean Spaces, while restricting access to only said clients.
This is a use case where we’d traditionally setup an SFTP server, but I’m interested in a solution using DigitalOcean Spaces which avoids the added infrastructure of managing an SFTP server.
Is it possible to give an external user read-only access to a folder in DigitalOcean Spaces? Would it be possible to download the file via REST API or would they need to use something like s3cmd?
