Save Dataframe to csv directly to s3 Python

146

I have a pandas DataFrame that I want to upload to a new CSV file. The problem is that I don't want to save the file locally before transferring it to s3. Is there any method like to_csv for writing the dataframe to s3 directly? I am using boto3.
Here is what I have so far:

import boto3
s3 = boto3.client('s3', aws_access_key_id='key', aws_secret_access_key='secret_key')
read_file = s3.get_object(Bucket, Key)
df = pd.read_csv(read_file['Body'])

# Make alterations to DataFrame

# Then export DataFrame to CSV through direct transfer to s3

You can use:

from io import StringIO # python3; python2: BytesIO 
import boto3

bucket = 'my_bucket_name' # already created on S3
csv_buffer = StringIO()
df.to_csv(csv_buffer)
s3_resource = boto3.resource('s3')
s3_resource.Object(bucket, 'df.csv').put(Body=csv_buffer.getvalue())

You can directly use the S3 path. I am using Pandas 0.24.1

In [1]: import pandas as pd

In [2]: df = pd.DataFrame( [ [1, 1, 1], [2, 2, 2] ], columns=['a', 'b', 'c'])

In [3]: df
Out[3]:
   a  b  c
0  1  1  1
1  2  2  2

In [4]: df.to_csv('s3://experimental/playground/temp_csv/dummy.csv', index=False)

In [5]: pd.__version__
Out[5]: '0.24.1'

In [6]: new_df = pd.read_csv('s3://experimental/playground/temp_csv/dummy.csv')

In [7]: new_df
Out[7]:
   a  b  c
0  1  1  1
1  2  2  2

Release Note:

S3 File Handling

pandas now uses s3fs for handling S3 connections. This shouldn’t break any code. However, since s3fs is not a required dependency, you will need to install it separately, like boto in prior versions of pandas. GH11915.
