How to get data from S3 to R

Assume that we want to get data from an S3 bucket using R. For this task we can work with the aws.s3 library. Assume that we are dealing with a CSV file which is in my-bucket under the path mydata.

Sys.setenv("AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID" = "xxxxxxx",
           "AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY" = "xxxxxxx")
obj <- get_object("mydata/myfile.csv", bucket = "my-bucket")
df1=read.csv(text = rawToChar(obj), sep="|", header = TRUE)
