I'm trying to pull down all files in a given bucket, except those in a specific directory, using R.
In the aws cli, I can use...
aws s3 sync s3://my_bucket/my_prefix ./my_destination --exclude="*bad_directory*"
In aws.s3::s3sync(), I'd like to do something like...
aws.s3::s3sync(path='./my_destination', bucket='my_bucket', prefix='my_prefix', direction='download', exclude='*bad_directory*')
...but exclude is not a supported argument.
Is this possible using aws.s3 (or paws for that matter)?
Please don't recommend using aws cli - there are reasons that approach doesn't make sense for my purpose.
