S3 File Loader

S3 File Loader allows you to retrieve a file from s3, and use Unstructured to preprocess into a structured Document object that is ready to be converted into vector embeddings. Unstructured is being used to cater for wide range of different file types. Regardless if your file on s3 is PDF, XML, DOCX, CSV, it can be processed by Unstructured. See here for supported file types.

Unstructured Setup

You can either use the hosted API or running locally via Docker.

  • Docker: docker run -p 8000:8000 -d --rm --name unstructured-api quay.io/unstructured-io/unstructured-api:latest --port 8000 --host
