s3cmd - MIME Type

Since I’m utilizing a static content blog called Hexo, I use a tool called s3cmd to sync the content to AWS S3. I decided to try and get everything running under the Linux Subsystem for Windows since lately I’ve been under Windows more often than not. I believe there is a MIME type bug in s3cmd or in the python-magic package. This causes CSS and JS files to not be rendered by the browser due to “strict MIME type rules”.

My solution was to just switch over to awscli. It’s actually faster anyway so that’s a plus.
