Since, cloudflare R2 is compatible with S3 API, we can simply use boto3 to work with R2 as wll

import logging
import boto3
from botocore.exceptions import ClientError

from botocore.client import Config


def create_presigned_url(bucket_name, object_name, expiration=3600):
    s3_client = boto3.client('s3',
            endpoint_url='https://<ACCOUNT_ID>.r2.cloudflarestorage.com',
            aws_access_key_id='<ACCESS_KEY>',
            aws_secret_access_key='<SECRET_KEY>',
            config=Config(signature_version='s3v4'),
      )
    try:
        response = s3_client.generate_presigned_url('get_object',
                    Params={'Bucket': bucket_name,
                                    'Key': object_name},
                                     ExpiresIn=expiration)
    except ClientError as e:
        logging.error(e)
        return None

    # The response contains the presigned URL
    return response
