Extendable Python module for ansible EC2 inventories

Project Description

Ansible EC2 inventory
=====================

This Python module is based on the [original Ansible EC2 inventory
script](https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ansible/ansible/devel/contrib/inventory/ec2.py)
that is linked in the [Ansible
docs](http://docs.ansible.com/ansible/intro_dynamic_inventory.html#example-aws-ec2-external-inventory-script).

The Python module in this repo fixes a few issues by being

- installable via `pip` / PyPi: no need to place code from the Ansible
repo in your inventory.
- extendable for your needs: the class `Ec2Inventory` can be used as a
base class for customizations.

Installation
------------

pip install ansible-ec2-inventory

Usage
-----

### As a script

ansible-ec2-inventory --config ec2.ini

*Note:* if you want to provide a boto profile, prefix the command with
`AWS_PROFILE=myprofile`.

### As a Python module

Example:

``` {.python}
from ansible_ec2_inventory import Ec2Inventory
import json

def main():
# get path of ec2.ini
path = os.path.dirname(os.path.realpath(__file__))

# get inventory
ec2inventory = Ec2Inventory(configfile=path + '/ec2.ini')
data = ec2inventory.get_inventory()

# print json
print(json.dumps(data, sort_keys=True, indent=2))

if __name__ == '__main__':
main()
```
