Creates AWS certificates for Route53-managed domain names.

Project description


A Python package for creating Amazon Certificate Manager (ACM) certificates for domains in Route 53.


  • Will recognise when ACM requires domain ownership to be verified, and will create the relevant domain records for you.
  • Waits until the certificate is issued and ready to use.
  • Idempotent.
    • Running a second time will not create a duplicate certificate.
    • If the execution times-out because AWS took too long to issue the certificate then just run again with the same parameters and wait some more.
