No test at the moment... SHAME!

How to use?

  • An exported env var named AWS_PROFILE is required, as this is the profile that will be used to retrieve running ec2 instances
  • Profile must include the region, currently we only support one region.
  • Run awscon it will retrieve your EC2 running instances and display a menu to connect to them.


Contributions are more than welcomed!

twine upload --repository-url dist/*
twine upload dist/*


Inspired by the AWS profile switcher awsp
