A simple tool to install AWS agents and packages.

Project description


awsctl is a utility for installing AWS packages on servers in the cloud. AWS packages such as Systems Manager, Cloudwatch, etc. have different installation methods which can be hard to manage when setting up a simple server. This package aims to make this as simple as awsctl install ssm.
