Low-level, data-driven core of boto 3.
On 10/09/2019 support for Python 2.6 and Python 3.3 was deprecated and support was dropped on 01/10/2020. To avoid disruption, customers using Botocore on Python 2.6 or 3.3 will need to upgrade their version of Python or pin the version of Botocore in use prior to 01/10/2020. For more information, see this blog post.
Assuming that you have Python and virtualenv installed, set up your environment and install the required dependencies like this or you can install the library using pip:
$ git clone https://github.com/boto/botocore.git $ cd botocore $ virtualenv venv ... $ . venv/bin/activate $ pip install -r requirements.txt $ pip install -e .
$ pip install botocore
After installing botocore
Next, set up credentials (in e.g. ~/.aws/credentials):
[default] aws_access_key_id = YOUR_KEY aws_secret_access_key = YOUR_SECRET
Then, set up a default region (in e.g. ~/.aws/config):
Other credentials configuration method can be found here
Then, from a Python interpreter:
>>> import botocore.session >>> session = botocore.session.get_session() >>> client = session.create_client('ec2') >>> print(client.describe_instances())
