Easy to use AWS commands for developers (currently supports EC2; tools for S3 coming soon)

Project Description

Scripts in easyaws package allow easy access to EC2 and S3 (intended to be used by developers). The goal is to create easy-to-use interfaces, analogous to 'cp', 'ssh', 'scp' (which developers are assumed to be already comfortable with), for EC2 and S3.

To setup, run 'aws configure' to enter your AWS credentials and configuration. Enter your AWS Access Key ID, AWS Secret Access Key, Default region name and Default output format (as "text").

Once you have configured your AWS credentials, you can use following scripts that are installed with 'easyaws' package:
1. 'ec2list': List your EC2 instances
2. 'ec2ssh': SSH into EC2 instances using instance name/tag

I am working on following scripts:
1. 'ec2scp': Script to easily 'scp' files to/from EC2 instances.
2. 's3cp': Script to cp files to/from S3 buckets (i.e. 'cp' for S3)
