SSH into EC2 instances via tag name
A pair of command line utilities for finding and SSH-ing into your Amazon EC2 instances by tag (such as ‘Name’).
Forked from Instagram original code by YPlan.
pip install ec2-ssh
# ec2-ssh % ec2-ssh nginx2 # equivalent to # ssh email@example.com % ec2-ssh root@appserver % ec2-ssh deploy@nginx2 sudo restart nginx # Specifying the user with an environment variable % EC2_SSH_USER=deploy ec2-ssh nginx2 # ec2-host # w/o arg: prints all active instances % ec2-host ec2-123-45-67-89.compute-1.amazonaws.com ec2-132-45-67-89.compute-1.amazonaws.com ec2-231-45-67-89.compute-1.amazonaws.com # w/ arg % ec2-host backend ec2-132-45-67-89.compute-1.amazonaws.com ec2-132-45-67-90.compute-1.amazonaws.com # w/ tag arg too % ec2-host -t environment production ec2-132-45-67-90.compute-1.amazonaws.com ec2-111-45-67-90.compute-1.amazonaws.com
- Next version release notes here
- Rewrite to use setup.py’s entry_points feature, rather than scripts. This makes everything importable from the ec2_ssh module and makes ec2-ssh faster as calling the ec2-host behaviour no longer requires subprocess.
- ec2-ssh supports specifying the username with the -u/--user flag or the EC2_SSH_USER environment variable.
- Acquired the PyPI name ec2-ssh, moved fork back there from ec2-ssh-yplan.
- Fix Python 3 bug with subprocess output type
- Pip failed to receive wheel in version 1.5.0, re-uploading
- Now using boto3
- ec2-ssh rewritten in Python. As part of this, the automatic ‘pretty prompt’ has been removed.
- Forked by YPlan
- Output from ec2-host is now in random order, allowing ec2-ssh to spread logins between similar instances
- Python 3 compatibility
- Fix issue when ec2-host finds one offline instance with same name as an online instance
- Merged pull requests to add region and tag support
- Add line echoing host before establishing SSH connection
- override prompt (PS1) to show tag name
- initial release
