An interactive Amazon webservices shell
iboto offers an interactive shell with the basic set of ec2 commands from the Amazon command line tools, on steroids!
full tab-completion on arguments
- instance ids
- instance types, etc.
Saving much fiddly copy-pasting of ids around.
Without having to load all of Java up first before running a command you’ll see it’s much snappier controlling instances compared to the Amazon tools (as great as they are!).
- ec2ssh - waits for the instance to be running and SSH to be available before connecting; all without having to find and copy the public dns name, guess when it’s booted fully or even open a new terminal for SSH.
- ec2watch - closely monitor what is happening to your instances whilst you’re waiting.
all the nice features of ipython
History recall, python integration, session recording, configurability, etc.
