EC2 Salt Minion Launcher

Project description

Shaker is BSD-New Licensed command-line application to launch Salt minions as Amazon EC2 instances.

Salt is a powerful remote execution manager that can be used to administer servers in a fast and efficient way.

Running an Amazon EC2 instance as a Salt minion is fairly simple. Also tedious, if you need to launch minions often. Shaker bridges the gap between launching an EC2 instance and bootstrapping it as a Salt minion.

Example

Shaker is usually run from the command line. To start a Salt minion, have it connect upon boot to Salt master salt.example.com:

$ shaker --ami ami-057bcf6c --master salt.example.com

Started Instance: i-9175d8f4

To access: ssh ubuntu@ec2-107-20-93-179.compute-1.amazonaws.com
To terminate: shaker-terminate i-9175d8f4
