AWS Cloud Formation deployment CLI

Project description

Build Status Code Coverage PyPI Downloads Latest PyPI version License

Senza is a command line tool for generating and executing AWS Cloud Formation templates in a sane way. It supports Cloud Formation templates as YAML input and adds own ‘components’ on top. Components are predefined Cloud Formation snippets that are easy to configure and generate all the boilerplate JSON that is required by Cloud Formation.


$ sudo pip3 install --upgrade stups-senza


$ senza init my-definition.yaml # bootstrap a new app
$ senza create ./my-definition.yaml 1 1.0

Please read the STUPS documentation on Senza to learn more.
