Project description

A low-level Amazon Web Services API client for Tornado

Version Status Coverage License


tornado-aws may be installed via the Python package index with the tool of your choice. I prefer pip:

pip install tornado-aws


import json
import pprint

import tornado_aws
from tornado import gen, ioloop

HEADERS = {'Content-Type': 'application/x-amz-json-1.0',
           'x-amz-target': 'DynamoDB_20120810.DescribeTable'}
PAYLOAD = {'TableName': 'my-dynamodb-table'}

_ioloop = ioloop.IOLoop.instance()

def async_request():
    client = tornado_aws.AsyncAWSClient('dynamodb')
    response = yield client.fetch('POST', '/', headers=HEADERS,
    x = json.loads(response.body.decode('utf-8'))
