Getting Started

Ensure aws cli tool works and you have run aws configure. Uses boto3 and assumes the following ENVs are set:


Your default region should be set. Verify it with

cat ~/.aws/config 



ecs service ls

It will first ask you to select a default cluster. Currently this tool does not have a command to create one.

This preference is saved here:

cat .settings.conf 

    "cluster": "Dev-Apps"

Lets try that again..

ecs service ls

Cluster: Dev-Apps
