AWS Workflow

Recommended Posts

I am a heavy user of Amazon Web Services. I usually need to stop/start instances as I am developing or hacking at something, and often I need to get the IP address of a server so I can ssh into.


So I started a little project that uses python and boto.  It is not tested. I don't think you need anything other than the default python. 


If you're interested, give it a try and let me know if it works.




Example Usage:


Set the region you want to search:

    ec2 config region=us-west-2


Search for EC2 instances. It will search all properties of the EC2 instance. You can use a single keyword, or multiple keywords to refine the search.  The pubic IP address will go into your clipboard.

    ec2 find killroy running


Stop/Start Instances


    ec2 stop killroy

    ec2 start killroy
