Browse your AWS resources using a hierarchical object model


Fire up your python interpreter RPEL. All usage of the module is done through an 'aws' instance exported by the main module, so you do:

>>> from awsom import aws

First time, you will want to configure an account, for instance:

>>> aws.add_account("myaws", access_key_id="xxxx", secret_access_key="yyyy")

Your account details are saved automatically to awsom's config file, so next time you use it, the account will already be there. The account is accessible as a children node (named "myaws"), you can print it out:

>>> print aws.myaws
aws > myaws
  Type: <class 'awsom.config.AccountEntity'>
    .access_key_id = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx"
    .name = "myaws"
    .secret_access_key = "yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy"
  Children (1):

So far we only have access to some ec2 instance info, you can print your instance list

>>> print aws.myaws.ec2.instances
aws > myaws > ec2 > instances
  Type: <class 'awsom.services.ec2.EC2InstancesRootEntity'>
    .name = "instances"
  Children (2):

And some info about some instance:

>>> print aws.myaws.ec2.instances.i_xxxxxxxx
aws > myaws > ec2 > instances > i_xxxxxxxx
  Type: <class 'awsom.services.ec2.EC2InstanceEntity'>
    .architecture = x86_64
    .dns_name = ec2-xx-yy-zz-ccc.compute-1.amazonaws.com
    .id = i-xxxxxxxx
    .instance_type = m1.large
    .name = i_xxxxxxxx
    .private_ip_address = 10.xxx.yyy.ccc
    .region = RegionInfo:us-east-1
    .tags = {}
  Children (0):

Another thing to try:

>>> for i in aws.myaws.ec2.instances: print aws.myaws.ec2.instances[i]
