  • GitHub repo aws-cli

    Universal Command Line Interface for Amazon Web Services

    Project mention: Downloading files from S3 with multithreading and Boto3 | | 2021-04-10

    From my experience, I found it easier and more convenient to call aws-cli [1] than using Boto. Among other things, aws-cli is already multithreaded, in both download and upload. There is even a setting to tweak the number of parallel requests [2].



  • GitHub repo awesome-aws

    A curated list of awesome Amazon Web Services (AWS) libraries, open source repos, guides, blogs, and other resources. Featuring the Fiery Meter of AWSome.

  • GitHub repo chalice

    Python Serverless Microframework for AWS

    Project mention: Any thoughts on chalice for websockets? | | 2021-03-31

    I use Chalice with websockets, and haven't had any issues. I had to make a slight hack to allow other non-websocket lambdas to be able to send messages on the websocket, but other than that it works without issue. There is a ticket with Chalice open about the sending messages from other Lambdas.

  • GitHub repo serverless-application-model

    AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) is an open-source framework for building serverless applications

    Project mention: Build a GraphQL API with TypeScript, AWS AppSync, and CDK | | 2021-06-13

    Previously, I had used AWS SAM to build a CRUD app for notes. Recently, I wanted to learn more about the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK), GraphQL, and AWS AppSync, so I decided to refactor my original project.

  • GitHub repo boto3

    AWS SDK for Python

    Project mention: Deploy Django App on AWS Lambda using Serverless (Part 2) | | 2021-05-10

  • GitHub repo aws-sam-cli

    CLI tool to build, test, debug, and deploy Serverless applications using AWS SAM

    Project mention: Build Serverless Applications using CDK and SAM | | 2021-05-21

    We were able to test our API and Lambda using the new Serverless Application Model integration with CDK! You can find all code on my GitHub. Be aware that this feature is in preview. Feel free to do more extensive testing. You can report bugs and submit feature requests to the SAM opensource repository.

  • GitHub repo SAWS

    A supercharged AWS command line interface (CLI).

  • GitHub repo Moto

    A library that allows you to easily mock out tests based on AWS infrastructure.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Does anyone else find the AWS Lambda developer experience poor? | | 2021-04-18

    Not a full solution, but when I was doing this I really got to love the awslogs utility:

    It allows you to stream Cloudwatch logs from the command line, so you can grep them, save them to files, etc... (The web based Cloudwatch interface is terrible.)

    Another suggestion is to try to modularize the core business logic in your lambda such that you separate the lambda-centric stuff from the rest of it. Obviously, though, if "the rest of it" is hitting other AWS services, you're going to hit the same testing roadblock.

    Or you can try mocking, which may or may not provide much value for you. There's a python library for that, (moto), but it's not 100% up to date wrt AWS services/interfaces, last I had checked. Might be worth a try though.

  • GitHub repo ansible-for-devops

    Project mention: A Complete Step by Step Ansible Tutorial & Guide | | 2021-04-28

    Project mention: How to optimize users manually turning on/off ec2's as needed for work? | | 2021-06-14
  • GitHub repo ScoutSuite

    Multi-Cloud Security Auditing Tool

    Project mention: Is there any way to efficiently audit security groups? | | 2021-04-28

    ScoutSuite is similar to prowler (runs faster though) but last time I used it it had less checks.

  • GitHub repo image-super-resolution

    Project mention: Totally free and unlimited upscale or superresolution AI | | 2021-06-03
