NOTE: Please note that this project is no longer actively maintained. For the latest, AWS-supported version of ElasticWolf, please visit the AWS ElasticWolf Client Console page.

ElasticWolf is an application for managing Amazon Web Services resources with a simple and easy to use client-side UI.

This project started as a fork of ElasticFox but most of the code has been rewritten since then. It adds support for the GovCloud region, much better VPC support, and many other enhancements. It is also packaged with all necessary tools and utilities to deal with private and public keys and SSL certificates. In short, it provides everything for an AWS user to get going without using the command line tools.

In addition, it integrates well with the AWS command line tools such that the user can easily configure both ElasticWolf and the CLI to work together.

The project has been supported by the Global Public Sector sales team of AWS to provide a better customer experience when using the new GovCloud (ITAR-compliant) AWS region. GovCloud is not currently supported by the AWS Console. However, it is designed to work with all regions, so please file bugs if you find problems in any region.

The Windows version of the tool is packaged with openssl for generating keys and ssh clients for accessing Linux instances.

Testing On Mac OS X

  • To download the ElasticWolf project from the GitHub repository:

    git clone git://

  • Primary development is done on Mac so there is a special dev mode to run it as an OS X application with symlinks to the actual source code:

    make run

  • To get updates, execute the following in the source directory:

    git pull
