FabulAWS is a tool that lets you simply and easily create new servers, from scratch. You can do this in an existing Fabric file, or separately in your own application.

Simple example

FabulAWS lets you create EC2 instances using a context manager in Python and easily execute work on that instance. Typical workflow might look like this:

from fabulaws.ec2 import MicroLucidInstance

with MicroLucidInstance():
    run('uname -a')

If needed, you can extend the instance classes defined in the fabulaws.ec2 module as needed to further customize the instance before presenting it as a context manager (or using it in your fab file). To do so, simply extend the setup() and cleanup() methods in one of the existing classes.


Dependencies are listed in the accompanying PIP requirements file. To install them, run the following command:

pip install -r requirements.txt

Please refer to the documentation for more details.
