Tools for creating CloudFormation templates

python-cloudformation transforms Python source code representations of AWS CloudFormation templates into JSON. It's most useful for automating tedious user data manipulation in its very rudimentary "templating language."

Usage

See the simple example in python-cloudformation(7).

Installation

Prerequisites:

  • Python >= 2.6

From source on Mac OS X, Debian, Ubuntu, and Fedora

git clone git://github.com/devstructure/python-cloudformation.git
cd python-cloudformation && make && sudo make install

From source on CentOS and RHEL

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/5/i386/epel-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
yum install python26
git clone git://github.com/devstructure/python-cloudformation.git
cd python-cloudformation && make && sudo make install PYTHON=/usr/bin/python26

This installs Python 2.6 from EPEL side-by-side with Python 2.4 and so won't break yum.

With a package manager

DevStructure maintains Debian packages and Python eggs. See Installing with a package manager on the wiki.
