Setup Steps

Here are some things you should make sure are done before working with this repository.

  1. Install pip The latest version of Python 2.7 should have pip installed by default so you likely have it already! If you need help getting pip read more here: http://pip.readthedocs.io/en/latest/installing/#install-pip

    This should be the case for all modern operating systems.

  2. Install virtualenv If you don't have virtualenv installed you can install it with pip. One of these commands should work:

    pip install virtualenv

    sudo pip install virtualenv

    If neither of these commands work you can read more in the documentation here: https://virtualenv.pypa.io/en/stable/installation/

  3. Install boto3 If you don't have boto3 you can install it with pip. This command should work:

    pip install boto3

    If you have any issues you can review the documentation here: https://boto3.readthedocs.io/en/latest/guide/quickstart.html

  4. Install the AWS CLI If you don't have the AWS Command Line Interface setup you can install it with pip. One of these commands should work:

    pip install awscli

    sudo pip install awscli

    sudo pip install awscli --ignore-installed six

    If none of these commands work you can read more in the documentation here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/installing.html

  5. Get your AWS Access Keys Log into the aws console and follow these instructions:

    1. Go to https://console.aws.amazon.com/iam/home?#home
    2. Choose "Users"
    3. Choose your IAM username (not the check box)
    4. Choose the Security Credentials tab and then choose Create Access Key.
    5. To see your access key, choose Show User Security Credentials. Your credentials will look something like this:

    Access Key ID: AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE Secret Access Key: wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY

    1. Choose Download Credentials, and store the keys in a secure location.

    If you have any issues with this step review the documentation: Reference: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSSimpleQueueService/latest/SQSGettingStartedGuide/AWSCredentials.html)

  6. Configure the AWS CLI Once you have your access keys you can configure the AWS CLI.

    Open a shell and use this command:

    aws configure

    Follow the prompts and enter in your keys and the reigon you are working in. You can see a list of regions and region codes here: http://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/using-regions-availability-zones.html#concepts-available-regions

    AWS Access Key ID [None]: AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE AWS Secret Access Key [None]: wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY Default region name [None]: us-east-1 Default output format [None]: ENTER

    You should now be ready to go with the AWS CLI

  7. Twython You should be able to install Twython with:

    pip install twython

    But if you have any issues you can check the documentation here: https://twython.readthedocs.io/en/latest/usage/install.html

You can’t perform that action at this time.
