An up-to-date bundle of all the Amazon Web Services (AWS) command line tools in a single location.
We've been maintaining a slightly different version of this project internally at Bizo for a couple of years and it has been helpful for us. We figured it might be useful for others.

That's all it should take. Please reach out to me if you have trouble installing and using.
We will try to keep this as up-to-date as possible but will happily accept pull requests for tools with newer releases or even issues noting new tool releases.
- Looks like the cloudsearch credentials file has a different format than the other tools that use credentials file. This wouldn't be a big deal except for the fact that cloudsearch uses the same name for the environment variable.
