dynash

A simple "shell" to access DynamoDB via "boto".

Usage

# boto dynamodb APIs
> dynash [--verbose] [--env=environment]

# boto dynamodb2 APIs
> dynash2 [--verbose] [--local] [--env=environment]

Description

You can create/delete/list/describe tables, add/modify/delete/list records and more.

  • ls: list tables

  • create {tablename}: create table

  • delete {tablename}: delete table

  • describe {tablename}: describe table

  • capacity {tablename} {read_capacity} {write_capacity}: update table capacity

  • use {tablename}: select table

  • scan/l: list table content

  • get {id}: get item(s) from table

  • put {id} {properties}: add item to table

  • update {id} {properties}: update item

  • rm {id}: remove item from table

  • query/q: query table

and many more (use 'help' to find the available commands)

Note:

  • Credentials should be in your .boto config file under the [Credentials] (see http://docs.pythonboto.org/en/latest/boto_config_tut.html)

  • You can specify the DynamoDB region to use and other DynamoDB related configuration entries in your .boto config under the [DynamoDB] section:

    [DynamoDB] region=us-west-1

  • You can specify alternative environments in your .boto by adding boto sections prefixed with the environment name, and then selecting the environment at startup:

    --- .boto ------- [Credentials] ... [env.Credentials] ... [env.DynamoDB] ...

    --- run --------

    dynash --env=env

  • Item related commands use the currently selected table (see 'use' command) but you can pass a table name as first parameter prefixed by ':'

  • Command completion is enabled (and it will complete table names)

  • You can set various flags (like debug, verbose, pretty-print, etc.) using the 'set' command (try 'set -l')k

  • You can redirect the output of commands using standard shell redirection ( > outfile )

  • You can execute shell commands using '!shell command'
