Extending AWS CLI using aws-shell

Share on:

Do you yearn for auto-completion and manual pages (automatically) within the AWS CLI tool? Look no more, as aws-shell is here to save (or shell?) the day.

Here’s an example of using aws-shell: aws-shell in wsl1

The aws-shell requires python and pip to install. You can install the aws-shell using pip:

$ pip install aws-shell

If you are not installing into a virtualenv you can run:

$ sudo pip install aws-shell

Once you’ve installed aws-shell, you can configure it with:

$ aws-shell
aws> configure

Feel free to learn more about aws-shell here at it’s GitHub repository page.
