$ brew tap jasonswett/exosuit && brew install exosuit $ exo --version
As of this writing Exosuit can:
- Launch an EC2 instance
- SSH into an EC2 instance
- Terminate EC2 instances
- List EC2 instances
Exosuit does not yet do anything to do with installing Rails, although that of course is in the plans.
Launching an EC2 instance
You can launch an EC2 instance by using the
$ exo launch
Within a few seconds, your EC2 instance will be ready.
SSHing into your EC2 instance
The next thing you might want to do is SSH into the instance you just created. You can do that like this:
$ exo ssh
Listing your EC2 instances
Want to see all the instances you’ve launched? Run this command.
$ exo instances
Terminating an EC2 instance
To terminate an instance, run:
$ exo terminate
You will be given a prompt of all your running instances. You can select any number of instances to terminate.
If you run the
exo command, you’ll see some help output, which will look something like this:
