A quick guide to built-in Bellatrix provisioning commands
A table of Bellatrix provisioning commands as at 1.1.2
As mentioned in my previous post Bellatrix allows you to start and provision Amazon Web Services EC2 instances.In this context ‘provision’ refers to the process of installing software, creating directories, changing file permissions etc.
The built in commands are documented here in the official doco but before I found that I’d ripped the cmds.py file apart and produced the following table. It’s a little more succinct than the official version so I think it’s worth publishing here.
For obvious reasons this type of thing is prone to Bellatrix changing. This page is valid as of the 1.1.2 version of Bellatrix.
