In this post I will share how to install AWS CLI (Amazon Web Service Command Line Interface tool) using pip package manager and then configure it.
Note: this post is a part of the series of posts about my experience using Ubuntu Desktop for software development.
Check for Python Version
To avoid security warning during installation of AWS CLI make sure that you have Python version 2.7.11+, which comes preinstalled with Ubuntu Desktop 16.04. To check the version of Python and the actual name of the executable – type in Terminal window:
$ python --version Python 2.7.11+ $ which python /usr/bin/python $ ls -l /usr/bin/python /usr/bin/python -> python2.7
