Can I install the AWS CLI on Astronomer?


We currently use Heroku and I use a buildpack to install AWS CLI on the machines since we need it for some credentials management. What would be the best way to spin that up on the machines that are running astro?



Yes! The AWS CLI is the equivalent of a Python package, so you can go ahead and add awscli directly to your requirements.txt file.

You’ll get a dependency compatibility error with boto3 once you initialize your project, so just upgrade to the latest version by adding boto3==1.9.115 to that same requirements.txt file and you’ll be all set.
