Build Status

The goamz package enables Go programs to interact with Amazon Web Services.

This is a fork of the version developed within Canonical with additional functionality and services from a number of contributors!

The following packages are available at the moment:

How to build and install goamz

Just use

go get
with any of the available packages. For example:
  • $ go get
  • $ go get

Running tests

To run tests, first install gocheck with:

$ go get

Then run go test as usual:

$ go test

Note: running all tests with the command

go test ./...
will currently fail as tests do not tear down their HTTP listeners.

If you want to run integration tests (costs money), set up the EC2 environment variables as usual, and run:

$ gotest -i
