Using AWS boto3 library with Pythonista
Hello forum. I am new to using Pythonista and the main reason for getting it was to be able to develop AWS Lambda functions from anywhere without taking my MacBook along. I have read where some 3rd party libraries may not work with Pythonista. I am trying to add AWS' boto3 library. Using Stash I was able to successfully pip install boto3 but am running into issues using the library.
My question for the forum is if anyone has prior experience using boto3 and AWS services in Pythonista. If the library is known to work well, I can dig more into the issues I'm currently having.
Thank you for any information you may have.
I wanted to provide an update to my findings in case anyone may have the same questions as I did.
I was able to successfully install the boto3 library using information I found on StaSH. Once I had that installed, I executed
pip install boto3
Once that completed and I restarted Pythonista, the library imports successfully and is usable.
I'm very excited to be able to work on out AWS services now from my iPad. I think this will be awesome.
@wguyth, could you maybe give us an update on your experiences developing on boto3?
