boto: A Python interface to Amazon Web Services


Boto3, the next version of Boto, is now stable and recommended for general use. It can be used side-by-side with Boto in the same project, so it is easy to start using Boto3 in your existing projects as well as new projects. Going forward, API updates and all new feature work will be focused on Boto3.

An integrated interface to current and future infrastructural services offered by Amazon Web Services.

Currently, all features work with Python 2.6 and 2.7. Work is under way to support Python 3.3+ in the same codebase. Modules are being ported one at a time with the help of the open source community, so please check below for compatibility with Python 3.3+.

To port a module to Python 3.3+, please view our Contributing Guidelines and the Porting Guide. If you would like, you can open an issue to let others know about your work in progress. Tests must pass on Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, and 3.4 for pull requests to be accepted.
