We believe in a common sense and low future maintenance approach. We leverage and build on top of giant shoulders like AWS. This results in a light-touch tech stack with lower maintenance down the road where everyone wins.
Over time we have written tools for infrastructure. These tools are open source and speed up delivery of infrastructure. The Bolts Toolbelt is a collection of some of the BoltOps tools packaged into a single installer.
Easy way to build and ship docker images to AWS ECS. Ufo is a tool that makes building and shipping Docker containers to AWS ECS super easy. At a basic level, ufo builds the docker container image, registers that image to ECS as a task definition, and then deploys that task definition to ECS by updating the service. Ufo provides a
ufo ship command that deploys your code to ECS.
Lono is a CloudFormation framework tool that helps you build your CloudFormation templates and manage the entire CloudFormation stack lifecyle. It helps you craft the templates and takes you all the way to the final infrastructure provisioning step.
Multi-functional tool to manage AWS infrastructure. Sonic Screwdriver is a multi-functional tool to manage AWS infrastructure. It's a swiss army knife type of tool and has a variety of uses. Mainly it's focus is to automate mundane repetitive tasks into simple one line commands. With it you are able to debug environments and issues quickly.
Manage your AWS Elastic Beanstalk Jack environments easily. Jack is a tool to manage AWS Elastic Beanstalk environments. Jack is a wrapper tool around the aws eb cli3 tool. Jack allows you to create environments using the saved template configuration file generated by
eb config save. Jack moves these generated config file to the jack/cfg folder of your project and manages the config files from there.
The bolts package installs executables in
/opt/bolts/embedded/bin and symlinks the Bolts specific executables to your
/usr/local/bin. Remember to add
/usr/local/bin to your PATH. To add it to your PATH, you can add the following to your
~/.profile and start a new terminal.
