AWS credentials can either be passed in line (not ideal as your code is clutted with secret info) or it can be passed via environment variables (preferred method). The AWS tools require you to save your AWS account’s main
access key id and
secret access key in a specific way.
Create this credentials master file
$HOME/.credentials-master.txt in the following format (replacing the values with your own credentials):
Note: The above is the sample content of
.credentials-master.txt file you are creating, and not shell commands to run.
Protect the above file and set an environment variable to tell AWS tools where to find it:
export AWS_CREDENTIAL_FILE=$HOME/.credentials-master.txt chmod 600 $AWS_CREDENTIAL_FILE
We can now use the command line tools to create and manage the cloud.
pip install tornado pyzmq ipython
and then run
ipython notebook --pylab inline
This would open
http://127.0.0.1:8888/ in a browser window where you can run python interactively. According to iPython notebook installation, MathJax is not installed by default which can be installed with these steps.
from IPython.external.mathjax import install_mathjax install_mathjax()
