Release: AWS Elastic Beanstalk simplifies EB CLI installation on May 8, 2019

Elastic Beanstalk released open-source scripts to simplify installing the Elastic Beanstalk Command Line Interface (EB CLI).

Release date: May 8, 2019


The Elastic Beanstalk Command Line Interface (EB CLI) is a command line client that you can use to create, configure, and manage Elastic Beanstalk environments. Previously, to use the EB CLI, you had to manually install the EB CLI's dependencies, including Python and pip. You also had to manage dependency conflicts with other software in your development environment.

With today's release, you can use the EB CLI setup scripts to install the EB CLI and its dependencies. The scripts also create a virtual environment for the EB CLI that is automatically activated when you run eb.

For more information, see Install the EB CLI Using Setup Scripts in the AWS Elastic Beanstalk Developer Guide.
