Universal Command Line Interface for Amazon Web Services

The AWS CLI is an open source tool built on top of the AWS SDK for Python (Boto) that provides commands for interacting with AWS services. With minimal configuration, you can start using all of the functionality provided by the AWS Management Console from your favorite terminal program.

The official documentation can be found here:

To install the latest v2: snap install aws-cli --classic

To install the latest available v1 snap: snap install aws-cli --channel=v1/stable --classic

To migrate from v1 to v2: see:

The "latest" track is not the default and is not recommended. It will be updated from v1 to v2 in the future.
