In a hurry? No problem! Here’s a quick start to using jack that takes only a few minutes. The commands below creates a sample Elastic Beanstak environment. It then demonstrates how to use jack to download the infrastructure configurations so you can save them into version control. You make some changes to the configuration file and then upload it back to the EB environment.
brew cask install boltopslabs/software/bolts mkdir hi cd hi jack create hi-web-stag # creates a EB App named hi and EB Environment named hi-web-stag jack download hi-web-stag # ... make adjustments to jack/cfg/hi-web-stag.yml ... jack upload hi-web-stag
Congratulations! You have successfully created a Elastic Beanstalk environment, downloaded the config and uploaded the config. It was really that simple 😁
