Boto vs Boto3
Boto3 is the latest Python SDK, and as such the SDK targeted by Moto. All our @mock_-decorators should be usable against any boto3-version.
Still stuck on boto, the former SDK? Moto does have some support, in the form of our deprecated services:
from moto import mock_ec2_deprecated import boto @mock_ec2_deprecated def test_something_with_ec2(): ec2_conn = boto.ec2.connect_to_region('us-east-1') ec2_conn.get_only_instances(instance_ids='i-123456')
When using both boto2 and boto3, one can do this to avoid confusion:
from moto import mock_ec2_deprecated as mock_ec2_b2 from moto import mock_ec2
If you want to use Server Mode, the easiest way is to create a boto config file (~/.boto) with the following values:
[Boto] is_secure = False https_validate_certificates = False proxy_port = 5000 proxy = 127.0.0.1
