Running locally

First, you'll need to provide credentials so that boto can access the AWS API. See a terraform example here! Options for setting this up are described in the boto docs. Ensure that your IAM user has at least the following permissions:

  "Version": "2012-10-17",
  "Statement": [
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Action": ["ec2:DescribeInstanceTypes", "ec2:DescribeRegions", "pricing:*"],
      "Resource": "*"

Running in Docker (recommended)

  1. Clone the repository, if not already done:
git clone
  1. Build a docker image:
docker build -t .
  1. Run a container from the built docker image:
docker run -d --name some-container -p 8080:8080
  1. Open localhost:8080 in your browser to see it in action.
