Installing AWS CLI on Mac
The AWS guide is still a good starting point for this. The main piece I had trouble with was using
aws --version once it was installed.
Prerequisite: have Python3 and Pip3 installed
Adjust $PATH so it has the path to the AWS executable.
1) Find where it installed AWS
The guide says to use
which python3 - but when I installed Python it installed it to my user, not the system.
When you run
pip3 install awscli --updgrade --user it should spit out something like this
... awscli in ./Library/Python/3.8/lib/python/site-packages (1.18.18)
The "./" indicated it is a local path, NOT the system path. You can confirm by checking
ls -la /Users/<insert_user_name>/Library/Python/3.8/bin/aws
~./bash_profile and add the path
3) Reload the profile
4) Test -
aws --version. It should output
aws-cli/1.18.18 Python/3.8.2 Darwin/17.7.0 botocore/1.15.18
