Introducing… amigen node.js package

This project is still very much a work-in-progress, but it is far enough along that I have published it.

What it does is provide a framework for creating predictable, pre-installed machine images on Amazon EC2 (the Amazon cloud). My motivation for doing this is to assist those people that don’t necessarily want to get into all the dirty details of creating and maintaining linux images. They just want something that is pre-configured to their specification.

The project is hosted at github.com.  Usage requires some knowledge of node.js.

Features so far include:

  • images automatically install security updates
  • various common software can be installed

That’s all for now…
