New Local Testing Tools Now Available for Amazon ECS

Posted on: Mar 27, 2019

You can now use a new set of open source tools to test your applications locally before deploying to Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS).  

Previously, you had to deploy your applications to ECS to ensure that updates were technically working properly for the credentials and task metadata service. If something was misconfigured, it required subsequent deployments to production to resolve the issue.

Now, you can use a new open source repository to locally test containers that use AWS credentials or the task metadata service end-points. This speeds up the local development iteration loop to allow you to get your applications running faster on ECS with confidence.

To get started with the new local development tools, read the documentation on the Github repo or read our blog.
