An directory of examples is available with the PynamoDB source on GitHub. The examples are configured to use http://localhost:8000 as the DynamoDB endpoint. For information on how to run DynamoDB locally, see : Use PynamoDB Locally.
You should read the examples before executing them. They are configured to use
http://localhost:8000 by default, so
that you can run them without actually consuming DynamoDB resources on AWS, and therefore not costing you any money.
Although you can install & run PynamoDB from GitHub, it’s best to use a released version from PyPI:
$ pip install pynamodb
Getting the examples¶
You can clone the PynamoDB repository to get the examples:
$ git clone https://github.com/jlafon/PynamoDB.git
Running the examples¶
Go into the examples directory:
$ cd pynamodb/examples
Configuring the examples¶
Each example is configured to use
http://localhost:8000 as the DynamoDB endpoint. You’ll need
to edit an example and either remove the
host setting (causing PynamoDB to use a default), or
specify your own.
Running an example¶
Each example file can be executed as a script by a Python interpreter:
$ python model.py
