I had a play with Elastic Beanstalk the other day. It’s one of those things people turn their noses up at, but it seems pretty good for prototyping and small things. My biggest issue so far has been that, for Python applications, it expects a WSGI callable called
application in the file
application.py… but I was using Flask, and every single Flask application ever has a WSGI callable called
app in the file
app.py. I tried to not care, but it got too much after about an hour so I went and found how to override it:
$ cat .ebextensions/01_wsgi.config option_settings: aws:elasticbeanstalk:container:python: WSGIPath: "app:app"
Thank you Nik Tomazic for that! (=⌒‿‿⌒=)

Those two lines cause all loggers to log everything to the console. Check out the logging.basicConfig docs to see what else you could do.
