ghauth for aws

npm install awsauth
var awsauth = require('awsauth')
 
awsauth({
  profile: 'my-profile'
}, function(errprofile) {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(profile)
})

Running this will output something like this:

$ node example.js
 
Your AWS Access Key ID: AKIAEXAMPLEEXAMPLE12
Your AWS Secret Access Key: SECRETKEYSECRETKEYSECRETKEYSECRETKEY1234
Your preferred AWS region (optional, us-east-1): eu-west-1
 
{
  key: 'AKIAEXAMPLEEXAMPLE12',
  secret: 'SECRETKEYSECRETKEYSECRETKEYSECRETKEY1234',
  region: 'eu-west-1'
}

awsauth will first look in ~/.aws/config for the profile (the place the aws cli tool stores credentials) and if not found it will prompt and then verify the keys. If the keys are verified it will store them in the config file

awsauth({
  profile: 'my-profile',
  verify: false, // skip the verification step 
  config: 'some-other-config-file-path' // use another config file, 
  region: 'eu-west-1' // change the default region 
}, function() {
  ...
})
