access user-data from an EC2 instance


A very simple library to access user-data on EC2 machines (or a configuration file called ${HOME}\.deployer.json everywhere else).

This library first check of the existence of a file called ${HOME}\.deployer.json. If this file exists, the content of the file is parsed and, if the file contains valid JSON, the content is returned.

If there is no ${HOME}\.deployer.json, the library tries to access AWS Instance Metadata. In particular, this library accesses information passed using the user-data field that can be passed when launching an instance.
