Amazon has added support for Python to Elastic Beanstalk.

Elastic Beanstalk gives you a way to deploy and manage PHP, Java, and .NET applications on Amazon Web Service (AWS), and Python has now been added to the list, according to a recent announcement.

If you want to develop or host a web application using Python, it can be deployed to AWS Elastic Beanstalk and updated using the Django or Flask web application frameworks.

Elastic Beanstalk supports Python applications and frameworks that run on the Apache HTTP Server and the WSGI interface. You can also make use of Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) database instances with your Elastic Beanstalk applications.

Another addition makes it possible to customize the Python runtime for Elastic Beanstalk using a set of declarative text files within your application. If your application contains a requirements.txt in its top level directory, Elastic Beanstalk automatically installs the dependencies using pip. Amazon is also adding a new configuration mechanism that means you can install packages from yum, run setup scripts, and set environment variables.
