The aws_ext python package contains some useful functions (built on top of boto3) for managing some aws services. At the moment only some utilities for the Aws Glue Data catalog


pip install aws_ext


import boto3
import aws_ext

session = boto3.session.Session()


from aws_ext import glue_databases
glue_client = session.client("glue")

Extracting tables with (too) many versions

glue_databases.get_tables_with_many_versions(glue_client, database_name="mydb", threshold=1)

Deleting old tables versions

glue_databases.delete_old_tables_versions(glue_client, database_name="mydb", keep=1, dryrun=True)
