If you are struggling with writing the exact right boto3 or AWS CLI or JavaScript code snippets, this tool saves you a huge amount of time. Not only is it a really smart and clever idea but its implementation is awesome. It doesn't work for every single API call but it works enough to give you a decent skeleton. Great job!

WOW! This Extension should be mentioned on all AWS courses out there! This tool is amazing!!! Disclaimer Do not expect 100% perfect code. But this extension takes a lot of general things out of Your shoulder.

Fantastic tool! Ian Mckay is a certified genius. This extension shows you exactly which underlying APIs are being called as you use the AWS console. Five massive stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Not fully functional. Tried to record creating a DocumentDB instance and nothing was recorded in Terraform.

What a great Tool! Ian McKay has provided a solution that has been needed for a very long time. How many times do you find yourself starting from scratch on a CloudFormation Template or even searching for something that is close to your needs (but not quite), then trying to make the required modifications. Console Recorder gives you an incredible start. Maybe you are new to CloudFormation and really need that extra assistance. Or maybe you know CloudFormation and want to learn Terraform. Th...

Absolutely awesome! Does everything I need it to do almost perfectly. This extension saves an extremely large amount of time, automatically producing Cloudformation templates, Python, AWS CLI, Terraform.... So far, I have been using the automatically generated Cloudformation templates and Python code as a starting point, drastically accelerating my scripting process. Found this via Corey Quinn. 100% recommended for all AWS admins, Devops, etc.

Awesome! 2 clicks and it works! I found this tool in LastWeekinAWS and I fully agree with Corey's "review": "If you build something in the AWS web console, and then want to control it with CloudFormation, AWS cheerfully tells you to throw away what you've built and to start over. Ian McKay wasn't content with this, so spent a few months of his spare time building AWS Console Recorder--a browser extension that looks at what you're doing in the console, then turns it into CloudFormation, Bot...
