Issue #30 resolved

Local dynamodb server

Tommaso Barbugli
created an issue

Hi, I am new to dynamodb-mapper and I would like to ask if there is a way to use it to connect to a local instance of dynamodb (see http://aws.typepad.com/aws/2013/09/dynamodb-local-for-desktop-development.html for reference)

Thank You! Tommaso

    Even, I was looking for the same.

    Story seems little complicated. Dynamo DB has a new API version (V2) with some additional features (which will not be back-ported to V1). Boto suports both, but as far as I understood, dynamodb-mapper is using the V1 part of boto. So, essentially mapper issues V1 calls.

    Currently V1 calls fail with the local instance. I am seeing this error "The action or operation requested is invalid. Verify that the action is typed correctly". And so, I dont think mapper in the current form can be used with dynamo-local.

    Can somebody else confirm this understanding ?
