I've installed heat-api heat-api-cfn heat-engine and heat-cloudwatch

My heat commands work (when I invoke heat-cfn form command line, the interpreter complains command not found). Heat-cfn doesn't at all and heat-api-cfn starts loading the service up into console. So do I just use heat commands for both heat and cloud formation?

do you mean if heat-cfn is deprecated? what do you mean by 'not working'? can you please edit your question to be more clear? thanks

You didn't mention what distribution you're running, so this may or not be helpful:

If you are installing OpenStack via RDO or Fedora, you can find the heat-cfn command as part ofd the openstack-heat-cli package. Here's a neat trick with yum:

# yum install /usr/bin/heat-cfn
