The bridge between grunt and aws-sdk. This moudle allows you to call AWS APIs as grunt tasks.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ^0.4.5

If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:

npm install grunt-aws-sdk --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "aws" task


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named aws to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().
The target object consists of service, method and params properties.

service: the name of AWS service. e.g.) ec2, s3, dynamodb
method: the function name of AWS SDK.
params: the first argument that method is called with.
(See also AWS SDK document)

  aws: {
    options: {
      credentials: {
        accessKeyId: 'Your Access Key ID',
        secretAccessKey: 'Your Secret Access Key',
        region: 'ap-northeast-1'
    'launchEC2Instance': {
      service: 'ec2',
      method: 'runInstances',
      params: {

          Value: 'Your Instance Name'

grunt.registerTask('launch', ['aws:launchEC2Instance', 'aws:setName']);

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
