Demo app for re:Invent 2019 - DOP336
Serverless app infrastructure with the AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK)
If you haven't done so already, you need to install CDK. This requires that NodeJS be installed.
Version 10 or later of NodeJS is supported. Run
npm install -g aws-cdk to install it.
Set up virtualenv
This project is set up like a standard Python project. The initialization
process also creates a virtualenv within this project, stored under the .env
directory. To create the virtualenv it assumes that there is a
python for Windows) executable in your path with access to the
package. If for any reason the automatic creation of the virtualenv fails,
you can create the virtualenv manually.
To manually create a virtualenv on MacOS and Linux:
$ python3 -m venv .env
After the init process completes and the virtualenv is created, you can use the following step to activate your virtualenv.
$ source .env/bin/activate
If you are a Windows platform, you would activate the virtualenv like this:
Install Python packages
Once the virtualenv is activated, you can install the required dependencies.
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
At this point you can now deploy the CloudFormation template for this code.
$ cdk synth
To add additional dependencies, for example other CDK libraries, just add
them to your
setup.py file and rerun the
pip install -r requirements.txt
