CDK Manual Installation Instructions

The CDK is also distributed as a single zip file which contains the same packages that we also publish to the various package managers.

You can download the zip file from the Releases page on GitHub.

The zip file comes with a signature so the integrity of the download can be verified (see below).

Installation overview

After extracting the archive, follow the following instructions:

Installing the CLI

The CLI (the cdk command) is always installed using npm, regardless of your language.

npm install -g /path/to/zip/js/aws-cdk-1.2.3.tgz

TypeScript/JavaScript (npm)

Run npm install on the desired tarballs:

# Install individual packages into your current project
npm install /path/to/zip/js/aws-lambda@1.2.3.jsii.tgz ...

Python (pip)

Run pip install on the .whl files you want to install into your current virtual env (or the global Python install):

# Install all wheels into your current Python env
pip install path/to/zip/python/*.whl

Java (Maven)

Install the packages using Maven:

# For every package you want to install
mvn install:install-file -Dfile=/path/to/zip/java/software/amazon/awscdk/dynamodb/1.2.3/dynamodb-1.2.3.jar
mvn install:install-file -Dfile=/path/to/zip/java/software/amazon/awscdk/dynamodb/1.2.3/dynamodb-1.2.3-sources.jar
mvn install:install-file -Dfile=/path/to/zip/java/software/amazon/awscdk/dynamodb/1.2.3/dynamodb-1.2.3-javadoc.jar

.NET (NuGet)

From a NuGet shell:

# For every package you want to install
Install-Package C:\Path\To\Zip\dotnet\Amazon.CDK.AWS.Events.1.2.3.nupkg

Verifying the integrity of your download

You can verify that your download is complete and correct by validating its signature against our public signing key. To do so, you need the following things:

Then run the following commands:

gpg --import cdk-team.asc
gpg --verify

If everything is correct, the output will contain the line:

gpg: Good signature from "AWS CDK Team <>"

If you obtained via the above URL, you can ignore the following message:

gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
