A wrapper for AWS DynamoDB Local, intended for use in testcases. Will automatically download the files needed to run DynamoDb Local.
You can optionally override the download URL from where it fetches the installation archive as well as the target directory to which it will install the binaries (default is your system's temp folder).
Install the module as development dependency by running
npm install dynamodb-local --save-dev
Then in node, write your test script like this:
Alternatively if you wish to use this as detached server like this:
const DynamoDbLocal = require('dynamodb-local'); const dynamoLocalPort = 8000; const child = await DynamoDbLocal.launch(dynamoLocalPort, null, , false, true); // must be wrapped in async function // do your tests await DynamoDbLocal.stopChild(child); // must be wrapped in async function
Another example which also shows how to override the installer configuration can be found in examples/simple.js.
See AWS DynamoDB Docs for more info on how to interact with DynamoDB Local.
