AWS Delivlib

learn aws-delivlib, which is a library that leverages AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) for defining continuous pipelines for building, testing and publishing code libraries through AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodePipeline.


  • pipeline source github repo must exist. (e.g. pfeilbr/aws-delivlib-playground)
  • github personal access token must be stored in SSM Parameter named /com/brianpfeil/aws-delivlib-playground/github-personal-access-token


src/pipeline-hello-world is an example code pipeline where the source is this github repo (pfeilbr/aws-delivlib-playground). The source nodejs app is src/hello-world with jest tests.

Code Pipeline

source -> build -> test (linux)
                -> test (windows)

If any of the tests (*.sh) in src/pipeline-hello-world/tests/ change, be sure to do a npm run build && npm run cdk deploy. Internally uses assets.ZipDirectoryAsset from "@aws-cdk/assets" package.

mkdir -p src/pipeline-hello-world
cd src/pipeline-hello-world
cdk init --language typescript
