Overview of this book

AWS CodeDeploy, AWS CodeBuild, and CodePipeline are scalable services offered by AWS that automate an application's build and deployment pipeline. In order to deliver tremendous speed and agility, every organization is moving toward automating their entire application pipeline. This book will cover all the AWS services required to automate your deployment to your instances. You'll begin by setting up and using one of the AWS services for automation –CodeCommit. Next, you'll learn how to build a sample Maven and NodeJS application using CodeBuild. After you've built the application, you'll see how to use CodeDeploy to deploy the application in EC2/Auto Scaling. You'll also build a highly scalable and fault tolerant Continuous Integration (CI)/Continuous Deployment (CD) pipeline using some easy-to-follow recipes. Following this, you'll achieve CI/CD for a microservice application and reduce the risk within your software development life cycle globally. You'll also learn to set up an infrastructure using CloudFormation templates and Ansible, and see how to automate AWS resources using AWS Lambda. Finally, you'll learn to automate instances in AWS and automate the deployment lifecycle of applications. By the end of this book, you'll be able to minimize application downtime and implement CI/CD, gaining total control over your software development lifecycle.

Continuous Deployment of static application to AWS S3 using AWS CodePipeline

Before continuing, one should know the following things:

  • Creating an S3 bucket
  • Setting up CodeCommit (refer Chapter 1)
  • Setting up CodeBuild (refer Chapter 2)

If you are comfortable in implementing the preceding, then you are good to go.

The workflow of the pipeline is as follows:

  • The sample application code will reside in the CodeCommit repository
  • Once there will be a change in the code, the CodeBuild will pull and upload the latest revision in S3
  • The S3 bucket will be enabled to serve as website hosting

How to do it...

  1. Create a CodeCommit repository CP-StaticApp and put the source code file in the repository:
