Weekly Builds - AWS CLI & CDK Up and Running

Today on Weekly build, we install and configure the AWS CLI and AWS CDK (Cloud Development Kit) on Windows, Linux and Mac OS.

AWS CLI:

⚠️ Do NOTE: We are installing version 2.7.1 in this example. The version may be different by the time you read this!

Here are the steps needed to install the AWS CLI on:

  • Linux

    • You must be able to extract or "unzip" the downloaded package. If your operating system doesn't have the built-inΒ unzipΒ command, use an equivalent.
    • The AWS CLI version 2 usesΒ glibc,Β groff, andΒ less. These are included by default in most major distributions of Linux.
    • We support the AWS CLI version 2 on 64-bit versions of recent distributions of CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, Amazon Linux 1, Amazon Linux 2 and Linux ARM.
    • Because AWS doesn't maintain third-party repositories, we can’t guarantee that they contain the latest version of the AWS CLI.
    curl "https://awscli.amazonaws.com/awscli-exe-linux-x86_64-2.7.1.zip" -o "awscliv2.zip"
    unzip awscliv2.zip
    sudo ./aws/install
    
  • Mac

    • You know which release of the AWS CLI version 2 you'd like to install. For a list of versions, see theΒ AWS CLI version 2 changelogΒ onΒ GitHub.
    • We support the AWS CLI version 2 on Apple-supported versions of 64-bit macOS.
    • Because AWS doesn't maintain third-party repositories, we can’t guarantee that they contain the latest version of the AWS CLI.
    curl "https://awscli.amazonaws.com/AWSCLIV2-2.7.1.pkg" -o "AWSCLIV2.pkg"
    sudo installer -pkg AWSCLIV2.pkg -target /
    
  • Windows
