Netlify AWS CloudFormation Resource

Deploy Netlify sites as part of serverless, SAM, or raw AWS cloudformation stacks.

This project lets you define your site as infrastructure as code.

Demo

How to use it?

Declare one or many Netlify sites in your AWS CloudFormation template by adding the following to your Resources section of your CF template.

# Logical ID
myNetlifySite:
  # Resource type
  Type: Custom::NetlifySite
  # Resource properties
  Properties:
    # AWS ARN of provisioning function uses to create Netlify site
    ServiceToken: {
      "Fn::Join": ["",
        ["arn:aws:lambda:",{"Ref":"AWS::Region"},":453208706738:function:custom-resource-netlify-site"]
      ]
    }
    # Settings required for provisioning Netlify site
    netlifyToken: xyz-123-netlify-token
    githubToken:  xyz-123-github-token
    name: new-new-new-site-new-name
    custom_domain: lol-wow-cool.com
    build_settings:
      repo_url: https://github.com/DavidWells/test-site
      repo_branch: master
      dir: build
      cmd: npm run build
