Advanced Features

Advanced features and detailed information for using CDK with Runway.

Build Steps

Build steps (e.g. for compiling TypeScript) can be specified in the module options. These steps will be run before each diff, deploy, or destroy.

Example

---
deployments:
  - modules:
      - path: mycdkmodule.cdk
        environments:
          dev: true
        options:
          build_steps:
            - npx tsc

Disabling NPM CI

At the start of each module execution, Runway will execute npm ci to ensure the CDK is installed in the project (so Runway can execute it via npx cdk. This can be disabled (e.g. for use when the node_modules directory is pre-compiled) via the skip_npm_ci module option:

Example

---
deployments:
  - modules:
      - path: mycdkmodule.cdk
        options:
          skip_npm_ci: true
