This package is available in many languages in the standard packaging formats.

Node.js (Java/TypeScript)

To use from JavaScript or TypeScript in Node.js, install using either npm:

$ npm install @pulumi/aws

or yarn:

$ yarn add @pulumi/aws


To use from Python, install using pip:

$ pip install pulumi_aws


To use from Go, use go get to grab the latest version of the library

$ go get


The @pulumi/aws package provides a strongly-typed means to create cloud applications that create and interact closely with AWS resources. Resources are exposed for the entirety of AWS resources and their properties, including (but not limited to), ‘apigateway’, ‘cloudformation’, ‘EC2’, ‘ECS’, ‘iam’, ‘lambda’, etc. Many convenience APIs have also been added to make development easier and to help avoid common mistakes, and to get stronger typing.

Serverless Functions

The aws.serverless.Function class allows you to create an AWS lambda function directly out of a JavaScript/TypeScript function object of the right signature. This allows a Pulumi program to simply define a lambda using a simple lambda in the language of choice, while having Pulumi itself do the appropriate transformation into the final AWS Lambda resource.

This makes many APIs easier to use, such as defining a Lambda to execute when an S3 Bucket is manipulated, or a CloudWatch timer is fired. To see some examples of this in action, please refer to the examples/ directory.

The pulumi/pulumi-cloud repo offer higher level abstractions that build on top of this underlying capability.

Updating this provider

The AWS Resource Provider for Pulumi is based on the Terraform Provider for AWS. Instructions for keeping it up to date are available here.
