CDK Pretty Diff

Format cdk diff output to html making review easier. Inspired by Terraform prettyplan.

Installation

If you are using aws-cdk <= v1:

npm install cdk-pretty-diff@1.x

or aws-cdk >= v2:

npm install cdk-pretty-diff

Usage

Instead of running cdk diff command line and receiving diff output, use cdk-pretty-diff (in javascript). Examples below.

Get cdk diff as an object

import { getCustomDiff } from 'cdk-pretty-diff';

const nicerDiffs = await getCustomDiff();
console.log(JSON.stringify(nicerDiffs, null, 2));

Render Pretty CDK Diff to html

HTML Sample Screenshot

  • Original CDK Diff output is available (click the Orig CDK Diff button)
import { resolve } from 'path';
import { writeFileSync } from 'fs';
import { getCustomDiff, renderCustomDiffToHtmlString } from 'cdk-pretty-diff';

const nicerDiffs = await getCustomDiff();
const html = renderCustomDiffToHtmlString(nicerDiffs, 'CDK Diff');
writeFileSync(resolve(__dirname, '../cdk.out/diff.html'), html);

optionally, provide command line input args (as you could with cdk diff command):

import { resolve } from 'path';
import { writeFileSync } from 'fs';
import { Command, ConfigurationProps } from 'aws-cdk/lib/settings';
import { getCustomDiff, renderCustomDiffToHtmlString } from 'cdk-pretty-diff';

const configProps: ConfigurationProps = {
  commandLineArguments: {
    _: [Command.DIFF],
    context: [
      'foo=bar',
      'hello=world',
    ],
  }
}
const nicerDiffs = await getCustomDiff({ configProps });
const html = renderCustomDiffToHtmlString(nicerDiffs, 'CDK Diff');
writeFileSync(resolve(__dirname, '../cdk.out/diff.html'), html);

example: bin/diff-to-html-with-cli-args.ts
