Provides a handy CLI for DevOps functionality on Typescript projects (and particularly those also using the Serverless framework targetting the AWS cloud).
You can install
do-devops both locally to a repo as well as globally. For a global install:
npm install global do-devops
With a global install the
dd CLI command should be available to you. Global installs are in general the most convenient way to get started using this CLI.
Local installs to a repo are recommended if you are using any of the CLI commands as part of your repo's devops. This then allows these commands to be wrapped as scripts in your
package.json file and ensures that everyone interacting with the repo is using
do-devops and using a consistent version of it.
# using npm npm install --save-dev do-devops # using yarn yarn add --dev do-devops
To get an up-to-date list of commands from
do-devops just run
dd by itself from the terminal and it will list out all commands. Furthermore, if you want more detail on a command you can just type
dd [command] --help.
That said we wanted to give you some idea of what you're getting here. It's not like we're running for political office and want to abstract everything to the point of saying nothing. :)
Think of the commands you get as fitting into two camps ... well maybe three. We'll discuss the camps in the following two sections.
The Serverless Crowd
The first camp (which you could argue is two camps) are those commands whose primary function is to aid and abet people who use the Serverless Framework and so their primary utility is only activated when you're inside a repo that's using the framework. The two primary examples of this are listed below:
deploy- the Serverless framework is largely a deployment framework but open a really powerful set of tooling that allows for strongly typed configuration, inline configuration, and much more. A full description of this is actually descibed on the
aws-orchestratewebsite. This is a sister repo for this command and if you're using this then you'd probably be interested in both (though you don't need it). Basically the short version is we'll make your serverless life a lot easier and more powerful while maintaining at the core the same Serverless framework that you know and love.
Now for folks who type
dd deploy or
dd build in a repo which is not got the serverless framework installed, you'll instead get a thin wrapper around your package manager of choice (aka., yarn, npm, and pnpm). Mainly we're just trying to get out of your way here but it does have utility for folks who are constantly switching between repos which use differnt package managers and accidentally typing
yarn build instead of
npm run build, etc.
In situations such as this, the CLI will detect which package manager is being used in the the wrapper and then run the appropriate script in
package.json for you. You can completely ignore this functionality if you like but sometimes this abstraction is nice too. For those who like this we also have a few hidden commands that perform this abstraction for you:
tt install- runs
npm install, or
pnpm installbased on the repo
tt outdated- runs
npm outdated, or
pnpm outdatedbased on the repo
tt update- runs
npm update, or
pnpm updatebased on the repo
By "hidden" we mean that these commands will not be listed when you enter just
ddto the console. You can force their visibility with
The Rest of Us
Ok the remaining commands are a little less attached to the idea of AWS and Serverless but some are still connected. Here are a few examples:
it is quite common to spread a related set of functionality across files in a sub-directory and then to add a
index.tsfile which makes each of these files available in a more convenient fashion. The problem is that everytime you add, remove, or rename a file you also need to update the
index.tsfile. With this feature this can be done for you. You simply state your interest in the file to be autoindexed by dropping in
// #autoindexinto the file and then run
tt autoindexin the repo and it'll autoindex all which have this hint.
Do you find yourself wonder what the latest tagged version is in your repo? Just type
tt latestto find out. You can also type
tt latest [pkg]and it will tell you about another npm packages latest release.
Provides interesting information about the repo you are in. This info is contextual and will add in serverless info if your repo is using serverless, it also knows about certain frameworks (like VueJS, React, Lerna, RushJS, etc.). Primarily just meant as a way to give you a summary overview of the repo's characteristics.
AWS provides a handy way for you to manage your secrets. Well actually they provide two. Most people will be aware of secrets manager but there is also SSM and SSM is much more cost effective and will meet the needs for a majority of your use cases (secrets manager is more power for those that need it's features). Of course the AWS CLI does provide utility to manage SSM from the command line but it's awkward. From this CLI you can a compact list, get, and set surface area that we find much nicer. Let's face it, we all have a lot of secrets ... why not make managing them lower friction.
If you're in a serverless repo it will bring up a nice tabular view of all the serverless functions which are exposed by the repo. If you're not in a serverless repo it will switch to interactive mode and ask you which AWS profile in your crentials file to use to report on the same information (it'll ask you which region too if that's not stated in the profile).
There are plenty more functions but this should give you a flavor and hopefully let you decide if you're interested.
In order to have the transpiled source and types resolve the Typescript path aliases we have installed
ts-patch to patch tsc to allow for the plugin API to be used in the CLI. This then let's us use
We welcome contributions as PR's but we ask that you respect the
eslint rules that are defined in this repo from a code style standpoint and that you target the develop branch for your PR.
