Gulp plugin for deploying a set of files directly into an Amazon Elasticbeanstlak Instance


var gulp = require('gulp')
 ,  gulpEbDeploy = require('gulp-elasticbeanstalk-deploy')
gulp.task('deploy', function() {
    return gulp.src([
    ], { base: './' })
        name: 'my-application', // optional: If not set, the name from package.json will be used 
        version: '1.0.0', // optional: If not set, the version from package.json will be used 
        timestamp: true, // optional: If set to false, the zip will not have a timestamp 
        waitForDeploy: true, // optional: if set to false the task will end as soon as it starts deploying 
        amazon: {
            accessKeyId: "< your access key (fyi, the 'short' one) >", // optional 
            secretAccessKey: "< your secret access key (fyi, the 'long' one) >", // optional 
            signatureVersion: "v4", // optional 
            region: 'eu-west-1',
            bucket: 'elasticbeanstalk-apps',
            applicationName: 'MyApplication',
            environmentName: 'my-application-env'

The code above would work as follows

  • Take the files sepcified by gulp.src and zip them on a file named { version }-{ timestamp }.zip (i.e:
  • If amazon credentials (accessKeyId, secretAccessKey) are provided in the amazon object, set them on the AWS.config.credentials. If not provided, the default values from AWS CLI configuration will be used.
  • Try to upload the zipped file to the bucket specified by amazon.bucket. If it fails because the bucket doesn't exist, try to create the bucket and then try to upload the zipped file again
  • Uploads the ziped files to the bucket on the path {{ name }}/{{ filename }} (i.e: my-application/
  • Creates a new version on the Application specified by applicationName with VersionLabel { version }-{ timestamp } (i.e: 1.0.0-2016.04.08_13.26.32)
  • Updates the Environment specified by environmentName by settings its application version to the new just uploaded
  • Waits for completion of the deploy process on the environment, informing on status changes
