SYNC missed versions from official npm registry.


Tapas is a quicker, simpler, and more approachable command line interface for managing AWS resources related to RESTful web applications.

Tapas is not and never will be a full replacement for the AWS CLI. Only a small subset of AWS resources and usage patterns are supported.

If you are already comfortable and happy with the official AWS CLI, then Tapas may not have anything to offer you. However, if you're new to AWS or are looking for a slightly simpler way to kickstart small projects, then read on.


Tapas is designed to meet the following use cases and requirements.

Web Application And Microservice Focused

Tapas is targeted only at deploying web applications which consist of static CDN delivered content, Lambda backed RESTful APIs, and S3/DynamoDB persistence. It only supports AWS resources necessary for this use case.

Infrastructure As Code

Tapas merges CLI and templating by designing the CLI in such a way that multiple invokations composed in a shell script can serve as a resource provisioning template.

See additional information on templates.

Secure By Default

Tapas makes secure choices whenever possible.

  • Encryption in-flight.
    • Always use HTTPS for CloudFront distributions and API Gateway endpoints.
  • Encryption at-rest.
    • Always use server side encryption for S3 buckets and DynamoDB tables.
  • Principal of least privilege.
    • Always make S3 buckets private and block public ACLs.

Getting Started

Configure AWS credentials and region.

aws configure

Install Tapas.

npm install @smallinfinity/tapas -g

See the Tapas help text for command line usage information.

tapas --help
tapas <command> --help


Resource Management

Tapas resource management calls are designed to be upserts, meaning they will create a resource if it doesn't exist, or update a resource to match the current call parameters. Repeated calls which reference the same resource are not additive. For instance, you can't call tapas role-policy MyRole <policy> more than once to add policies one at a time, because each call will replace the policies attached to the MyRole role.
