AWS OpsWorks
User Guide (API Version 2013-02-18)

Getting Started with a Sample Stack

This walkthrough shows how to use AWS OpsWorks Stacks to quickly create a sample Node.js application environment with just a few mouse clicks and without writing code. When you are done, you have an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance running Chef 12, a Node.js HTTP server, and a web app that you can use to interact with Twitter and leave comments on a web page.


Because completing this walkthrough automatically creates an instance with a type of c3.large, you cannot use this walkthrough, or the Sample Stack creation tool in AWS OpsWorks Stacks, in the AWS Free Tier.
