AWS Lambda Layer with AWS CLI

This module exports a single class called AwsCliLayer which is a lambda.Layer that bundles the AWS CLI.

Any Lambda Function that uses this layer must use a Python 3.x runtime.


# AwsCliLayer bundles the AWS CLI in a lambda layer
from aws_cdk.lambda_layer_awscli import AwsCliLayer

# fn: lambda.Function

fn.add_layers(AwsCliLayer(self, "AwsCliLayer"))

The CLI will be installed under /opt/awscli/aws.


This module bundles AWS cli v1. To use AWS cli v2, you can use the external module awscdk-asset-awscli.
