I'm using the aws-code-deploy to deploy my code to AWS. I have various folders in my repo that I don't need in the upload stel (like .git, src and tests).
I noticed that the aws-s3-deploy pipe has the option to exclude certain folders using the EXTRA ARGS parameter, for instance like this:
EXTRA_ARGS: '--exclude=.git/* --exclude=src/* --exclude=tests/*
However, this doesn't seem to work for aws-code-deploy. Is there another way to exclude folders and files in the upload step?
The solution turned out to be excluding the folders in the zip command. Here's what I'm running now:
- cd app/../ && zip -r myapp.zip * .[^.]* -x 'tests/*' -x 'src/*' -x '.git/*' -x 'gulp/*'
This excludes the tests, src, gulp and .git folders.
@rickhaasteren hi. Thanks for your question.
I did not found here how to exclude some folders from deploy. So i doubt we can implement such feature in aws-code-deploy pipe. Keep in mind that EXTRA_ARGS in aws-s3-deploy and aws-code-deploy are not the same variables.
After some investigation i found this article. Maybe it can help you.
Also when you do upload with aws-code-deploy you can provide needed ZIP_FILE (with excluded directories) before you do deploy with aws-code-deploy.
