AWS CDK Toolkit

Next, we’ll install the AWS CDK Toolkit. The toolkit is a command-line utility which allows you to work with CDK apps.

Open a terminal session and run the following command:

  • Windows: you’ll need to run this as an Administrator
  • POSIX: on some systems you may need to run this with sudo
npm install -g aws-cdk

You can check the toolkit version:

$ cdk --version
1.21.1 (build 842cc5f)
