            Purpose of "prepare" method of AWS CDK constructs?
            Asked 2021-Nov-23 at 15:50

            TL;DR: What is the purpose and function of prepare(): void method of AWS CDK's Construct class? How and when am I supposed to use/avoid it?

            The documentation on prepare() says:



            Answered 2021-Nov-23 at 15:50

            I've got an answer from one of the contributors of aws-cdk.

            As they have pointed out, prepare() is deprecated, and it is about to be removed anyway, so no point in using it:

            I think the most important implication is constructs you add during the execution of this method will themselves not be prepared (so you shouldn't be adding any constructs that rely on that happening).

            prepare is a method of last resort, for constructs to fix up their own state just before rendering in some conditions (for example, to render default values if certain mutator methods did not get called).

            prepare() is deprecated and will be removed in v2. I would not suggest relying on it.

            As for setting up everything in the constructor, the advice was to treat inner constructs' definitions as part of the initialization of a given parent construct:

            I understand you might have psychological aversion to doing a lot of work in the constructor. Try to see construct definitions like a set of declarations that just happen to produce an initialized object (where our Stack definitely has a Table and the compiler can verify that this member got assigned in the constructor so we can rely on this in the rest of the program).



            What is the purpose of app.synth() in AWS CDK?
            Asked 2021-Jul-20 at 20:58

            What is the purpose of the app.synth() line in AWS CDK applications? For example it can be seen here on line 29:

            I have looked at the CDK docs but I cannot find what the actual purpose of that function is. As I understand it, the app is automatically synthesized upon cdk deploy or cdk synth. I also took the example shown in repo linked above, commented out the app.synth() line, deployed it, and it seemed to work as expected. Therefore I'm wondering if I'm missing something when it comes to the purpose of app.synth()



            Answered 2021-Jul-20 at 20:58

            cdk synth only constructs your CloudFormation template. It does not deploy (create actual resources) it to AWS. You can take the template constructed, deploy it manually in CFN console, edit or inspect.

            cdk deploy is going to construct the template and deploy it to AWS as well.

            People use synth with deploy because it is a good practice:

            It is optional (though good practice) to synthesize before deploying. The AWS CDK synthesizes your stack before each deployment.



            How to package dependencies using @aws-cdk/pipelines module construct? Getting error TS2307
            Asked 2020-Oct-30 at 13:14

            I've been experimenting with using the new AWS CDK pipelines construct (, and have successfully setup a couple of projects, including following the blog post announcement here:

            However, as soon as I try to add a dependency to my lambdas the build fails with a

            lib/lambda/handler.ts(2,24): error TS2307: Cannot find module 'stripe' or its corresponding type declarations.

            I have installed a package.json file and the node_modules in the directory with the lambdas, tried zipping the lambdas and node_modules, tried uploading the zip file with the console, and tried getting the 'buildCommand' during the 'synthAction' step to install the dependencies. Nothing works.

            The asset appears to get created in the cdk.out directory, and code changes are being uploaded, but node_modules themselves never get packaged along with the lambda functions.

            I am using the 'SimpleSynthAction.standardNpmSynth' action, along with an 'npm run build' command in the 'buildCommand' step.

            I've looked at Lambda can't find modules from outer folders when deployed with CDK, How to install dependencies of lambda functions upon cdk build with AWS CDK and without luck.

            What am I missing?



            Answered 2020-Oct-30 at 13:14

            Looks like the issue has to do with bundling. I abandoned the 'all-in on CDK approach' and went back to using a SAM/CDK hybrid, but this new blog post suggests bundling is the answer.


            Specifically, it references this construct, which likely would have helped in my situation:

            Something to try in future.

            CDK doesn't have backwards compatibility in minor version upgrades.
