Host a Static Website on Amazon S3

View Code Deploy

A static website that uses S3’s website support. For a detailed walkthrough of this example, see the tutorial Static Website on AWS S3.

Deploying and running the program

Note: some values in this example will be different from run to run. These values are indicated with ***.

  1. Create a new stack:

    $ pulumi stack init website-testing
  2. Set the AWS region:

    $ pulumi config set aws:region us-west-2
  3. Run pulumi up to preview and deploy changes. After the preview is shown you will be prompted if you want to continue or not.

    $ pulumi up
    Previewing update (dev):
        Type                    Name                  Plan       
    +   pulumi:pulumi:Stack     aws-py-s3-folder-dev  create     
    +   ├─ aws:s3:Bucket        s3-website-bucket     create     
    +   ├─ aws:s3:BucketObject  index.html            create     
    +   ├─ aws:s3:BucketObject  python.png            create     
    +   ├─ aws:s3:BucketObject  favicon.png           create     
    +   └─ aws:s3:BucketPolicy  bucket-policy         create     
        + 6 to create
    Do you want to perform this update?
    > yes
  4. To see the resources that were created, run pulumi stack output:

    $ pulumi stack output
    Current stack outputs (2):
        OUTPUT                                           VALUE
        bucket_name                                      s3-website-bucket-***
        website_url                                      ***
  5. To see that the S3 objects exist, you can either use the AWS Console or the AWS CLI:

    $ aws s3 ls $(pulumi stack output bucket_name)
    2018-04-17 15:40:47      13731 favicon.png
    2018-04-17 15:40:48        249 index.html
  6. Open the site URL in a browser to see both the rendered HTML, the favicon, and Python splash image:

    $ pulumi stack output website_url
  7. To clean up resources, run pulumi destroy and answer the confirmation question at the prompt.
