AWS Copilot CLI
Build, Release and Operate Containerized Applications on AWS.
The AWS Copilot CLI is a tool for developers to build, release and operate production ready containerized applications
on AWS App Runner, Amazon ECS, and AWS Fargate.
Use Copilot to:
- Deploy production-ready, scalable services on AWS from a Dockerfile in one command.
- Add databases or inject secrets to your services.
- Grow from one microservice to a collection of related microservices in an application.
- Set up test and production environments, across regions and accounts.
- Set up CI/CD pipelines to release your services to your environments.
- Monitor and debug your services from your terminal.
To install with homebrew:
$ brew install aws/tap/copilot-cli
To install manually, we're distributing binaries from our GitHub releases:
Instructions for installing Copilot for your platform

curl -Lo copilot https://github.com/aws/copilot-cli/releases/latest/download/copilot-linux-arm64 && chmod +x copilot && sudo mv copilot /usr/local/bin/copilot && copilot --help
Invoke-WebRequest -OutFile 'C:\Program Files\copilot.exe' https://github.com/aws/copilot-cli/releases/latest/download/copilot-windows.exe
Make sure you have the AWS command line tool installed and have already run
aws configure before you start.
To get a sample app up and running in one command, run the following:
$ git clone [email protected]:aws-samples/aws-copilot-sample-service.git demo-app
$ cd demo-app
$ copilot init --app demo \
--name api \
--type 'Load Balanced Web Service' \
--dockerfile './Dockerfile' \
This will create a VPC, Application Load Balancer, an Amazon ECS Service with the sample app running on AWS Fargate.
This process will take around 8 minutes to complete - at which point you'll get a URL for your sample app running! 🚀
