The library infrastructure-scripts provides the scripts command.

Run it with one of the arguments specified below and the relative path to the file that exports the your app-component, e.g. src/index.tsx.

Scripts enable you to build, start (offline), deploy, and attach a domain to your infrastructure-components-based project.


The build-script prepares your project for local start or deployment:

scripts build src/index.tsx

If you prefer using the usual npm run build command for building, simply add the following script to your package.json file:

"scripts": {
  "build": "scripts build src/index.tsx"

The build process adds further scripts to your package.json. These let you start your software stack offline, start hot development, and deploy it.

Which scripts are created depends on your app-component and its <Environment />- and <WebApp />-components.

Look at the app-components for more details on the created scripts:

Run Offline

Run scripts {your_stackName} src/index.tsx or npm run {your_stackName} to start your <SinglePageApp /> or your <WebApp /> within an <IsomorphicApp /> in hot-development-mode.

Wait until the console says that your app is running and open localhost:3000 in your browser.

Changes to your source code become effective immediately in this mode. Just edit your source code and reload your page in the browser. Note that an <IsomorphicApp /> does not run with a backend (e.g. middlewares) in this mode!

If you want to stop the app, use “ctrl-c” (or whatever command your console-application uses to interrupt a running script).


The script npm run start-{your_environment_name} starts your <IsomorphicApp /> locally (offline).

Open your the url localhost:3000 in a browser and you can see your application in action. Have a look at the console of your development environment for outputs made on server-side (e.g. middlewares)

Note: Changes at your source code require running npm run build before they become effective in this mode!


Once you ran the build script, your package.json will contain a script for each environment your app contains:

npm run deploy-{your_environment_name}

From here, the scripts create the whole infrastructure stack on your AWS account. You’ll get back an URL that now serves your app.

Note: This script may take some time to complete!


Have a look at our tutorial on how to register and prepare a domain within AWS.

If you specified an <Environment/>-component with a ready-to-use-domain and once you deployed your app, you can initialize the domain with the following command:

npm run domain-{your_environment_name}

Note: You only need to run this command once. But it may take quite some time to complete!
