Frontend Masters—Deploying Full Stack: Node.js & React on AWS

You should have the following completed on your computer before the workshop:

  • Have Node.js installed on your system. (Recommended: Use nvm.)
    • Unfortunately, you'll need to be on Node 9.x or earlier. Dependencies are hard and one of the dependencies of one of our dependencies is set to not allow Node 10.x.
    • Install yarn with brew install yarn.
  • Create an AWS account. (This will require a valid credit card.)
  • Install multi-factor authentication app (e.g. Authy, Google Authenticator, Duo).
  • Install the AWS CLI. (brew install awscli should do the trick. Otherwise, you'll need Python and PIP, which you can install using brew install python.)
  • Install the AWS Mobile Hub CLI: npm install -g awsmobile-cli or yarn global add awsmobile-cli.
  • Create a Travis CI account. (This should be as simple as logging in via GitHub).
  • Optional: Install the Travis CLI command-line tools: gem install travis -v 1.8.8 --no-rdoc --no-ri
  • Optional: We'll be registering a domain name during the workshop. You can skip this step if you want.

Hi Steve, I was following your course about React Node and AWS. however got stuck in the very beginning as the aws-exports.js file was not being generated inside source, but I could find that same file inside awsmobilejs/#current-backend-info folder .

So I copied that file and put in the src to check if it works but still it dint, Please help.

I get this error
