Generic Guardian flavoured AWS CDK components
Guardian CDK Library
The AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) is an open-source software development framework to define cloud infrastructure in code and provision it through AWS CloudFormation.
@guardian/cdk builds on CDK to provide Guardian-specific patterns and
constructs. It is an opinionated and secure-by-default way to describe and
provision your AWS resources.

@guardian/cdk expects certain Parameter Store values to be present - for
example, VPC IDs, and the location of dist buckets. To check for account
readiness and fix any issues, run:
npx @guardian/[email protected] account-readiness --profile [profile]
Once you've confirmed that your account is ready, you can start provisioning your infrastructure.
