Project Description

The project involves deploying a Node JS app on AWS ECS Fargate and AWS ECR. Read More about the tech stack here

🔶 Task:

  • Get a NodeJs application from GitHub.

  • Create EC2 Instance and Install AWS CLI and Docker:

      echo "AWS CLI Installation"
      echo "***********************"
      sudo apt install -y unzip
      curl "" -o ""
      sudo ./aws/install
      echo "Docker installation"
      echo "***********************"
      sudo apt update
      sudo apt install -y apt-transport-https ca-certificates curl software-properties-common
      curl -fsSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg
      echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-archive-keyring.gpg] $(lsb_release -cs) stable" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker.list > /dev/null
      sudo apt update
      sudo apt install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli
      sudo systemctl start docker
      sudo systemctl enable docker
      sudo usermod -aG docker ubuntu
      sudo reboot

  • Clone the GitHub Repository:

     git clone

  • Configure AWS ECR:

    Navigate to the AWS Elastic Container Registry (ECR) and create a repository.

    Check the repo has been created.

  • Create an IAM user in the AWS Management Console and attach the required policies for our project:

  • Install the AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) on the AWS EC2 instance :

      aws configure

  • Navigate to the ECR repository created earlier and select View push commands:

    Retrieve an authentication token and authenticate your Docker client to your registry. Use the AWS CLI:

    Build your Docker image using the following command:

      docker build -t chandreshpatle28/node-todo-app .

  • After the build completes, tag your image so you can push the image to this repository:

      docker tag chandreshpatle28/node-todo-app:latest

    Run the following command to push this image to your newly created AWS repository:

      docker push

  • Configure AWS ECS:

  • Create a task definition for your cluster:

  • Deploy and Run the Task:

    Ensure port 8000 is open in the Security Group used in our task:

  • Click "Run Task" to start running your Node.js app on ECS Fargate! :

    In conclusion, this project successfully demonstrated the deployment of a Node.js application on AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS) Fargate using Amazon Elastic Container Registry (ECR).
