CloudCatalog resources are either enriched or not-enriched with information from AWS.

If you would like to add enrichment to your resource and contribute to CloudCatalog here is a guide on how to get started.


The @cloudcatalog/cli import-resource command supports many resources, to enrich a resource you will need too:

  1. Add a new file to the resources directory /packages/cloudcatalog-cli/src/resources

  2. Export functions getData, getMarkdown and getFileName. Look at Lambda for an example

    1. getData - Returns the frontmatter for the resource type
    2. getMarkdown - Returns default markdown for this resource.
    3. getFileName - Returns the name of the file that will get written to cloudcatalog.
  3. Use the AWS SDK to enrich a resource and return this information in the getData function.

  4. Write tests for your new resource you can find examples here

Updating documentation

Once you are happy with your new resource, and have written tests. Raise a pull request and we can support writing documentation for your new resource.
