The @serverless-stack/resources package provides a set of additional CDK constructs necessary to build an SST app.


This package is usually installed together with @serverless-stack/cli.

# With npm
npm install @serverless-stack/cli @serverless-stack/resources --save-exact
# Or with Yarn
yarn add @serverless-stack/cli @serverless-stack/resources --exact

Note that, the version of these packages should be kept in sync.

Importing Constructs

You can either import specific constructs in your app.

SST Constructs

Low-Level Constructs
