Deploying to AWS Elastic Beanstalk


I have a new hello world type application that uses react on rails. I am trying to deploy it to AWS with Elastic Beanstalk. During the deployment process I’m getting the following error and stack trace. Does anyone have suggestions for deploying to Elastic Beanstalk or best practices to make it work? Thanks in advance.

I look forward to your feedback. The team at largely has experience with Heroku, where the deployment “just works” out of the box.

BTW – if webpack is not found, you probably did not install it!

You need to run something like yarn install or npm install early in your deployment.
