[Chapter 1] Lauching the demo: Page 22 "npm i"

On Page 22, there is a command “npm i” before launching cloudformation. Do I need npm (which is part of nodejs) to run the cloudformation?

Hi Peter, thanks for posting your question here. Indeed, you need to run npm i here. We are modularized CloudFormation templates (explained in more detail in chapter 3). With npm i you are installing these CloudFormation modules.
