Working with files in Amazon CodeCommit repositories

In CodeCommit, a file is a version-controlled, self-contained piece of information available to you and other users of the repository and branch where the file is stored. You can organize your repository files with a directory structure, just as you would on a computer. Unlike your computer, CodeCommit automatically tracks every change to a file. You can compare versions of a file and store different versions of a file in different repository branches.

To add or edit a file in a repository, you can use a Git client. You can also use the CodeCommit console, the Amazon CLI, or the CodeCommit API.
