How to get a list of all Cloudformation types in Javascript

The AWS CDK has a JSON file that describes available AWS types. You can install it like so:

npm install --save @aws-cdk/cfnspec

Retrieve the types:

const cdk = require('@aws-cdk/cfnspec');
 
console.log(_.keys(cdk.specification().ResourceTypes));

Example output:
