Deploy Docker images pushed to AWS Elastic Container Registry

Using containers in AWS is very easy using ECS. When EKS arrives, there will be even more options for you to choose from. You create a cluster, task definitions and services and ECS figures our where to run your container on a EC2 instance. I even takes care of the Application Load Balancer. However, for deployment the options are quite limited. Of course you can control everything with CloudFormation or Terraform, but how does the automation work in practice? Code Pipeline supports the whole from Code to Deployment flow, but how do you deploy a new container when you get the image pushed to the AWS Elastic Container Registry and the source and creation of the image takes place somewhere else.
