Serverless Framework Python REST API on AWS

This template demonstrates how to make a simple REST API with Python running on AWS Lambda and API Gateway using the Serverless Framework v1.

This template does not include any kind of persistence (database). For a more advanced examples check out the examples repo which includes DynamoDB, Mongo, Fauna and other examples.

Setup

Run this command to initialize a new project in a new working directory.

sls init aws-python-rest-api

Usage

Deploy

This example is made to work with the Serverless Framework dashboard which includes advanced features like CI/CD, monitoring, metrics, etc.

$ serverless login
$ serverless deploy

To deploy without the dashboard you will need to remove org and app fields from the serverless.yml, and you won’t have to run sls login before deploying.

Invoke the function locally.

serverless invoke local --function hello

Invoke the function

curl https://xxxxxxxxx.execute-api.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/dev/
