Serverless Print Dots

A Serverless plugin for printing dots in Serverless log during deployment to indicate progress and prevent timeouts in CI/CD platforms.

Use Case

Deploying or updating CloudFront distributions on AWS can take about 20-30 minutes to complete, exceeding some CI/CD platforms' timeout limit, causing a false failed build while deployment is still in progress on AWS. This plugin prints a dot in the Serverless console at intervals to create a diff in logs and therefore prevent timeouts.

Setup

  1. Add dependency to package.json:

    yarn add -D serverless-print-dots

    or

    npm install -D serverless-print-dots
  2. Add the plugin to serverless.yml file:

    plugins:
      - serverless-print-dots
