Serverless simulation plugin

serverless Build Status npm version Coverage Status dependencies license

This is a proof of concept to see if we can replicate Amazon API Gateway using docker images to run lambda

Features:

Prerequisite

Getting Started

Install the plugin

npm i --save-dev serverless-plugin-simulate

Configure your service to use the plugin

service: my-service
provider:
  name: aws
  runtime: nodejs4.3 # python2.7 is also supported

# this is optional configurations
# servicesPathDest is use for the case u want to compile all your src and out
# put to another folder like dist
#
# services allows specifying a docker-compose.yml file and (optional)
# projectName. This will start the docker-compose stack when simulate is run.
# If projectName is specified, it will be used when running docker-compose,
# and the default docker-compose network will be passed to lambda docker commands
# allowing all lambdas to access any hosts defined in docker-compose services
custom:
  simulate:
    dist: dist
    services:
      file: docker-compose.yml
      # will use: $ docker-compose --project-name myproject ...
      # and:      $ docker --network myproject_default ...
      projectName: myproject

  - serverless-plugin-simulate

If you do not need to chain functions locally you can just run the API Gateway simulation by itself.

sls simulate apigateway -p 5000

Using the Lambda simulator

If you want to chain functions locally, you need to use the Lambda Simulator.

Run the Lambda Simulation

sls simulate lambda -p 4000

Run the API Gateway Simulation

sls simulate apigateway -p 5000 --lambda-port 4000

Use the environment variables to configure the AWS SDK to use the local Lambda simulation. You can use the same technique with any other AWS SDK.

const AWS = require('aws-sdk');

const endpoint = process.env.SERVERLESS_SIMULATE ?
  process.env.SERVERLESS_SIMULATE_LAMBDA_ENDPOINT :
  undefined

const lambda = new AWS.Lambda({ endpoint })
const handler = (event, context, callback) => {
  const params = {
    FunctionName: 'my-other-function',
    Payload: JSON.stringify({ foo: 'bar' })
  }
  lambda.invoke(params, (err, result) => {
    if (err) {
      return callback(err)
    }

    callback(null, {
      statusCode: 200,
      body: result.Payload
    })
  })
}

This would not be possible without lambci
