Serverless WSGI

npm package

serverless Build Status Coverage Status Dependency Status Dev Dependency Status

A Serverless v1.x plugin to build your deploy Python WSGI applications using Serverless. Compatible WSGI application frameworks include Flask, Django and Pyramid - for a complete list, see: http://wsgi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/frameworks.html.

Features

Install

npm install --save serverless-wsgi

Add the plugin to your serverless.yml file and set the WSGI application:

plugins:
  - serverless-wsgi

Flask configuration example

This example assumes that you have intialized your application as app inside api.py.

project
├── api.py
├── requirements.txt
└── serverless.yml

api.py

A regular Flask application.

from flask import Flask
app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route("/cats")
def cats():
    return "Cats"


@app.route("/dogs/<id>")
def dog(id):
    return "Dog"

serverless.yml

Load the plugin and set the custom.wsgi.app configuration in serverless.yml to the module path of your Flask application.

All functions that will use WSGI need to have wsgi.handler set as the Lambda handler and use the default lambda-proxy integration for API Gateway. This configuration example treats API Gateway as a transparent proxy, passing all requests directly to your Flask application, and letting the application handle errors, 404s etc.

service: example

provider:
  name: aws
  runtime: python2.7

plugins:
  - serverless-wsgi

functions:
  api:
    handler: wsgi.handler
    events:
      - http: ANY /
      - http: ANY {proxy+}

custom:
  wsgi:
    app: api.app

requirements.txt

Add Flask to the application bundle.

Flask==0.12.2

Deployment

Simply run the serverless deploy command as usual:

$ sls deploy
Serverless: Packaging Python WSGI handler...
Serverless: Packaging required Python packages...
Serverless: Packaging service...
Serverless: Removing old service versions...
Serverless: Uploading CloudFormation file to S3...
Serverless: Uploading service .zip file to S3...
Serverless: Updating Stack...
Serverless: Checking Stack update progress...
..........
Serverless: Stack update finished...

Other frameworks

Set custom.wsgi.app in serverless.yml according to your WSGI callable:

Usage

Automatic requirement packaging

You’ll need to include any packages that your application uses in the bundle that’s deployed to AWS Lambda. This plugin helps you out by doing this automatically, as long as you specify your required packages in a requirements.txt file in the root of your Serverless service path:

Flask==0.12.2
requests==2.18.3

For more information, see https://pip.readthedocs.io/en/1.1/requirements.html.

You can use the requirement packaging functionality of serverless-wsgi without the WSGI handler itself by including the plugin in your serverless.yml configuration, without specifying the custom.wsgi.app setting. This will omit the WSGI handler from the package, but include any requirements specified in requirements.txt.

If you don’t want to use automatic requirement packaging you can set custom.wsgi.packRequirements to false:

custom:
  wsgi:
    app: api.app
    packRequirements: false

For a more advanced approach to packaging requirements, consider using https://github.com/UnitedIncome/serverless-python-requirements.

Python version

Python is used for packaging requirements and serving the app when invoking sls wsgi serve. By default, the current runtime setting is expected to be the name of the Python binary in PATH, for instance python3.6. If this is not the name of your Python binary, override it using the pythonBin option:

custom:
  wsgi:
    app: api.app
    pythonBin: python3

Local server

For convenience, a sls wsgi serve command is provided to run your WSGI application locally. This command requires the werkzeug Python package to be installed, and acts as a simple wrapper for starting werkzeug’s built-in HTTP server.

By default, the server will start on port 5000.

$ sls wsgi serve
 * Running on http://localhost:5000/ (Press CTRL+C to quit)
 * Restarting with stat
 * Debugger is active!

Configure the port using the -p parameter:

$ sls wsgi serve -p 8000
 * Running on http://localhost:8000/ (Press CTRL+C to quit)
 * Restarting with stat
 * Debugger is active!

Explicit routes

If you’d like to be explicit about which routes and HTTP methods should pass through to your application, see the following example:

service: example

provider:
  name: aws
  runtime: python2.7

plugins:
  - serverless-wsgi

functions:
  api:
    handler: wsgi.handler
    events:
      - http:
          path: cats
          method: get
          integration: lambda-proxy
      - http:
          path: dogs/{id}
          method: get
          integration: lambda-proxy

custom:
  wsgi:
    app: api.app

Custom domain names

If you use custom domain names with API Gateway, you might have a base path that is at the beginning of your path, such as the stage (/dev, /stage, /prod). You can pass in an API_GATEWAY_BASE_PATH environment variable so your WSGI app can handle it correctly.

The example below uses the serverless-domain-manager plugin to handle custom domains in API Gateway:

service: example

provider:
  name: aws
  runtime: python2.7
  environment:
    API_GATEWAY_BASE_PATH: ${self:custom.customDomain.basePath}

plugins:
  - serverless-wsgi
  - serverless-domain-manager

functions:
  api:
    handler: wsgi.handler
    events:
      - http: ANY /
      - http: ANY {proxy+}

custom:
  wsgi:
    app: api.app
  customDomain:
    basePath: ${opt:stage}
    domainName: mydomain.name.com
    stage: ${opt:stage}
    createRoute53Record: true

Thanks

Thanks to Zappa, which has been both the inspiration and source of several implementations that went into this project.

Thanks to chalice for the requirement packaging implementation.
