The Serverless Framework – Build applications on AWS Lambda and other next-gen cloud services, that auto-scale and only charge you when they run. This lowers the total cost of running and operating your apps, enabling you to build more and manage less.

The Serverless Framework is a command-line tool that uses easy and approachable YAML syntax to deploy both your code and cloud infrastructure needed to make tons of serverless application use-cases. It's a multi-language framework that supports Node.js, Typescript, Python, Go, Java, and more. It's also completely extensible via over 1,000 plugins that can add more serverless use-cases and workflows to the Framework.

Actively maintained by Serverless Inc.


Quick Start

Install Via NPM:

npm install -g serverless

Set Up Your AWS Account Credentials:

The Serverless Framework deploys to your own AWS account. You'll need to enable Serverless Framework to deploy to your AWS account by giving it access. Here is a guide to help you set up your credentials securely

Create A Service:

A "Service" is the Framework's project or app concept. You can create one from scratch or select an existing template by running.


Go through the onboarding flow and then navigate into the newly created directory.

cd my-new-service

Deploy A Service:

Use this when you have made changes to your Functions, Events or Resources in serverless.yml or you simply want to deploy all changes within your Service at the same time.

serverless deploy

Deploy A Function:

Use this to quickly upload and overwrite your AWS Lambda code on AWS, allowing you to develop faster.

serverless deploy function -f hello

Invoke The Function On AWS:

Invokes an AWS Lambda Function on AWS and returns logs.

serverless invoke -f hello -l

Invoke The Function Locally:

Invokes an AWS Lambda Function on your local machine and returns logs.

serverless invoke local -f hello -l

Stream Function Logs:

Open up a separate tab in your console and stream all logs for a specific Function using this command.

serverless logs -f hello -t

Remove The Service:

Removes all Functions, Events and Resources from your AWS account.

serverless remove
