Curious what it takes to build a serverless API?

Raw Source code:โ€‹

https://github.com/mel3kings/startup-snippets/tree/main/blog/lambda

Serverless notesโ€‹

  • API gateway needs lambda to have this format in the response to not throw malformed exception:
    {
'statusCode': 200,
'headers': {
},
'body': json.dumps(response_list),
'isBase64Encoded': 'false'
}

Lambdaโ€‹

  • needs to deploy before testing
  • throttle request set to 1 for singleton

Api gatewayโ€‹

stages - relative path, needs to deploy first before it goes live

  • throttle request set to 1 for singleton
