  • Serverless Templates for AWS and Python

    Another alternative is Zappa which is built-in Python Serverless Framework and it serves only that runtime on AWS.
  • How to make Django package smaller for Serverless deployment
    3 projects | /r/django | 28 May 2022
    Also, Zappa core team is looking for contributors to manage the project. I don't know why someone would leave a project like this. It had nearly 12k stars on original repo here and has around 1.7k on the new one.
  • Securing AWS Lambda Function URLs
    2 projects | | 21 May 2022
    I used to work for a startup that quickly grew to become one of the biggest Lambda users in my country (according to AWS). The entire business was serverless, not just Lambda but backend DynamoDB, APIGW, Cloudfront, etc. There was maybe 2 EC2 instances in the whole company.

    Having seen what that model of development can do from an operational/security/agility/scalability/efficiency perspective, I think the comments on HN about serverless saying "it's just CGI" or that they could do something similar without vendor lockin are honestly laughably ignorant. If you haven't messed with Zappa ( or Serverless Framework ( at least a little you are missing out.

  • How do I reduce request size?
    2 projects | /r/django | 12 Nov 2021

  • Best Hosting platform for hosting multiple FLASK apps?
    2 projects | /r/flask | 10 Aug 2021
    I like deploying on AWS Fargate or AWS Lambda using zappa for very low-cost deployments. Because Lambda has a (always) free tier usage, you can get away with hosting many sites for next-to-nothing with Zappa.
  • Building A Word Association Network from Scratch
    2 projects | | 5 Jan 2021
    While Lambda functions were rather complicated to set up in the beginning, with the help of the handy Zappa library and tons of StackOverflow posts, I was able to build One Word Domains' very own lambda function that would find the most similar words for a given query and return them in JSON format.
