    Project mention: when should I use api-gateway aws vs self written nodejs api | | 2023-02-24

    Does anyone have any success with API Gateway/Lamba for local environment with hot-reloading? I was playing around with “sam local start-api” a few weeks ago with along with CDK but it doesn’t seem like hot-reloading is supported, and need to manually restart for code changes to reflect, which is currently stopping me from trying out the API Gateway/Lamba combo further due to inefficient DX. Here’s a GitHub issue about it:

    Hi! We provide an on-prem version (as part of our enterprise tier); but better yet the SaaS solution itself is hybrid- meaning we provide a microservice for authorization for you (aka the PDP), and it answers all the queries locally from memory cache - which is great for security, but also latency (sub 10ms as a sidecar), and availability.

    Updates are done through OPAL ( - which has a a zero trust architecture (it sends instructions on how to get the data instead of the data itself) based on topics scoped with security tokens.
