    💥 SST makes it easy to build serverless apps. Set breakpoints and test your functions locally. https://serverless-stack.com

    So you start building using serverless principles, and you discover the Serverless framework. Great ! You will discover here another option, that I consider superior in multiple area, the Serverless Stack (SST). I will first introduce some basic concepts for beginners, then I will expose the main difference between the solutions. Let's dig into this!

    Here is an example file (from serverless/examples repo):

  • GitHub repo aws-cdk

    The AWS Cloud Development Kit is a framework for defining cloud infrastructure in code

    The framework is relying on CDK which is an AWS tool designed to "define your cloud application resources using familiar programming languages". Behind the scene CDK is allowing you to write code that will be translated to CloudFormation template files. It's generally much more compact to write CDK that the equivalent CloudFormation template file!
