    After building out a GPT powered endpoint, I wanted a low cost way of hosting it. At the time, I came across the serverless-express project, but no actual starter kits that would allow me to deploy it.

    Amplify gives an option of using a template and linking the API Endpoint with the Lambda and a connected DynamoDB table. I selected the template, Serverless Espress, which provided a lot of code in the template, though the majority of it felt overly bloated for what was effectively CRUD functionality.
  • Moving from Apollo to Vanilla GraphQL

    With that in mind, the goal of this library is to be as lightweight as possible. There are other libraries out there that can handle express -> serverless mutation. See Serverless Express for that. If you want to rewrite as little code as possible, that is your best solution. With that being said, if the sole purpose of express is middleware and is only hosting a one-endpoint GraphQL server, I recommend rewriting to utilize this library.

    To get Express to run on AWS Lambda the Node http stack needs to be emulated, or a full-blown HTTP/TCP server needs to be started and proxied to. Each of these workarounds require a ton of code from libraries like serverless-express.
  • Serverless backend (AWS S3/API GW/Lambda) vs. Node/Express?

    Express is a framework/software. Lambda is compute. You can run express in Lambda. Ive done this and it was great. Check out The cool thing is that it's portable - you can build for one compute environment, and move it to another if it doesnt suit

    I’d second the vote for AWS Amplify. If you don’t want to go full ‘serverless’ with your api you can use something like serverless-express which will run your express app in a lambda. It’s fairly straightforward to get set up. The serverless framework is also pretty good but you don’t really need it, AWS has all the build tools you need. No need to add extra layers/dependencies if you don’t need to.
