Development workflow in a serverless world
3 projects | reddit.com/r/serverless | 8 Nov 2021
Hi, founder of Webiny: https://www.webiny.com/ here. With Webiny you can build enterprise-grade serverless applications. Webiny comes with numerous scaffolds, from GraphQL APIs to full-stack applications. The architecture is tuned both for performance and scale. Webiny caters to the whole development workflow, from IaC, watch functions (enabling cloud-native development) to deploying your application into multiple environments on AWS. The project is open-source. In case you check it out, I would love to know what you think of it.
Creating a multi-tenant serverless SaaS stack for myself, wondering if other founders would buy it cheap?

I've spent 2 years building an open-source serverless application framework and a CMS on top which has multi-tenant features (https://www.webiny.com). A few pieces of advice I can share, are: 1. Plan well how you want to integrate an IdP. Some IdPs like OKTA are very flexible and play well in multi-tenant environments. Others like Cognito, well they have their limits, especially if you're looking at supporting anything more than a simple flat hierarchy of tenants. 2. Data separation is also ticky. You have to do it on the application data layer side, and not on the database itself. Doing it on the database itself, you'll quickly run into AWS limits. 3. Raising money -> there's a ton of money in the market. With a good deck and a good team, you can raise the capital. But that's just the start of the story :)

Need a roadmap to learn backend and serverless architecture
1 project | reddit.com/r/Backend | 16 Sep 2021
There are various pieces in serverless like application code and serverless infrastructure. In real-word, complete serverless applications are built using multiple serverless services by a cloud provider. If we talk about AWS, Lambda, API Gateway, S3, etc., services used and deployed. So there need some effort and a steep learning curve for understanding and building applications serverless. The popular approach for building serverless applications is with open source frameworks like Webiny. It allows developers to adopt the serverless with minimum effort. By the way, I worked with Webiny, hope these details will help you, thanks!
Ask HN: Which framework do you use for your APIs (Node.js or Ruby)

Maybe Webiny (https://www.webiny.com, https://www.webiny.com/docs) could be the solution you're looking for! ;)
It's designed to make serverless application development as easy as possible.
For example, with the built-in scaffolds (https://www.webiny.com/docs/how-to-guides/scaffolding/introd...), you can pretty quickly provision a new React application, GraphQL API, or even a full-stack application. Once that's up, further development is as easy as simply starting the "webiny watch" command (https://www.webiny.com/docs/how-to-guides/use-watch-command/). It will make sure that all of the changes that you perform, both on application and cloud infrastructure code, are automatically deployed into the cloud for you. In a way, this mimics the good-old local development experience.
And there's a lot more, but I'd probably pollute the thread. :)
If you're interested, feel free to ping me, I'd be glad to assist with any questions / feedback you might have.
P.S. Disclaimer: I work at Webiny :)

Launch HN: Webiny (YC W21) – Open-source serverless framework with a drop-in CMS
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 11 Mar 2021
Hi, Sven and Pavel here - we're building a self-hosted, open-source framework for developers that want to create serverless applications and websites.
After 10 years of running a web development agency and delivering over 100 projects, we tried many different approaches to building apps and websites. When we looked at the patterns for most of the projects we delivered, it was always a combination of custom business logic and a way to manage content, like pages, news articles, and similar. Looking at the options available on the market, we either had frameworks for building the custom logic or ready-made CMS solutions for managing the content. There was no combination for when we wanted to do both. And this is one of the biggest pains we had. We would either force custom logic inside a CMS and break things or make them hard to maintain, or use a framework and take much longer to deliver a project since we'd end up building a custom CMS and making the whole thing more expensive to the client. On top of that, we were just tired of constantly spinning up servers, managing container images, worrying about uptime, network, and security issues, and paying for resources we were not utilizing 100%.
Looking for options, we discovered serverless. The premise of not having infrastructure to manage sounded really intriguing. Having fault-tolerant resources that scale automatically when you need them with consumption-based pricing that cost up to 80% less than virtual machines sounded like the ideal solution...until we tried to build something with it. It was almost impossible. All the existing frameworks and CMS options are designed for a "server environment", and couldn't be used to build solutions in a serverless environment. The only tutorials available at that time covered how to resize an image with a Lambda function. Besides that, serverless requires a cognitive change of how you approach code and infrastructure.
In all those problems we saw an opportunity. Over a course of a year, we built a framework that allows anyone to quickly build serverless applications without battling all the challenges that come with it. Things like rendering and caching pages, optimizing the cold-start times, debugging function calls, managing connections between functions and the database, CI/CD setup, and many more. The framework comes with a GraphQL API, Admin UI, ACL, CLI for deployment and scaffolding, and more.
Because our passion is also tied to content management systems, we decided to eat our own dog food and build a serverless CMS using our own framework. Webiny Serverless CMS uses Lambda functions, API Gateway, DynamoDB, Elasticsearch (the only non-serverless component at the moment) and S3. It scales automatically together with the demand, requires minimal maintenance, and costs a fraction when compared to solutions running on virtual machines or containers. It includes a GraphQL API, asset management, and a no-code builder for static pages and forms. It takes 2 commands to install and configure the whole thing. Today it runs only on AWS, but we plan to introduce the support for other clouds in the future. With our CMS, we hope people will be more confident in the abilities serverless brings to the market, especially when building full-stack solutions. To put some numbers behind our product, we made a benchmark to demonstrate the performance and cost of a Webiny full-stack serverless application.
Both the framework and the CMS are free and open-source under the MIT license. We do have a paid enterprise offering for those that require support and additional features .
