A helper lib for lambda based Custom Resources (AWS CloudFormation)

Project description


Python helper library for creation of Lambda based Custom Resource for AWS CloudFormation. The library allows the author to focus on the logic of creation/update/removal of the Custom Resource instead of the details of the request/response format that CloudFormation expects.


To install simply use pip:

pip install cfn-custom-resource

Basic usage

Here's how a basic Custom Resource can be created:

from cfn_custom_resource import lambda_handler, create, update, delete

def create(event, context):
  # .. provision resource ..

  # resource_id = ...
  # output_attribures = {} 

  return resource_id, output_attributes

def update(event, context):
  # .. update resource ..
  # if resource_id changed cloudformation would trigger delete 

  return resource_id, output_attributes

def delete(event, context):
  # .. cleanup ..
