Project description

Handle AWS Lambda events.

Events are passed to handlers for processing. Each event is passed to the handler in this order:

  • Handler defined in the event

  • HTTP events handler (for WSGI applications)

  • SQS events handler (if configured)

  • Default handler (if configured)

  • Logger handler (if no default is defined)

Provided Handlers

  • pd_aws_lambda.handlers.wsgi.handler: convert HttpAPI requests to WSGI environs.

  • Run shell commands.

  • pd_aws_lambda.handlers.logger.handler: log the received event and context.


  1. Add pd_aws_lambda to your application dependencies.

    poetry add pd_aws_lambda
  2. Set the required environment variables according to your needs in your Python Deploy application configuration.

    # Python path to the WSGI application that will handle HTTP requests.
    # Python path to the handler for SQS events.
    # Python path to the default fallback handler.

Custom handlers

A handler is a python function that receives an event and a context and does something with them. It can return a value if it makes sense for the type of event. For example, HttpAPI handlers like the one we use to call your wsgi application (pd_aws_lambda.handlers.wsgi.handler) should return a dictionary compatible with the AWS HttpAPI to form an HTTP response.

def handler(event, context):
    I handle AWS Lambda invocations.

    I print the received event and context.
    print("The event:", event)
    print("The context:", context)
