Helps build AWS Lambda zip files for Python projects.

Project description

Code Climate Build Status codecov PyPI version

py-lambda-packer

A Python AWS Lambda packager. This projects is very loosely based on the work in serverless-wsgi.

NOTICE: This project is a work in progress and should be considered unstable.

Features:

  • Written to run under both Python 3.6 and 2.7.
  • Generates Python 3.6 and 2.7 AWS Lambda Deployment Packages, user configurable.
  • AWS Lambda Deployment Packages are generated in isolated, temporary virtualenvs.
  • Per project configuration files to cut down on typing.
  • Can be easily be included and integrated into other projects as a library.

Usage

Installation

Latest stable
$ pip install py-lambda-packer
Bleeding edge

To install directly the bleeding edge version from GitHub:

$ pip install git+https://github.com/digitalrounin/py-lambda-packer.git@master#egg=py-lambda-packer

To install a specific tag or branch, replace master in the URL of the previous command with the desired name.

Quick start

Quick example command to generate py-lambda-package.zip for upload to AWS as a Lambda Function

$ py-lambda-packer --requirement requirements.txt --package . \
    --python python3.6 --include LICENSE

Project configuration

Project configuration file are named py-lambda-packer.yaml in the base directory of your project. Here is an example:

virtualenv:
  python: python2.7
  pip:
    requirements:
      - requirements.txt
    packages:
      - .
      - Flask

packager:
  target: py-lambda-package.zip
  followlinks: true
  includes:
    - LICENSE
    - static/**
    - templates/**/*.html
  excludes:
    - static/**/*.tmp

To generate a configuration file, try the py-lambda-packer --generate-config command.

Todo list

  • Bump up code coverage limit back up to 80% and fix failing source files.
  • Add comments to configuration file created by py-lambda-packer   --generate-config.
  • Document the py-lambda-packer API so that it can be imported as a library into other projects.
  • Make the colorlog Python package optional to allow py-lambda-packer to be imported into other projects as a library more cleanly.
  • Plugin support.
  • Support building packages with C and C++ Python extensions. Thinking out loud… Spin up an EC2 instance on the fly via something like HashiCorp Packer, build, package, destroy instance.
  • Clean up Windows compatibility. (I do not have access to a Windows based system, so any contributions here would be greatly appreciated.)
  • Support packaging for other Function as a Service (FaaS) platforms provided by : Azure, Google Cloud, etc.
