Run AWS Lambda functions locally
run_lambda is a Python package for running Python AWS Lambda functions locally. It offers a Python module for automated testing of Lambda functions, as well as a command-line interface for ad-hoc local invocations.
Doesn’t something like this already exist?
Not exactly. There are other programs for locally running Python Lambda functions. However, all of the other utilities (that I know of) only provide a command-line tool. A command-line tool is great for quick manual invocations. However, if you want to create robust, automated tests for your Lambda functions, a Python module that you can import and call is more appropriate. run_lambda is unique because it offers both a simple command-line tool for manual invocations, and an importable Python module for automated tests.
