Quickstart for debugging Python + AWS Lambda + Zappa

A sample application for debugging Python apps deployed in AWS Zappa using Rookout.

Before following this guide we recommend reading the basic Python + Lambda debugging guide.

This example is based on a plain Zappa app, with the following modifications applied:

  1. Set your Rookout token as an environment variable in zappa_settings.json:
    "dev": {
        "aws_environment_variables" : {"ROOKOUT_TOKEN": "<token>"}
  1. Add the rook SDK dependancy to your requirements.txt Zappa file.

  2. Add the following code in your main app code:

from rook.serverless import setup_zappa_support
  1. Go to and start debugging!
You can’t perform that action at this time.
