A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Welcome to the AWS CodeStar sample web service

This sample code helps get you started with a simple Express web service deployed by AWS CloudFormation to AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway.

What's Here

This sample includes:

  • - this file
  • buildspec.yml - this file is used by AWS CodeBuild to package your service for deployment to AWS Lambda
  • app.js - this file contains the sample Node.js code for the web service
  • index.js - this file contains the AWS Lambda handler code
  • template.yml - this file contains the Serverless Application Model (SAM) used by AWS Cloudformation to deploy your service to AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway.

What Do I Do Next?

If you have checked out a local copy of your AWS CodeCommit repository you can start making changes to the sample code. We suggest making a small change to app.js first, so you can see how changes pushed to your project's repository in AWS CodeCommit are automatically picked up by your project pipeline and deployed to AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway. (You can watch the pipeline progress on your AWS CodeStart project dashboard.) Once you've seen how that works, start developing your own code, and have fun!
