AWS Lambda lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. For now, it only supports Node.js, Java, C# and Python. This project provides Go support without spawning a process.


go get -u -d github.com/eawsy/aws-lambda-go/...
package main

import (


func handle(evt json.RawMessage, ctx *runtime.Context) (interface{}, error) {
  return "Hello, World!", nil

func init() {

func main() {}
docker pull eawsy/aws-lambda-go
docker run --rm -v $GOPATH:/go -v $PWD:/tmp eawsy/aws-lambda-go
aws lambda create-function \
  --function-name preview-go \
  --runtime python2.7 --handler handler.handle --zip-file fileb://handler.zip \
  --role arn:aws:iam::AWS_ACCOUNT_NUMBER:role/lambda_basic_execution

aws lambda invoke --function-name preview-go output.txt
