Lambda shell - a lambda-backed Linux shell
Execute commands hosted and executed by AWS Lambda via an interactive shell / terminal.
- Apex (http://apex.run)
- Amazon AWS account
- Modify project.json to include your own IAM role.
- Install npm modules:
cd functions/exec; npm install
- Deploy to AWS with
apex deploy exec.
This will create a REPL (shell) where commands will be sent to Lambda and returned to your console.
