Lambdoku

Heroku-like experience with AWS Lambdas.

Features

Connecting current directory with lambda (like heroku git:remote)

$ lambdoku init <ARN-of-your-lambda-function>

this allows you to omit the -a param for all commands below

Simple push of the zip/jar file

$ lambdoku push hello.zip

Simplified environment variables management (heroku config)

$ lambdoku config:set ONE=1 TWO=2

$ lambdoku config
ONE='1'
TWO='2'

$ lambdoku config:get ONE
ONE='1'

Simplified releases management (heroku releases)

$ lambdoku releases
22 | Setting env variables AA | 2016-11-26T21:12:46.894+0000
21 | Unsetting env variables XY | 2016-11-26T21:10:04.302+0000
20 | Setting env variables BB,XY | 2016-11-26T20:57:57.340+0000
...

$ lambdoku rollback 18

$ lambdoku releases
23 | Rolling back to version 18 | 2016-11-26T21:35:45.952+0000
22 | Setting env variables AA | 2016-11-26T21:12:46.894+0000
21 | Unsetting env variables XY | 2016-11-26T21:10:04.302+0000
20 | Setting env variables BB,XY | 2016-11-26T20:57:57.340+0000
...

in the example ☝️ both code and configuration is rolled back from version 18.

Pipelines (heroku pipelines)

(actually the main reason why lambdoku was created)

$ lambdoku init lambdaDev

$ lambdoku pipeline:add lambdaStage

$ lambdoku pipeline:add lambdaProd -a lambdaStage

$ lambdoku pipeline
lambdaStage

$ lambdoku pipeline:promote

now lambdaDev and lambdaStage have the same codebase. lambdaStage can be promoted to lambdaProd with command lambdoku downstream:promote -a lambdaStage.

Logs

To get 100 latest log lines from all lambda invocations:

$ lambdoku logs -n 100

To follow logs produced by all lambda invocations:

$ lambdoku logs -f 

Invoking lambda

To invoke lambda to test if it works, you can use:

lambdoku invoke

You can also pass parameters to the function invocation:

lambdoku invoke '{"param1": "value1" ... }'

Installation

  1. Prerequisite: AWS Environment variables

    • Set required variables:
      • AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID
      • AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
      • AWS_DEFAULT_REGION
    • ... or use the ~/.aws/config file to configure aws-sdk by setting AWS_SDK_LOAD_CONFIG env variable to something truthy
  2. Prerequisite: Node and npm (ES6 support required)

    • On OS X with homebrew: brew update && brew install node
  3. Then, simply:

    npm install -g lambdoku

Internals (aka 'how it works?')

  • it's simply an abstraction layer over AWS Lambda API effectively invoking aws-sdk
  • each change applied to lambda is finished with lambda version publication
  • the rollback and promote operations retrieve code from AWS and uploads it in place of current one
  • pipelines use special env variable (please 🙏 don't use it :)) DOWNSTREAM_LAMBDAS to the dowstreams

Known issues

Due to the nature of AWS Lambda API most of the operations can't be considered atomic, like:

  • the change in configuration has to first retrieve current configuration - which may be change in the meantime
  • the rollback can be infected with change done in configuration in the 'meantime'
  • the pipelines promote can be infected by changes done at the same time on downstream
