Testing this guide to deploy some Rust in AWS Lambda.

If you need more information you can read my AWS Lambda Functions written in Rust blog post where I describe all the steps I took to build and publish a Lambda Function in Rust.

Building the crate in OSX

In order to build this project in OSX you must ensure that you have a folder called .cargo with a config file in it. This file must contain exactly this:

linker = "x86_64-linux-musl-gcc"

Building the crate in Linux

Install the musl-tools:

sudo apt install musl-tools

Remove the .cargo folder if present or comment the contents of the config file.

Common building steps

# this will start the build process
cargo build --release --target x86_64-unknown-linux-musl
# this will create the final zip
zip -j ./target/x86_64-unknown-linux-musl/release/bootstrap
You can’t perform that action at this time.
