lambda-updater

A small CLI tool to update one or more AWS Lambda functions from a AWS CloudFormation template. This is useful if you have a huge CloudFormation stack, but don't want to re-deploy the whole stack just because you've added one line in a Lambda function. Use this to quickly upload a new version of your code.

Notes

  • Before you use lambda-updater, make sure that your AWS CLI is installed and configured.
  • Before you use lambda-updater, make sure that your CloudFormation stack exists, i.e. you've successfully deployed it at least once.

Install

npm

npm install -g lambda-updater

yarn

yarn global add lambda-updater

Usage

After that, just use the following command and all Java or NodeJS functions from your CloudFormation template get updated:

lambda-updater
   --cfn path
   --stack stack-name
   --target jsOrJarFile
   [--functionName name]
   [--useS3 bucketName]
   [--debug]

--cfn the relative path to your CloudFormation template

--stack the stack name for your CloudFormation template

--target a JS or JAR file containing all your function code; just the functions matching the target type will be updated (might be useful if you're using Java and NodeJS functions in one project)

--functionName optional: if you just want to update one single function, provide the logical function name

--useS3 optional: pass a bucket name and your target file will be uploaded to S3 first. This is useful and faster if your target file is quite large for a Lambda function (> 10MB). Target file will be uploaded to [LAMBDA_BUCKET]/_lambda-updater/[FILENAME]. Please consider the limitations on this approach.

--debug optional: prints out some further debug logs.

Note

The logical function name is what you define in your CloudFormation template. Example:

AWSTemplateFormatVersion: '2010-09-09'

Resources:
  YourLogicalFunctionName:
    Type: AWS::Serverless::Function
    Properties:
      # ...

If you have a function defined in your template which hasn't been deployed yet, it will be ignored and of course not updated. In this case there might be a different amount of functions in the logs which have been found and which actually have been updated.
