Serverless Toolkit

Part of Twilio Labs Banner

What is the Serverless Toolkit?

The Serverless Toolkit is CLI tooling to help you develop locally and deploy to the Twilio Functions & Assets.

There are two ways you can use the toolkit. If you are already using the Twilio CLI, you can install it via a plugin. Alternatively, you can use the toolkit as a standalone using twilio-run via npm or another Node.js package manager.

Throughout the docs, you can switch in the code snippets between Twilio-CLI and Bash Session to get the commands for both versions.

Let's work together

Everything in this toolkit is released under Twilio Labs and fully open-source. If you find any problems with this, please file an issue or even create a pull request to work together with us on the toolkit. We would love to hear your ideas and feedback!
