    Serverless Local Dev Server Plugin With Multi Project Support

    Build Status

    This is a fork of the Local Dev Server Plugin from DieProduktMacher/serverless-local-dev-server

    This plugin exposes Alexa-Skill, Schedule, and HTTP events as local HTTP endpoints, removing the need to deploy every code change to AWS Lambda. You can connect these endpoints to Alexa, Facebook Messenger or other services via forwardhq, ngrok or any other forwarding service.

    Supported features:

    • Expose alexa-skill, schedule, and http events as local HTTP endpoints
    • Environment variables
    • Basic HTTP integration

    How To

    1. Install the plugin

    yarn add @kalarrs/serverless-local-dev-server --dev

    2. Add the plugin to your serverless project configuration file

    serverless.yml configuration example:

      name: aws
      runtime: nodejs8.10
        handler: handler.hello
          - alexaSkill
          - http: GET /hello
          - schedule: rate(1 day)
    # Add serverless-local-dev-server to your plugins:
      - "@kalarrs/serverless-local-dev-server"
      # optional: add folder for serving static files (relative to service path)
      localDevStaticFolder: path/to/static/files
      # optional: set the port the server starts on
      localDevPort: 5000
      # optional: set the path name for schedule to be in local vs utc
      localDevScheduleShowLocalTime: true

    3. Start the server

    serverless local-dev-server

    On default the server listens on port 5005. You can specify another one with the --port argument:

    serverless local-dev-server --port 5000

    You can also set the port in the serverless.yml

      localDevPort: 5000

    To see responses returned from Lambda and stack traces, prepend SLS_DEBUG=*

    SLS_DEBUG=* serverless local-http-server

    4. For Alexa Skills

    4.1 Share localhost with the internet

    For example with forwardhq:

    forward 5005

    4.2 Configure AWS to use your HTTPS endpoint

    In the Configuration pane, select HTTPS as service endpoint type and specify the forwarded endpoint URL.

    As method for SSL Certificate validation select My development endpoint is a sub-domain of a domain that has a wildcard certificate from a certificate authority.
