Serverless OpenWhisk Node.js Template

Hello! 😎

This is a template Node.js service for the OpenWhisk platform. Before you can deploy your service, please follow the instructions below…

Have you set up your account credentials?

Before you can deploy your service to OpenWhisk, you need to have an account registered with the platform.

  • Want to run the platform locally? Please read the project's Quick Start guide for deploying it locally.
  • Want to use a hosted provider? Please sign up for an account with IBM Bluemix and then follow the instructions for getting access to OpenWhisk on Bluemix.

Account credentials for OpenWhisk can be provided through a configuration file or environment variables. This plugin requires the API endpoint, namespace and authentication credentials.

Do you want to use a configuration file for storing these values? Please follow the instructions for setting up the OpenWhisk command-line utility. This tool stores account credentials in the .wskprops file in the user's home directory. The plugin automatically extracts credentials from this file at runtime. No further configuration is needed.

Do you want to use environment variables for credentials? Use the following environment variables to be pass in account credentials. These values override anything extracted from the configuration file.

  • OW_APIHOST - Platform endpoint, e.g.
  • OW_AUTH - Authentication key, e.g. `xxxxxx:yyyyy

Have you installed the provider plugin?

Install project dependencies which includes the OpenWhisk provider plugin.

$ npm install

…and that's it!

Deploy Service

Use the serverless command to deploy your service. The sample handler.js file can be deployed without modification.
