Envelope for AWS Lambda responses that supports raw invocation response parsing.

Installation

$ npm install lambda-envelope

Usage

Response

AWS Lambda does not provide a way to separate client and server errors, as errors can't be extended with custom fields. Response class contains methods needed by AWS Lambda to correctly serialize custom response or error. Successful results and client errors should be returned using success callback. Errors that should be treated as server errors and, as a result, be picked up by Amazon CloudWatch, must be returned using error callback.

constructor(options)

Constructor takes options object with optional parameters:

  • [statusCode] - response status code that should match HTTP status codes, but can be any proprietary value [defaults to 200]
  • [encoding] - response body encoding [defaults to identity]
  • [body] - response body (can be of any type that is JSON.stringify compatible) [defaults to {}]
Example
const Response = require('lambda-envelope').Response;
 
module.exports.handler = function(event, context, callback) {
  const response = new Response({
    statusCode: 200,
    body: {
      data: 'some data'
    }
  });
 
  callback(null, response);
}

ResponseBuilder

ResponseBuilder is a factory class that helps to deal with large response size, since AWS Lambda has a 6 MB max response size (256 KB in the asynchronous mode). It tries to compress the response when it exceeds pre-defined threshold and uploads compressed response to S3 bucket when compression does not bring response size below threshold (returning pre-signed URL). Additionally, ResponseBuilder class contains helper method to parse raw AWS Lambda response.

constructor(options)

Constructor takes options object with the following parameters:

  • bucket - S3 bucket name to upload large responses to. This bucket should have lifecycle policy in place to cleanup old responses as soon as possible
  • [s3client] - an optional instance of AWS S3 client to use
  • [threshold] - an optional threshold in bytes to use for compression or S3 upload [defaults to 6291456 (6 MB)]
  • [urlTTL] - an optional pre-signed S3 URL expiration time in seconds [defaults to 30]
Example
const AWS = require('aws-sdk');
const ResponseBuilder = require('lambda-envelope').ResponseBuilder;
 
const builder = new ResponseBuilder({
  bucket: 'bucket-for-responses',
  s3client: new AWS.S3({ maxRetries: 5 }),
  threshold: 256
  urlTTL: 60
});
 
module.exports.handler = function(event, context, callback) {
  const builder = new ResponseBuilder({
    bucket: 'bucket-for-responses',
    threshold: 256
  });
 
  const response = builder.build({
    statusCode: 200,
    body: {
      data: 'some data'
    }
  });
 
  callback(null, response);
}

build(options)

Creates and instance of Response with the following parameters:

  • [statusCode] - response status code that should match HTTP status codes, but can be any proprietary value [defaults to 200]
  • [encoding] - response body encoding [defaults to identity]
  • [body] - response body (can be of any type that is JSON.stringify compatible) [defaults to {}]
Example
const ResponseBuilder = require('lambda-envelope').ResponseBuilder;
 
const builder = new ResponseBuilder({
  bucket: 'bucket-for-responses'
});
 
module.exports.handler = function(event, context, callback) {
  const response = builder.build({
    statusCode: 200,
    body: {
      data: 'some data'
    }
  });
 
  callback(null, response);
}

fromAWSResponse(awsResponse)

Method that handles raw AWS Lambda invocation response parsing, including compressed and S3 responses.

Example
const AWS = require('aws-sdk');
const ResponseBuilder = require('lambda-envelope').ResponseBuilder;
 
const lambda = new AWS.Lambda();
const params = {
  FunctionName: 'function-to-be-invoked',
  Payload: JSON.stringify({})
};
 
return lambda.invoke(params)
  .promise()
  .then(rawResponse => ResponseBuilder.fromAWSResponse(rawResponse))
  .then(response => {
    if (response.statusCode === 200) {
      /*success*/
    } else {
      /*error*/
    }
  });
