Quick Getting Started


What is Squeezer ?

Squeezer is a framework designed to help developers to get a better architecture on serverless zero-administration compute platforms where code runs on the top of microservices clouds like AWS Lambda , Azure Functions , IBM OpenWhisk & Google Functions

Features in short

  • Swagger UI API REST documentation support
  • SEO-friendly web apps with the PUG support ( formerly known as JADE ) + your favorite JS framework + CDN integrated support for project's assets (js, images, css, ...)
  • share components between microservices
  • auto-deployable, auto-scalable , no DevOps requirements
  • silent deployments ,no interruption for the current functionality ( really useful on production )
  • access deployed resources credentials (DB user, pass ...) directly from process.env variables
  • one single command to simultaneously deploy all available microservices on your project
  • quick intuitive code deployments by using a special mechanism which will deploy only assets, functions and file packages where code changed from the last deployment
  • automatic rollback to the previous working deployment if something goes wrong
  • sequential deployments, wait for the current deployments in progress to finish
  • self-healing microservices
  • test your code locally on a simulated microservices platform for a faster development cycle
  • separate your environments in multiple stages
  • extend framework functionality with your own "home-made" plugins
  • pay only for the usage ( no monthly subscriptions )
  • competitive pricing ( >= 2$ / 1 million HTTP requests )
  • smart external dependencies inclusion into the compiled microservice ( node_modules and other project files ) ... just like on any other trivial NodeJS project
  • Babel ES6/ES7 + Webpack 2 integration
