Serverless Framework Docs

#Getting Started with the Serverless Framework and AWS

First things first, let's get the Serverless Framework open source CLI installed on your machine.

#Installing as a standalone binary

(no Node.js or npm installation required)

#macOS & Linux

Run following code in your terminal:

curl -o- -L | bash

Note: To use newly installed binary you need to open another terminal window.

To upgrade already installed version:

serverless upgrade


Install with Chocolatey package manager:

choco install serverless

To upgrade already installed version:

choco upgrade serverless

#Installing via npm

# Install the serverless cli
npm install -g serverless

# Or, update the serverless cli from a previous version
npm update -g serverless

If you don’t already have Node 6 or higher on your machine, you’ll need to do that first.

#Serverless Dashboard

If you already registered for a Serverless Framework Dashboard account, login to your account from the CLI.

serverless login

Once you have the Serverless Framework installed, simply run the serverless command and follow the prompts. In no time you will have deployed your first serverless app using the Serverless Framework CLI and configured your Serverless Framework Dashboard account to automatically monitor your serverless app, generate alerts, and much more. If you already have an existing Serverless Framework Dashboard account, you'll be prompted for your organization and application as well.
