#Examples

#Creating a new service

serverless create --template aliyun-nodejs --name my-special-service

This example will generate scaffolding for a service with aliyun as a provider and nodejs as runtime. The scaffolding will be generated in the current working directory.

#Creating a named service in a (new) directory

serverless create --template aliyun-nodejs --path my-new-service

This example will generate scaffolding for a service with aliyun as a provider and nodejs as runtime. The scaffolding will be generated in the my-new-service directory. This directory will be created if not present. Otherwise Serverless will use the already present directory.

Additionally Serverless will rename the service according to the path you provide. In this example the service will be renamed to my-new-service.
