#Examples

#Creating a new Function App

serverless create --template azure-nodejs --name my-function-app

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

#Creating a named Function App in a (new) directory

serverless create --template azure-nodejs --path my-function-app

This example will generate scaffolding for a Function App with Azure as a provider and nodejs as runtime. The scaffolding will be generated in the my-function-app directory. This directory will be created if not present. Otherwise Serverless will use the already present directory.

Additionally Serverless will rename the Function App according to the path you provide. In this example the Function App will be renamed to my-function-app.

#Creating a new Function App using a local template

serverless create --template-path path/to/my/template/folder --path path/to/my/app --name my-function-app

This will copy the path/to/my/template/folder folder into path/to/my/app and rename the Function App to my-function-app.

#Create Function App in new folder using a custom template

serverless create --template-url https://github.com/serverless/serverless/tree/master/lib/plugins/create/templates/azure-nodejs --path myFunction App
