#Knative - Create

Creates a new service in the current working directory based on the provided template.

Create service in current working directory:

serverless create --template knative-docker

Create service in new folder:

serverless create --template knative-docker --path myService

Create service in new folder using a custom template:

serverless create --template-url https://github.com/serverless/serverless/tree/master/lib/plugins/create/templates/knative-docker --path myService

#Options

  • --template or -t The name of one of the available templates. Required if --template-url and --template-path are not present.
  • --template-url or -u The name of one of the available templates. Required if --template and --template-path are not present.
  • --template-path The local path of your template. Required if --template and --template-url are not present.
  • --path or -p The path where the service should be created.
  • --name or -n the name of the service in serverless.yml.

#Available templates

To see a list of available templates run serverless create --help

#Examples

#Creating a new service

serverless create --template knative-docker --name my-project

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

Your new service will have a default stage called dev. The provider which is used for deployment later on is Knative.

#Creating a named service in a (new) directory

serverless create --template knative-docker --path knative-project

This example will generate scaffolding for a service with knative as a provider. The scaffolding will be generated in the knative-project 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 knative-project.
