#Examples

#Creating a new service

serverless create -t spotinst-nodejs -n my-special-service

This example will generate scaffolding for a service with Spotinst 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 -t spotinst-nodejs -p my-new-service

This example will generate scaffolding for a service with Spotinst as a provider and ruby 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.

#Creating a new service using a local template

serverless create --template-path path/to/my/template/folder --path path/to/my/service --name my-new-service

This will copy the path/to/my/template/folder folder into path/to/my/service and rename the service to my-new-service.
