#Spotinst - Quick Start

Here is a quick guide on how to create a new serverless project using the Spotinst NodeJS template. For more detailed instruction please check out the other reference material provided.

#Install Serverless Framework

First you will need to have the serverless framework installed. To do this you will have to run the command:

npm install -g serverless

#Set Up Credentials

To do this please refer to the Credentials link provided

#Create a New Service

Create a new service using the Node.js template, specifying a unique name and an optional path for your service.

serverless create --template spotinst-nodejs -p new-service
cd new-service

#Install Spotinst Serverless Functions Plugin

You will first need to install the Spotinst Functions plugin before you are able to deploy your function. Once this has been done you do not need to do it again for this project.

npm install

#Deploying and Updating the Function

  1. Deploying the Service

Use this when you have made changes to your Functions, Events or Resources in serverless.yml or you simply want to deploy all changes within your Service at the same time.

serverless deploy 
  1. Deploy the Function

Use this to quickly upload and overwrite your function code, allowing you to develop faster.

serverless deploy function -f hello
  1. Updating the Function

Use this to update your function after you have made updates that you want to push to production.

serverless deploy 

#Invoke the Function

Invokes a Function

serverless invoke -f hello


If at any point, you no longer need your service, you can run the following command to remove the Functions, Events and Resources that were created, and ensure that you don't incur any unexpected charges.

serverless remove
