Table of Contents

NuGet Packages

This repo contains a number of different tools and libraries to support development of Lambdas using .NET. These packages have individual README docs outlining specific information for that particular package. These packages are cataloged here.

Events

This packages in this folder contains classes that can be used as input types for Lambda functions that process various AWS events.

These are the packages and their README.md files:

Amazon.Lambda.Tools

Package adds commands to the dotnet cli that can be used manage Lambda functions including deploying a function from the dotnet cli. For more information see the README.md file for Amazon.Lambda.Tools.

Global Tool Migration

As of September 10th, 2018 Amazon.Lambda.Tools has migrated to be .NET Core Global Tools. As part of the migration the version number was set to 3.0.0.0

To install Amazon.Lambda.Tools use the dotnet tool install command.

dotnet tool install -g Amazon.Lambda.Tools

To update to the latest version of Amazon.Lambda.Tools use the dotnet tool update command.

dotnet tool update -g Amazon.Lambda.Tools
Migrating from DotNetCliToolReference

To migrate an existing project away from the older project tool, you need to edit your project file and remove the DotNetCliToolReference for the Amazon.Lambda.Tools package. For example, let's look at an existing Lambda project file.

<Project Sdk="Microsoft.NET.Sdk">
  <PropertyGroup>
    <TargetFramework>netcoreapp2.1</TargetFramework>
    <GenerateRuntimeConfigurationFiles>true</GenerateRuntimeConfigurationFiles>

    <-- The new property indicating to AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio this is a Lambda project -->
    <AWSProjectType>Lambda</AWSProjectType>
  </PropertyGroup>
  
  <ItemGroup>
    <-- This line needs to be removed -->
    <DotNetCliToolReference Include="Amazon.Lambda.Tools" Version="2.2.0" />
  </ItemGroup>

  <ItemGroup>
    <PackageReference Include="Amazon.Lambda.Core" Version="1.0.0" />
    <PackageReference Include="Amazon.Lambda.Serialization.Json" Version="1.3.0" />
  </ItemGroup>
</Project>

To migrate this project, you need to delete the DotNetCliToolReference element, including Amazon.Lambda.Tools. If you don't remove this line, the older project tool version of Amazon.Lambda.Tools will be used instead of an installed Global Tool.

The AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio before .NET Core 2.1 would look for the presence of Amazon.Lambda.Tools in the project file to determine whether to show the Lambda deployment menu item. Because we knew we were going to switch to Global Tools, and the reference to Amazon.Lambda.Tools in the project was going away, we added the AWSProjectType property to the project file. The current version of the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio now looks for either the presence of Amazon.Lambda.Tools or the AWSProjectType set to Lambda. Make sure when removing the DotNetCliToolReference that your project file has the AWSProjectType property to continue deploying with the AWS Toolkit for Visual Studio.

Amazon.Lambda.AspNetCoreServer

Package makes it easy to run ASP.NET Core Web API applications as Lambda functions. For more information see the README.md file for Amazon.Lambda.AspNetCoreServer.

Amazon.Lambda.TestUtilities

Package includes test implementation of the interfaces from Amazon.Lambda.Core and helper methods to help in locally testing. For more information see the README.md file for Amazon.Lambda.TestUtilities.

Blueprints

Blueprints in this repository are .NET Core Lambda functions that can used to get started. In Visual Studio the Blueprints are available when creating a new project and selecting the AWS Lambda Project.

Dotnet CLI Templates

New .NET Core projects can be created with the dotnet new command. By installing the Amazon.Lambda.Templates NuGet package the AWS Lamdba blueprints can be created from the dotnet new command. To install the template execute the following command:

dotnet new -i "Amazon.Lambda.Templates::*"

The ::* on the end of the command indicates the latest version of the NuGet package.

To see a list of the Lambda templates execute dotnet new lambda --list

> dotnet new lambda --list

                string - Optional

                string - Optional  

The templates take two optional parameters to set the profile and region. These values are written to the aws-lambda-tools-default.json.

To create a function, run the following command

dotnet new lambda.EmptyFunction --name BlogFunction --profile default --region us-east-2

Yeoman (Deprecated)

The Yeoman generators have been deprecated in favor of the new dotnet new templates. They will not be migrated from the older project.json based project system.
