Salesforce Functions lets you use the Salesforce Platform for building event-driven, elastically scalable apps and experiences. Salesforce Functions is designed to boost developer productivity by reducing your infrastructure responsibilities and enabling you to build and integrate Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) apps using the languages and tools of your choice.

Functions Recipes is a library of examples to help you getting started with Salesforce Functions and get used to their main features.

To learn more about Salesforce Functions please visit the documentation center.

Getting Started

You can use Functions both locally and deployed to a Salesforce Organization, if you don't have access to a Functions Enabled Org, you can still use the examples in this repository, please refer to the Local Development section for more information.


Please refer to the Install Prerequisites for detailed information about the necessary tools to start developing Salesforce Functions.
