Converting a Serverless App to run on AWS Lambda and DynamoDB with Serverless Framework


This collection is a sequel to the Building a Serverless JAMStack Todo app with Netlify, Gatsby, GraphQL, and FaunaDB collection. In this collection we take the TODO application we built and convert it to run using Netlify Identity, AWS Lambda (using the serverless framework) and DynamoDB. We cover

  • Fauna vs DynamoDB and when to use each
  • Setting up AWS accounts
  • Creating DynamoDB tables and data modeling differences between Fauna and Dynamo
  • Converting our Netlify Functions deployment to a Serverless Framework deployment
  • Implementing Custom authorizer functions on AWS

It uses tools that remove as many of the barriers as possible. Netlify Functions grows into Serverless Framework adn AWS Lambda, Netlify Identity is kept around, and FaunaDB can grows into DynamoDB.
