Serverless Stack Demo API

The Serverless Stack Guide is a free comprehensive resource to creating full-stack serverless applications. We create a note taking app from scratch.

This repo is for the serverless backend API that we build over the course of the tutorial. You can find the repo for the frontend React app here. And the repo for the tutorial here.

This repo is split into:


To support the different chapters and steps of the tutorial; we use branches to represent the project codebase at the various points. Here is an index of the various chapters and branches in order.

$ npm install serverless -g

Clone this repo.

$ git clone

Head over to the

directory and install the npm packages.
$ npm install

And build the SST app.

contains the request event info and looks something like this.
