These are sets of example that i’ve used when migrating aws lambda to openfaas platform. A part of documenting on how it works, I’m open for your contributions for the improvement and future reference in working projects related to openfaas.


Make sure that you successfully installed OpenFaas.

How do I set this up

  • Update the stack.yml and replace the my docker account ${docker_name} to your docker account in each of the function.


      lang: go
      handler: ./aws/openfaas/redis
      image: ${docker_name}/redis:latest
  • Fill up the environment variable in stack.yml


        write_debug: true
        DB_URL: ''
        AWS_ID: ''
        AWS_KEY: ''
        REGION: ''
        SENTINEL_1: ''
        SENTINEL_2: ''
        SENTINEL_3: ''
        SENTINEL_PASS: ''

    Note: The OpenFaaS philosophy is that environment variables should be used for non-confidential configuration values only, and not used to inject secrets. I just add it here for quick and easy configuration during my testing but will get rid of this in production for sure.

  • Then deploy the functions with faas-cli up -f stack.yml


  • CloudStorage support


OpenFaas => Simple, powerful functions from anywhere.

AWS SDK => The SDK makes it easy to integrate your Go application with the full suite of AWS services including Amazon S3, Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SQS, and more.
