Introducing lambda-uploader, A Module for Uploading an AWS Lambda Function from Node.js

Written by @kylewbanks on Aug 26, 2015.

lambda-uploader is a Node.js module for uploading a source directory to AWS Lambda as a function.


npm install lambda-uploader


Assuming you have a folder called /path/to/lambda-function that contains the source code and dependencies of a Lambda function:

var lambdaUploader = require('lambda-uploader');


    'us-east-1', // Region
    'my-awesome-function', // Function Name
    '/path/to/lambda-function', // Lambda Function Source Directory
    'index.handler', // Handler Name
    '<Lambda Execution Role ARN>', 
    512, // Memory in Megabytes
    30, // Timeout in Seconds

    function(err) {
        if (err) {
            throw err;

        console.log("Lambda function uploaded!");

As always, the source code is available on GitHub and contributions are more than welcome.
