How to Use Serverless with NestJS

Alt Text

Need an example of how to get started with NestJS and Serverless framework?

NestJS is a back-end framework for creating scalable applications.

Getting Started


To start playing with NestJS you should have node (version >= 8.9.0) and npm installed. You can download and install Node from the official website.

Create a database automatically

docker run --name mysql57 -p 3306:3306 \
-e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=superpassword \
-e MYSQL_USER=user \
-d mysql/mysql-server:5.7
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Serverless framework

For serverless you need to install the required package globally:

npm install serverless -g

To follow this tutorial, you are going to need clone repository NestJS-Serverless-TypeOrm

Now just start application:

npm run sls:offline

Let's create the first author in the application

You can try crud operations on Author

That's it!
