Deploy AWS Lambda right from Your IDE

Leveraging AWS Lambdas for coding microservices or better say utility functions over API, for different projects has been my go-to option.

but deploying them after making changes is a bit brain tiring loop.

therefore i developed a plugin for JetBrains IDEs which includes Intellij IDEA, GoLand, PyCharm and many others.

Old routine πŸ€•, dealing with lambda

Open IntelliJ
 ↳Write code (AWS Lambda)
 ↳ Build artifacts
 ↳ Switch from IDE to browser
 ↳ Head to AWS Console and sign in (One time step)
 ↳ Open AWS Lambda or AWS S3 web page in console
 ↳ Browse to file/folder to upload your artifact to cloud and hit save
 ↳ If deploying more than one lambda artifact
 ↳ Open another tab, open AWS console, browse artifact and hit save
 ↳ Repeat last two steps for all lambdas to be deployed
 ↳ Switch back to IDE
 ↳ Continue coding
<Repeat till EOD>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

New routine 🀩

Open IntelliJ
 ↳ Write code (AWS Lambda)
 ↳ Build artifact
 ↳ Deploy directly from IntelliJ IDE
<Repeat till EOD>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Bonus πŸŽ„

This plugin also helps in case you are deal with multiple AWS Named Profiles or AWS Organization
