Recently, I was working on a project that required dictionary words and their meanings. I tried to find some good Dictionary APIs. 🚀
I found some but they were paid one and that too available with a cap value.
So I created my own dictionary API with no request limitations using Serverless Framework Stack with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lambda and AWS Cloudfront.
AWS Lambda provides 10,00,000 free requests every month and only triggers on a particular event like http request. So it saves alot of computing power and resources.
For those who want to start with Serverless Stack they can see the link of the repository here
Currently the api endpoint takes a word and returns the meaning. I'll try to add more options like synonms and antonyms.
GitHub Contributors are welcome to contribute. Also, you may use the dictionary api for your project.

Hey, this looks brilliant. Nice work. I love that it's easy to follow for people new that are picking up serverless.
A few things you might consider to make it even more brilliant:

Keep up the awesome work!
Thanks for the feedback. I'll update the repository with the new changes.
