Is Amplify your recommended way of setting up Lambdas? I’ve found the AWS and SAM CLI to be a little painful, ended up going with Serverless Framework. Seems like what you’re doing here automates so much of the configuration, which is what I get out of Serverless Framework

it's the way I know best, so yes. I'd say AWS CDK is also a really easy way, that requires just a little bit more code. Serverless is more established, but third party. honestly between Amplify, CDK, and Serverless you have no bad choices here.
