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.

How to write a kickass README

Arguably the single most important piece of documentation for any open source project is the README. A good README not only informs people what the project does and who it is for but also how they use and contribute to it.

If you write a README without sufficient explanation of what your project does or how people can use it then it pretty much defeats the purpose of being open source as other developers are less likely to engage with or contribute towards it.
