What Is the Amazon Serverless Application Repository?

The Amazon Serverless Application Repository makes it easy for developers and enterprises to quickly find, deploy, and publish serverless applications in the Amazon Cloud. For more information about serverless applications, see Serverless Computing and Applications on the Amazon website.

You can easily publish applications, sharing them publicly with the community at large, or privately within your team or across your organization. To publish a serverless application (or app), you can use the Amazon Web Services Management Console, the Amazon SAM command line interface (Amazon SAM CLI), or Amazon SDKs to upload your code. Along with your code, you upload a simple manifest file, also known as an Amazon Serverless Application Model (Amazon SAM) template. For more information about Amazon SAM, see the Amazon Serverless Application Model Developer Guide.

The Amazon Serverless Application Repository is deeply integrated with the Amazon Lambda console. This integration means that developers of all levels can get started with serverless computing without needing to learn anything new. You can use category keywords to browse for applications such as web and mobile backends, data processing applications, or chatbots. You can also search for applications by name, publisher, or event source. To use an application, you simply choose it, configure any required fields, and deploy it with a few clicks.

In this guide, you can learn about the two ways to work with the Amazon Serverless Application Repository:

  • Publishing Applications – Configure and upload applications to make them available to other developers, and publish new versions of applications.

  • Deploying Applications – Browse for applications and view information about them, including source code and readme files. Also install, configure, and deploy applications of your choosing.
