This starter kit is just one of the many useful DevOps Nirvana resources I have crafted for my own use that other developers can take advantage of. If you're looking to develop a Serverless application on AWS that requires a REST API and DynamoDB as a database, I highly recommend checking out my Chalice PynamoDB Docker REST API Starter Kit to save yourself hours of setup.
I've used this starter kit for a variety of personal and professional applications on AWS, and it's been a game-changer. It's an all-in-one solution that uses the Chalice framework to build and deploy REST APIs on AWS Lambda and API Gateway, while also utilizing Python's PynamoDB ORM to access DynamoDB as a database. Plus, it comes with a Dockerfile and Docker Compose file, so developing and testing the application locally is a breeze.
One of the things I love about this starter kit is that it provides a solid foundation for building serverless applications on AWS at a minimal cost. You can quickly get started with developing your application using the Docker Compose mode, which helps you to quickly spin up necessary services such as SMTP server, S3 Server, DynamoDB server, and DynamoDB web admin. You can even run database migrations before starting the application.
Alternatively, you can deploy the application to your AWS account with the Chalice deploy command in the cloud-hosted mode. The codebase also includes examples of how to use the starter kit, such as creating a user with missing data, trying an invalid email, and showing exception handling, as well as testing with a valid email.
Overall, the Chalice PynamoDB Docker REST API Starter Kit is a fantastic starting point for building serverless applications on AWS. It's easy to use, saves time and money, and is an example of industry best practices. Go ahead and give it a try!
