This is something I got wrong went I scaffolded out my first CodeStar AWS Lambda pipeline and went to add new environments. To make your project work with AWS CodeStar and CodePipeline you basically need a buildspec.yml and a template.yml file in the root of your project, but that's really it. Then when you connect your source code repository to CodePipeline it will look for these files (or whatever names you have configured for them in the AWS Codepipeline settings) to build and deploy your project.
Things like this are what make it difficult to argue that AWS isn't still the leader in serverless. When we say, "a Lambda function" then sure, we could just expose one function. With the nodejs package aws-serverless-express you can easily handle lots of different endpoints that may or may not have query parameters as well. To me this makes my lambda functions a lot more logically organized as routes.
This is a quick little tip about sharing local variables across functions in your React components. It's something that a fellow developer, Ben, reminded me of in a pair programming session recently so I decided to write a blog post about it!
I've recently been building web applications with front-end frameworks like React, Reagent, and Angular 2. I was recently working on an Angualr 2 project and thought, "man, this sure seems like a ton of lines of code", but had no concrete evidence to prove it. After a quick google search I came to this stack overflow question, and the awesome answer(s) therein.
Ah git. Git is powerfully ferocious utility for version control of the code for a software project, but you must tame the beastly demon of experience by coming to sumbling blocks, getting through them, and documenting how you did it. So, let's do it...
