See tme AWS documentation for more information about the runtime behavior, and the AWS Blog post introducing the async handler behavior in the 8.10 runtime.


interface NameEvent { fullName: string } interface NameResult { firstName: string middleNames: string lastName: string } type PersonHandler = Handler<NameEvent, NameResult>

export const handler: PersonHandler = async (event) => { const names = event.fullName.split(' ') const firstName = names.shift() const lastName = names.pop() return { firstName, middleNames: names, lastName } }

export const handler: Handler = async (event, context) => { console.log("EVENT: \n" + JSON.stringify(event, null, 2)) return context.logStreamName }

const s3 = new AWS.S3()

export const handler: Handler = async (event) => { const response = await s3.listBuckets().promise() return response? => bucket.Name) }

let url = ""
