I wasn’t at re:invent this past week but I did hear the announcement of an addition to AWS Lambda called AWS Lambda Layers.
A layer is a ZIP archive that contains libraries, a custom runtime, or other dependencies.
You can implement an AWS Lambda runtime in any programming language. A runtime is a program that runs a Lambda function’s handler method when the function is invoked.
In short, it sounds like it’s now possible to create Elm lambda functions in AWS as long as there’s a custom Elm runtime available. I think this would be great to have. I’m interested to hear what the Elm community thinks.
