Run AWS Lambdas Locally (Python 3.6)

Serverless is cool, but it can be a PITA when you have to upload to and run your code from Amazon. Now you can run your Python 3.6 lambdas from your local machine: https://gitlab.com/eekinc/PythonLambdaServer

Right now this project has bare-bones functionality. It will run your lambdas as processes rather than full containers (pull requests welcome).

In my next post I will explain how to collapse all your lambdas down into a single lambda that runs on top of all your backend code. (This makes the aforementioned container issue largely irrelevant.)
