Quick Deployment of an Express Framework

Last updated: 2019-12-04 17:22:41

    Serverless Express Tencent Cloud

    Easily deploy Express.js applications to Tencent Cloud's serverless infrastructure using this Serverless Framework Component. Your application will auto-scale, never charge you for idle time, and require little-to-zero administration.



    1. Install
    2. Create
    3. Configure
    4. Deploy
    5. Remove



    1. Install

    $ npm install -g serverless

    2. Create

    Just create serverless.yml and .env files

    $ touch .env # your Tencent API Keys
    $ touch app.js
    $ touch serverless.yml

    Add the access keys of a Tencent CAM Role with AdministratorAccess in the .env file, using this format:

    # .env
    • If you don't have a Tencent Cloud account, you could sign up first.

    Initialize a new NPM package and install express:

    npm init              # then keep hitting enter
    npm i --save express  # install express

    create your express app in app.js:

    const express = require('express')
    const app = express()
    app.get('/', function(req, res) {
      res.send('Hello Express')
    // don't forget to export!
    module.exports = app

    3. Configure

    # serverless.yml
      component: '@serverless/tencent-express'
        region: ap-shanghai

    4. Deploy
