Install Python modules for Lambda using Cloud9

[58/100] #100DaysOfCloud Today, I Installed Python modules for Lambda using Cloud9.

For a Lambda function to work with some libraries it needs to be uploaded as a separate module as lambda doesn't isn't inbuilt with many python libraries. To do that a new Cloud9 environment will be started and in it a pip commands executed in terminal. Then modules will be packed and upload to lambda function.

AWS Cloud9 is a cloud-based integrated development environment (IDE) that lets you write, run, and debug your code with just a browser. It includes a code editor, debugger, and terminal. Cloud9 comes prepackaged with essential tools for popular programming languages, including JavaScript, Python, PHP, and more, so you don’t need to install files or configure your development machine to start new projects. Since your Cloud9 IDE is cloud-based, you can work on your projects from your office, home, or anywhere using an internet-connected machine. Cloud9 also provides a seamless experience for developing serverless applications enabling you to easily define resources, debug, and switch between local and remote execution of serverless applications. With Cloud9, you can quickly share your development environment with your team, enabling you to pair program and track each other's inputs in real time.

You can try do it by yourself by following the steps from the link below: GitHub
