Re: Amber Smalltalk on AWS Lambda

Herby Vojčík
You don't edit config.js (it's mentioned in it's beginning).

You create dirname.amd.json file for 3rd library and assemble config.js by amdconfig task (run as part of amber devel, for example).

Will post details later, writing from my phone.

While playing around with the backend-feature, the next step would be to import the AWS-SDK Javascript library.
I installed it with npm install aws-sdk and flipped through all the documentation regarding the use of 3rd-party libraries with amber.
The aws-sdk does not seem to include an "amd" file (I have no idea what that would be for), so I added this to the config.js file:
"aws": 'node_modules/aws-sdk/dist/aws-sdk.js',
and
'aws': {
      'exports': 'AWS'
    },
in the "shim" section.
This didn't seem to work - I wanted to make some AWS API calls from a workspace.
Can you point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance

I don't know. It is strange, that should definitely not be the case. :-/ 0.24.0 is good template. "amber" cli seems to be running the correct npm-installed thing. :-( (try uninstall and run "amber init" anyway if there isn't some dangling old installation in your setup). Or zoom me or skype me at drudkin.

Have you read this
https://github.com/amber-smalltalk/amber/wiki/Building-blocks-of-Amber-application-(and-library)?
Just replace bower with npm (bower is not used any more) and it should
be correct.

As for AWS SDK, it seems it is not packed in UMD form, so AMD loader can
not load it, but exports should work fine.

It is just that you need to create aws.amd.json or aws-sdk.amd.json (I
don't know what will be the name of the directory where it installs
into) with proper paths section relative to that dir and shim sections
(exports should work).

If you would like to load it in workspace, you would need to use require
directly, which I want to deprecate in favour of general package loader
based off JS dynamic import.

So I would advise to add aws in imports: of your app package (or
background package), as in

imports: {" ...others... ". 'aws' -> 'AWS'}

(I presume you want to use it anyway) then add some class-level method
in some class to expose it

MyClass >> publishedAws
   ^ aws

and in workspace just use MyClass publishedAws (inside the package with
import, you can just use 'aws' variable directly; imports: defines
'package-level' variables in reality).
