Installing AWS SAM, CLI, & Docker

The AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM) encompasses both the name of the YAML syntax to define your serverless applications & the command line tooling to run, build, and deploy them.

Our cookiecutter starter project makes use of the same build containers that SAM uses internally. These containers already have both AWS CLI, and SAM installed too. Checkout our Quick Start guide and dig into our bin scripts if you want to mimic these containers for development, test, and deploys. Alternatively, you can install AWS CLI, and SAM globally on your system.
