    • Ease of use through UI portal and one-click install
    • Write services and functions in any language with Template Store or a Dockerfile
    • Build and ship your code in an OCI-compatible/Docker image
    • Portable: runs on existing hardware or public/private cloud by leveraging Kubernetes
    • CLI available with YAML format for templating and defining functions
    • Auto-scales as demand increases including to zero

    Overview of OpenFaaS (Serverless Functions Made Simple)

    Conceptual architecture

    Conceptual architecture and stack, more detail available in the docs

    Code samples

    You can generate new functions using the faas-cli and built-in templates or use any binary for Windows or Linux in a container.

    Official templates exist for many popular languages and are easily extensible with Dockerfiles.

    • Node.js (node12) example:

      "use strict"
      module.exports = async (event, context) => {
          return context
              .headers({"Content-Type": "text/html"})
                  👋 Hello World 🌍


    • Python 3 example:

      import requests
      def handle(req):
          r =  requests.get(req, timeout = 1)
          return "{} => {:d}".format(req, r.status_code)

    • Golang example (golang-http)

      package function
      import (
      func Handle(req handler.Request) (handler.Response, error) {
          var err error
          return handler.Response{
              Body: []byte("Try us out today!"),
              Header: map[string][]string{
                  "X-Served-By": []string{""},
          }, err

    Official eBook and video workshop

    The founder of OpenFaaS wrote Serverless For Everyone Else to help developers understand the use-case for functions through practical hands-on exercises using JavaScript and Node.js. No programming experience is required to try the exercises.

    The examples use the faasd project, which is an easy to use and lightweight way to start learning about OpenFaaS and functions.

    The roadmap for OpenFaaS is represented in GitHub issues and a Trello board.

    Roadmap: OpenFaaS Cloud

    OpenFaaS Cloud is a platform built on top of the OpenFaaS framework which enables a multi-user experience driven by GitOps. It can be installed wherever you already have OpenFaaS and packages a dashboard along with CI/CD integration with GitHub so that you can push code to a private or public Git repo and get live HTTPS endpoints.
