Consolidating Functions Into A ‘Mono Repo’

Published: Tue Feb 09 2021

A bit of an update to the netlify function post.

I was able to combine the function into the same repo as the svelte app.

A few changes I added a few lines for the functions to package.json

// package.json
"scripts": {
    "build:app": "rollup -c",
    "build:server": "netlify-lambda build functions",
    "build": "npm run build:server && npm run build:app",
    "dev": "rollup -c -w",
    "dev:server": "netlify-lambda serve functions",
    "start": "sirv public",
    "validate": "svelte-check"

As well as changing the netlify.toml

  command = "npm run build"
  functions = ".netlify/functions/"

And I added .netlify to my .gitignore.

With those changes and changing the path for the fetch, the app is now fully self-contained.

Local Dev Tip

Use npm install netlify-cli -g to install the netlify command. This will allow you to start up the app locally on port 8888 via netlify dev and test things out. It’s great to not have to start the server for both the function AND the app.
