Local skygear server static and lambda function testing questions


I’ve setup local skygear server according to the doc below.

Cloud functions work very well! However, I have 3 other questions.

  1. When I access localhost:3000/static, it shows an empty page. It shows Hello Word when I deployed to skygear cloud.
    I am runing skygear-server-darwin-amd64 and ./node_modules/.bin/skygear-node. Is there any other settings missing?
  2. Is it possible to do hot-reloading for skygear-node currently?
    UPDATE: Saw this just now! (https://github.com/SkygearIO/features/issues/170)
  3. Is it possible to do unit test on lambda functions if we are not using HTTP endpoint cloud functions?

export DATABASE_URL=“postgresql://charles:@localhost/charles?sslmode=disable”
export API_KEY="[masked]"
export MASTER_KEY="[masked]"
export APP_NAME=“exampleapp”
export TOKEN_STORE=“jwt”
export TOKEN_STORE_SECRET="[masked]"
export PLUGINS=“JS1”
export JS1_TRANSPORT=“http”
export JS1_PATH=“http://localhost:9000”
export PUBSUB_URL=“ws://localhost:3000/pubsub”
export SKYGEAR_ENDPOINT=“http://localhost:3000”
export HTTP=“true”
export DEV_MODE=true
export ASSET_STORE=fs
export ASSET_STORE_SECRET=asset-secret



For 1st question, try to set SERVE_STATIC_ASSETS="true" for skygear-node?

For 2nd question and 3rd question, there are feature issues on that.

Maybe @david90 can revert on our best practices for 3 before we complete the feature issue?


Thanks @bencheng!

Tried with SERVE_STATIC_ASSETS=“true” for skygear-node but still blank.

Are your content put inside public_html instead of static ?


@david90 Yes, it’s in /public_html/index.html
