Lambda Code Works On Node V8.10 But Not Nodejs V10.x

- 1 answer

I am working through a lambda course which was done using v8.10. I am trying to use nodejs v10.x since that is what I want to use for my project in the future.

I am not understanding why the "const uuid = require('uuid');" line is throwing an import error only in nodejs v10 but in v8.10 the code runs just fine.

Code:

const aws = require('aws-sdk');
const s3 = new aws.S3();
const uuid = require('uuid');

exports.handler = async (event) => {
    console.log("Get the event to our S3POC class - " + JSON.stringify(event));

    const newUUID = uuid.v4();

    console.log("The file name is:" + newUUID);

    //put our sentence into the s3 bucket
    return s3.putObject({
        Bucket: "helloworld-s3.arkhadbot.com",
        Key: "test" + ".json"
    });
};

Error

Answer

Since node.js v10 aws lambda does not support importing libraries from lambda itself.

from the docs :

A deployment package is a ZIP archive that contains your function code and dependencies. You need to create a deployment package if you use the Lambda API to manage functions, or if you need to include libraries and dependencies other than the AWS SDK.

If your function depends on libraries other than the SDK for JavaScript, install them to a local directory with NPM, and include them in your deployment package. You can also include the SDK for JavaScript if you need a newer version than the one included on the runtime, or to ensure that the version doesn't change in the future.

Update 02/05/2020:

node.js 8.10 is now deprecated, you should use node.js 10 or 12.
