Python lambda functions?

From my understanding, Netlify functions are AWS Lambda functions with some extra wrapping code to make them easier to deploy and use. I have seen that it is possible to develop Lambda functions using Python and was wondering if the same is possible with Netlify (I’m thinking not as I’ve found no reference to them in the documentation.

Thanks for any help.

Hello, @teymour-aldridge, and welcome to our community forum!

At this time only Node (javascript) and Go are supported. Quoting our docs:

Currently, you can deploy serverless functions built with JavaScript and Go.

We do have an open feature request to support other language runtimes (Python, Ruby, Rust, etc). I have added this forum topic to the “+1 for python list” there. If/when we do support Python in Functions we’ll follow-up here in community to let you know.

Anyone else reading this, please feel free to chime in with a +1 below also stating what languages you most want to see added. (We’ll see these comments here and keep the counts for the languages on the feature request up to date.)

+1 for Rust please. I understand there are problems with cargo plugins and slow compilation but I’d love to make my build command a simple cargo run

@Robert_Snakard - we’d love it if you posted in #features and gave us as much detail as possible how this would be beneficial to you and other developers :muscle:
