Welcome to the functions project, an open source, curiosity-driven tool for optimizing the administration of function as a service (FaaS) technologies. Our purpose is to make it easier to build, maintain and deploy serverless functions.



The project is still under deep development, and there is still much work to be done even to reach the base quality. Nonetheless, we believe there is value in using it as it is if it fits your needs and requirements (Python + Linux).

Feedback, issues and request are more than welcome.

See the road map to see how our vision might need your future interest.

In the following sections, we list a summary of the functionalities that the tool can perform.


  • Generate new template function directories for starting new functions. Two types GCP http/pubsub.
  • Add an existing function to the function registry to be run and deployed as functions native to the package.
  • Build pre-generated, validated and locally existing functions using Docker.
  • Operate (deploy/remove) Google Cloud Platform functions from a local machine.
  • Store information about the built, run and deployed functions locally for reference and configuration.
  • Print out information about functions and their statuses (Build/Deployed/Running) using the list command.
  • Log function history using a log file stored on your local device.


  • Deploy locally existing functions as cloud functions. Limited to two types - http and pubsub.
  • Delete functions deployed to GCP using this package.
