Lambda middleware

This middleware is part of the lambda middleware series. It can be used independently.


import { doNotWait } from "@lambda-middleware/do-not-wait";

// This is your AWS handler
async function helloWorld() {
  return {
    statusCode: 200,
    body: "",

// Wrap the handler with the middleware
export const handler = doNotWait()(helloWorld);
