  • Have an AWS account. If you don't have an AWS account, you can easily create one here. Don't worry, everything you do with this project will fall within the AWS free tier limit!
  1. Create a new directorey mkdir project-name and/or go into your desired project's directory cd project-name
  2. Install super easy forms npm install super-easy-forms
  3. Install the super easy forms CLI globally npm install -g super-easy-forms-cli
  4. Run the build command sef build -r=your-aws-region -p=profile-name replace profile-name with the desired name for the IAM profile and your-aws-region with the desired AWS region code
  5. Finish creating your IAM user in the AWS Console and hold on to the access keys. If you had already created your IAM user you can ignore this step and close the browser window
  6. Update the local profile in your machine. The local profiles are stored in ~/.aws/credentials in mac/linux or in C:\Users\USER_NAME\.aws\credentials in windows. you can create/edit this file by runing sudo nano ~/.aws/credentials. add the profile keys in the format shown bellow
    aws_access_key_id = YOUR_ACCESS_KEY_ID

    sef fullform formname --fields=fullName=text=required,email=email=required,message=text=required

Customize your Form

The form/fullform commands generates and saves an html file that contains your ready-to-use form with default bootstrap classes and an inline JQuery handler.

You can open the html file and add custom CSS or modify the forms HTML layout. Allowing you to adapt it to your project however you like.

How it Works

Super Easy forms makes use of AWS's IaC service, Cloudformation, to define and deploy the necessary infrastructure for your forms. When you run sef fullform some resources will be created in the AWS cloud and some files/folders will be created locally including a responsive HTML form with an inline JQuery handler.

Resources Created
  1. A Dynamodb table to store your submissions
  2. An s3 bucket to store your lambda deployment package
  3. A lambda function that will add the form output to the database and send an email to stakeholders.
  4. A REST API endpoint for the lambda function with a POST method.
The Form
  1. Responsive bootsrap 4 layout
  2. Automatic form fields with labels
  3. JQuery CDN
  4. JQuery handler connected to your API endpoint
