Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Adopt ? We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.

One of the challenges of using cloud services is being able to develop and test locally. LocalStack solves this problem for AWS by providing local test double implementations of a wide range of AWS services, including S3, Kinesis, DynamoDB and Lambda. It builds on top of best-of-breed tools such as Kinesalite, dynalite and Moto and adds isolated processes and error injection functionality. LocalStack is very easy to use, ships with a simple JUnit runner and a JUnit 5 extension and can also run inside a docker container. For many teams, it has become the default for testing services that are deployed on AWS.

One of the challenges of using cloud services is being able to develop and test locally using those services. LocalStack solves this problem for AWS by providing local test double implementations of a wide range of AWS services, including S3, Kinesis, DynamoDB and Lambda. It builds on top of existing best-of-breed tools such as Kinesalite, Dynalite and Moto and adds isolated processes and error injection functionality. LocalStack is very easy to use and ships with a simple JUnit runner and a JUnit 5 extension. We're using it in a few of our projects and have been impressed with it.
