Announcing the OpenFaaS Function Store

I'm proud to announce that the OpenFaaS community has pulled together to build and launch the first Function Store for Serverless Functions.


The mission for OpenFaaS is Serverless Functions Made Simple and that means finding new ways of making Serverless even easier to approach. We already have key advantages such as:

  • Deployed in 60 seconds
  • Native Docker Swarm and Kubernetes support
  • Cloud Native integrations with existing trusted tooling such as Prometheus and AlertManager
  • Helm chart for Kubernetes
  • Community support for DC/OS, Rancher Cattle, Nomad and
  • A UI portal and rich CLI

The community asked for a function store from early on and it slowly crept up the ROADMAP.

I think it's no longer an "if" an App Store is right for an eco-system, but a when. The when is now and I want to give you a quick preview.

Try it out

Deploy OpenFaaS using Docker Swarm on your laptop or Kubernetes with minikube following one of our guides.

We also incorporated UX feedback from the community by making the manual deployment page easier to use and pointing folks to the more powerful experience of the CLI.

Now open the UI portal and click "Deploy Function" - you'll now see a dialog with all the functions listed and you can even search and filter them by name.

We've already had function submissions for functions from Nic Jackson (Hashicorp) and Stefan Prodan (WeaveWorks) along with several other community members.

You can find out how the Function Store works or submit your own function by raising a Pull Request.

One of my favourite functions (certinfo) reports back on when your LetsEncrypt SSL certificate is going to expire. How handy is that?
