Test locally

As you develop your Handler Function, you will, of course, want to test it with inputs formatted similarly to what you will be sending in once deployed as a worker. The quickest way to run a test is to pass in your input as an argument when calling your handler file. Assuming your handler function is inside of a file called your_handler.py and your input is {"input": {"prompt": "The quick brown fox jumps"}} you would call your file like so:


python your_handler.py --test_input '{"input": {"prompt": "The quick brown fox jumps"}}'

Additionally, you can launch a local test server that will provide you with an endpoint to send requests to by calling your file with the --rp_serve_api argument. See our blog post for additional examples.


python your_handler.py --rp_serve_api
