Serverless Express API Boilerplate

About nine months ago, we started development on a Node.js Serverless application hosted (if that is the proper term for serverless) on AWS Lambda. I started laying the architecture by writing code directly in the Lambda console, then I progressed to uploading zip files of the code, and then, finally, I found the Serverless framework. Before Serverless, I would manually (or via a script) create API endpoints in AWS API Gateway and then hook them up to the appropriate Lambda function.
