Get started with LocalStack extensions by installing and using the official MailHog extension.
LocalStack Extensions allow developers to extend and customize LocalStack. Extensions are a feature of our paid offering. LocalStack Extensions enable you to start custom services with LocalStack in the same container, while leveraging the existing features in the ecosystem.
Developers can add new services, extend existing services, and even add custom functionality. The Extensions API allows developers to easily plug in their own custom logic and services into the LocalStack container.
You can use LocalStack Extensions to:
- Starting custom services together with LocalStack in the same container (see our Cloudflare Workers Extension).
- Instrumenting AWS requests with additional information before they reach your Lambdas.
- Logging AWS API calls to custom data backends.
NoteThe feature and the API are currently experimental and may be subject to change. Please report any issues or feature requests on LocalStack Extension’s GitHub repository.
