You can use the custom runtime of Function Compute to write C++ functions in Function Compute. This topic describes how to deploy and invoke a C++ function. You can modify the C++ sample code as needed for custom development.


  1. Run the following command to initialize a project:
    s init fc-custom-cpp-event -d fc-custom-cpp-event
    Note -d specifies the name of the folder in which the sample project resides. You can customize the folder name as required.
  2. Run the following command to go to the project directory:
    cd fc-custom-cpp-event
  3. Optional: Modify the sample code as needed for custom development.
  4. Run the following command to deploy the project:
    s deploy -y
    Sample command output:
