Has anyone succeeded in getting the OAuth connect-api examples for python and/or python-chalice-aws running on AWS? The process is MUCH more complex than the sparse developer notes indicates – I think its a Python - Chalice - Docker - CDK → Lambda stack with a lot of configuration in between. Honestly, I am lost and would be happy to code the entire flow myself in Python if I could just link the Square libs to my Lambda code. Can anyone help?

I am developing a web app on AWS and I was hoping that intergrating Square into my Lambdas would be easy but I am struggling. I am a longtime Square user as a vendor – I want to use Square in this new software venture – I am willing to pay for help and would be happy to integrate a 3rd party solution. Getting the sample code to work was torture.
DO NOT run out of the box – you must manually edit the Python 3.8 libs or they both throw errors.
To fix, remove allowed_methods=retry_methods from http_client initializations
But even when I finally got them to work - I realized I don’t need them. I need the kind of solution found in
To sign up a seller I need to implement:
and for the buyer I need:
Chalice and Flask and Square itself all have to be imported into my lambdas. I cannot even get a successful Docker deployment to AWS. I am in configuration hell. Docker is inscrutable. It’s a big disappointment in 2023 that this is so arcane.
Are there any resources for developers like me? Are there any software packages that provide the glue? Can you help me?
