Proxy Integration For Web App

I am using API Gateway to directly serve up Lambda functions as a web application. I do the needed mappings for text/html and everything is working great.

I have reason to want proxy integration on a few pages so I tried to follow this how-to.

It’s working fine BUT the browser is displaying a JSON object, not a web page. Can I use proxy integration to serve up a web page directly (text/html), not a JSON object?

You need to send back the headers with "content-type":"text/html" as one of the entries.

You can also use a framework like Lambda API to handle this for you:

The response object from Lambda should look like this:

    "isBase64Encoded": true|false,
    "statusCode": httpStatusCode,
    "headers": { "headerName": "headerValue", ... },
    "body": "..."

Brilliant, thanks! I will try the standard solution and also take a close look at your API framework. Appreciate the help.

@jeremydaly, I just wanted to follow up to say your solution worked perfectly and I really appreciate your help. Thanks again.
