StackFormation dev-master Documentation¶
Lightweight AWS CloudFormation Stack, Template and Parameter Manager and Preprocessor
Deploying CloudFormation stacks to AWS can be done using the AWS Console, AWS Cli or any SDK. While this is perfectly ok it can be a challenge to keep track of what template is used for what stack and manage the input parameters. This is where “StackFormation” comes in.
StackFormation (note the wordplay: CloudFormation / Stacks) will read blueprint.yml files that contains information about stacks, the templates they use and their input parameters. It also allows you to query values for input parameters from other stack’s resources or outputs. In addition to that StackFormation makes it easy to embed scripts into UserData.
