AWS CF Generator Library
While the promise of infrastructure automation via cloud formation is exciting, anyone who has spent a reasonable amount of actually writing/updating CloudFormation scripts has realized that the process can actually be quite painful. Specifically:
- The cloud formation scripts can get large and unweildy
- There are significant chunks of repitetive declarations (think API response mappings)
- It becomes increasingly hard to correctly maintain references between resources
This whole experience begs for a solution that relies more on code, and less on declarative markup for infrastructure.
