One of our most up-voted feature requests (with 78 thumbs ups) is to support hierarchical config. We’re happy to announce that we’ve now released the first part of plans to support this feature. Pulumi will now allow you to set configuration values in your Pulumi.yaml file, using the given value as a default for all stacks in the project. While we expect even this first level of support will be incredibly useful to many people we also want to assure you that we have many more plans in place to make this feature even better.
In this blog post, we will talk about how Pulumi is now using .NET 6, the latest Long-Term Support version of .NET, as our default across the ecosystem. We will discuss the changes applied to templates, program structure and code generation. We also explain how Pulumi C# projects can benefit from the latest features in .NET 6 and how it simplifies your programs overall. Let’s dive in, shall we?
When I started using Pulumi for the first time, I used C# as my language of choice for defining infrastructure. I start by creating resources and providing their parameters through argument objects. The IDE helps me out with auto-completions and type errors as I go but the compiler didn’t always detect some of the errors I eventually came across.
