Enabling Rapid Pulumi Prototyping with Rust

Pulumi enables engineers to employ the best practices of their field to infrastructure as code. The pulumi watch command is an example of this, enabling rapid prototyping and a “hot reload” style developer experience for prototyping Pulumi programs. In this post you’ll see what watch mode enables, the challenges encountered in maintaining the feature, and how we were able to use Rust to bring that feature to more of our users.

Node.js Native Binary Compilation Using vercel/pkg

Node.js Native Binary Compilation Using vercel/pkg

In Pulumi’s engineering department, we often build and distribute tools as native binaries to avoid the need for additional dependencies on user machines. Most of these tools are written in Go, which has good support for building self-contained binaries that target modern operating systems. While other Pulumi-supported languages like Node.js, Python, and .NET require additional runtime dependencies, it’s possible to bundle dependencies with the program. In this article, we’ll show you how to do that for a Node.

Repairing State With Pulumi Refresh

Under the hood, Pulumi is a desired state engine. This means that you tell Pulumi what you want, Pulumi knows what already exists, and it makes targeted changes to match the state of the world with your desired state. This works great as long as Pulumi understands the state of the world, which it nearly always does. We will discuss how pulumi refresh can be used to bring Pulumi’s state back inline with external state.

Create an AWS Static Website Fast with Angular and Pulumi

In this blog post, we’re going to use some Angular framework components to assemble a static website and then use Pulumi and its AWS Static Website component to deploy it to AWS. The website is for a café called the Pulumi Café. It will contain two pages, one an About page and the other a Menu page, as well as some navigational pieces. To follow this example, you need to have both Angular and Pulumi installed.
