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.
One thing I love about Pulumi is how easy it is to configure a stack. As a builder mainly of web applications, I’m always thinking about how I’ll configure my apps from one environment to the next, and being able to use Pulumi’s built-in support for configuration and secrets to manage the API keys and database credentials for my dev, staging, and production stacks individually is incredibly convenient. For larger teams and organizations, though, where multiple applications rely on a set of common configuration settings — dozens of apps, say, depending on the the same API service or database — having to keep all of those config settings in sync across all of those individually can become a bit of a pain.
Over the last year since the launch of Pulumi 3.0, we’ve seen incredible growth in adoption and usage of the Pulumi open source project and Cloud Engineering platform, with more than a thousand new open source contributors, tens of thousands of new users, and millions of new cloud infrastructure resources being managed by Pulumi. Pulumi’s infrastructure as code tools are enabling teams to scale up their cloud infrastructure with robust software engineering tools and practices to get the most value out of their cloud platform investments.
Today, we’re excited to announce a wave of innovation across the Pulumi project with a collection of significant new feature launches. These new features bring together Pulumi’s Universal Infrastructure as Code offering, supporting the widest range of builders, clouds, programming languages, and cloud architectures.
Since we first launched Pulumi 4 years ago, a core point of differentiation between Pulumi and other Infrastructure as Code offerings has been the ability to use popular general purpose programming languages - and their rich software engineering ecosystems - in order to scale up the complexity and richness of cloud infrastructure workloads. This approach has enabled cloud builders to adopt and embrace modern Infrastructure as Code with Pulumi using a wide variety of languages, including TypeScript, Python, Go, C# and Java.
Our goal though has always been to offer the broadest range of programming language options to empower every cloud builder so that they could benefit from the best of Pulumi’s Infrastructure as Code platform.
Today, we are excited to launch Pulumi YAML, a simple YAML-based interface to the entirety of the Pulumi Infrastructure as Code platform.
Stop writing Kubernetes YAML by hand, and start using the power of familiar programming languages! Pulumi can generate Kubernetes manifests that easily integrate into existing CI/CD workflows.
