stacker is a tool and library used to create & update multiple CloudFormation stacks. It was originally written at Remind and released to the open source community.
stacker Blueprints are written in troposphere, though the purpose of most templates is to keep them as generic as possible and then use configuration to modify them.
At Remind we use stacker to manage all of our Cloudformation stacks - both in development, staging and production without any major issues.
- Python 2.7
- Python 3.5+(evaluation purpose only)
The stacker command is built to have sub-commands, much like git. Currently the commands are:
buildwhich handles taking your stack config and then launching or updating stacks as necessary.
destroywhich tears down your stacks
diffwhich compares your currently deployed stack templates to your config files
infowhich prints information about your currently deployed stacks
Stack can also be executed from Docker. Use this method to run stacker if you want to avoid setting up a python environment:
docker run -it -v `pwd`:/stacks remind101/stacker build ...
