SparkleFormation Starter Kit

This repo is provided as a starting point for experimentation and development of CloudFormation templates using SparkleFormation and knife-cloudformation. For an introduction see our article from the 2014 AWS Advent series, Build infrastructure with CloudFormation without losing your sanity.


The .chef/knife.rb file in this repository assumes that the environment variables AWS_DEFAULT_REGION, AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID and AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY are set with values appropriate for your AWS account.

Run the following to generate a minimal VPC and deploy a single EC2 instance into it:

$ bundle install
$ bundle exec knife cloudformation create test-vpc --file cloudformation/vpc.rb --defaults
$ bundle exec knife cloudformation create test-vpc-instance --file cloudformation/vpc_instance.rb --defaults --apply-stack test-vpc
