The CloudFormation Checklist is a list of all elements you need to have / to test before launching your infra to production.
Sister project: Lambda Checklist
Inspired by the Front-end Checklist
Table of Contents
How to use?
All items in the CloudFormation Checklist are required for the majority of the projects, but some elements can be omitted or are not essential (in the case of an administration web app, you may not need RSS feed for example). We choose to use 3 levels of flexibility:
- means that the item is recommended but can be omitted in some particular situations.
- means that the item is highly recommended and can eventually be omitted in some really particular cases. Omitting these that engineers may not work at full speed.
- means that the item can't be omitted by any reason. You may risk security issues in your infra. The testing priority needs to be on these elements first.
Some resources possess an emoticon to help you understand which type of content / help you may find on the checklist:
📖: documentation or article 🛠: online tool / testing tool 📹: media or video content
You can contribute to the CloudFormation Checklist App reading the README_APP file which explains everything about the project.
