Announcing aws-must-templates – part 1

Introduction

In a previous blog-post, I presented a tool called aws-must. The tool itself is very simple, and quite useless without templates driving the transformation from YAML to (CloudFormation) JSON.

In this blog post, I will introduce aws-must-templates, which is a set of mustache templates for creating CloudFormation JSON. Implementation without tests is asking for trouble, and therefore aws-must-templates are accompanied with test suites to validate correctness of the CloudFormation stacks created.
