New Product: Stack.new

rolldy profile image rolldy ・2 min read

The team at Stackery is very excited to release stack.new today!

Stack.new is a public tool to audit AWS CloudFormation templates against aspects of AWS' 5 Pillars of Well-Architecture Framework to help you build more secure and reliable infrastructure in the Cloud.

How it works

  1. Drop any public GitHub CloudFormation template URL into stack.new (or select "random"). image
  2. Stackery then audits and visualizes the CloudFormation template... it takes a second or 2.

Key Features

CloudFormation Visualizer
image
Stackery's Design Canvas helps you visualize and identify resources in your CloudFormation template. Click into any resource to see its configuration or add new resources to update your template.

Audit Results
image
Powered by CFN-nag, Stack.new audits your template against 115 points including 46 related to IAM Policies. We also provide links to relevant materials from AWS and other serverless tutorials to help resolve the issues.

Reference Information
image
Documentation (pulled right from GitHub), resources in your template (like Cognito, Lambda, etc.), Audit results overview, and of course, your code!

At Stackery, we are always working to help flatten (shorten?) the learning curve for Cloud-native and Serverless applications. Tell us what you think and let us know what else you'd like to see form stack.new
