Intended Audience

pyplates are intended to be used with the Amazon Web Services CloudFormation service.

A pyplate is a class-based python representation of a JSON CloudFormation template and resources, with the goal of generating cloudformation templates based on input python templates (pyplates!) that reflect the cloudformation template hierarchy.

  • Lets you put comments right in the template!
  • Supports all required elements of a CFN template, such as Parameters, Resources, Outputs, etc.)
  • Supports all intrinsic CFN functions, such as base64, get_att, ref, etc.
  • Converts intuitiviely-written python dictionaries into JSON templates, without having to worry about nesting or order-of-operations issues.
