A DSL for generating Amazon Web Services CloudFormation templates.
AWS Cloudformation templates are an incredibly powerful way to build sets of resources in Amazon's AWS environment. Unfortunately, because they are specified in JSON, they are also difficult to write and maintain:JSON does not allow commentsAll structures are JSON, so it is sometimes easy for a person reading a template to get lost.References and internal functions have a particularly unpleasant syntax.The cnfdsl gem provides a simple DSL that allows you to write equivalent templates in a more friendly language and generate the correct json templates by running ruby.
