A YAML packer-wrapper tool

Project description

Pipeline Status (yacker) PyPI package (latest) Documentation Status (yacker)

yacker is Python utility that wraps Packer with the ability to define template and variable files in YAML.

Sadly, Packer (at the moment) only supports template definitions in JSON, which (for me) isn’t a particularly human-friendly file format (I like to add comments and break lines to make them easier to read). So, here’s a utility that allows you to define your files using a much more friendly format.


yacker is published on PyPI and can be installed from there:

pip install matildapeak-yacker


Yacker documentation is available on Read The Docs.
