Utility to create yaml files from a template. Perfect for cloud-config or cloud-init creation.
Create a yaml file from a template and automatically embed local files.
Create builds for your cloud-init / cloud-config templates with ease!
This allows you to edit files and track in source control and wrap them in yaml files when needed. Supports compression to minimize yaml size (perfect to squeeze into startup scripts for AWS/EC2 instances).
pip install yamlifier cd testdata yamlifier VARIABLE1="funny person"
Check out the generated.yaml file in the local folder. Use -f to overwrite existing file and –help for more information.
#cloud-config #@ Comments like this will be removed from the generated file. runcmd: - [ /example/install.sh ] write_files: #@ 'local-content-path' will be replaced with content of local file. - path: /example/install.sh permissions:
"0755"owner: "root"local-content-path: example_files/install.sh #@ Embed binary file as an example (could be an executable) - path: /example/small_logo.png permissions: "644"owner: "root"local-content-path: example_files/small_logo.png #@ Embed archive with multiple small files #@ 'local-content-tar-path' will be replaced with an embedded archive with all files in folder. - path: /example/archive.tgz permissions: "644"owner: "root"local-content-tar-path: example_files/subfolder
Building & Testing using Docker
Check out the git repository and from the yamlifier folder:
docker build -t yamlifier2 -f docker/python2.Dockerfile . docker run -it -v $PWD:/code yamlifier2 bash
Based on the excellent ruamel.yaml library that allows manipulating yaml files while preserving comments and order.
