Python for yamlstratus builder
YAML Stratus provides extensions to YAML that make it amenable to use with AWS CloudFormation, as well as a python binding, and a tool for converting to the standard JSON used by CloudFormation.
Standard YAML capabilities not part of JSON:
- back references
- block literals
Note also that JSON is YAML, so familiar JSON data can be embedded within YAML.
Extension to YAML provided by YAML Stratus:
- !include - YAML files can include other YAML files
- !param - YAML files can include parameters
- !merge - Allows the merging of data from two source data hierarchies
