Stacktape is very similar to AWS SAM. You describe your stack with a simple YAML (or Typescript) configuration and type
stacktape / sam deploy. Everything else is taken care of for you.
The difference is that Stacktape supports significantly more use-cases. It also offers several productivity-related features (local development studio, visual stack builder, VS code extension).
Stacktape supports significantly more use-cases. It gives you the full power of AWS, allowing you to deploy Containers, SQL and NoSQL databases, API Gateways, MongoDb, Redis & more.
Stacktape development studio makes it easy to debug, test and manage your applications.
Stacktape extension validates and autocompletes your configuration files and comes with a built-in documentation.
If you don't like writing YAML, Stacktape allows you to configure your stacks using a graphical interface.
Stacktape supports zero-config, heavily optimized parallel builds with content-aware caching.
Easily build complicated deployment pipelines in your favorite programming language.
Stacktape is a freemium product. While it's not completely free, it comes with a generous free tier that works for small to mid size projects and teams.
Being a new product, Stacktape does not have a large community yet.
