 vs. Stacktape

Terraform is a tool for provisioning infrastructure across multiple cloud providers.

However, it requires a lot of Cloud, DevOps and infrastructure knowledge. It doesn't handle packaging, applications deployments and many other tasks required to run your applications.

Stacktape's Advantages

Developer friendly

Stacktape is usable by every developer. No DevOps, Cloud or infrastructure expertise is required.

Fully featured development framework

Stacktape handles all of the common tasks required to develop and run cloud applications, including application deployments, testing, debugging & much more.

Optimized build process

Stacktape supports zero-config, heavily optimized parallel builds with advanced caching.

Programmatic SDK

Stacktape includes both CLI and SDK (currently supported for Javascript and Typescript). It allows you to easily build complicated deployment pipelines.

Editor extension

Stacktape comes with a VS code editor extension to further improve developer experience with validation, autocompletion and built-in documentation.

Development studio (coming soon)

Stacktape development studio is a graphical user interface. It's a convenient way to manage and test your applications and infrastructure.

Stacktape's Disadvantages

Not open-source

Stacktape is a premium product. For smaller applications, it offers a forever-free tier. For large applications and teams, it's still 10-20 times cheaper than hiring DevOps experts or consultants.

Smaller community

Being a new product, Stacktape doesn't have a large community yet.

AWS only

Stacktape works on top of AWS. Support for MS Azure and Google Cloud is planned. Besides AWS services, Stacktape also supports 3rd party providers (such as MongoDb Atlas).
