A multi-language, multi-cloud development platform -- your code, your cloud, your team
Pulumi is a cloud development platform that makes creating cloud programs easy and productive.
Author cloud programs in your favorite language and Pulumi will automatically keep yourinfrastructure up-to-date. Skip the YAML and just write code. Pulumi is multi-language, multi-cloudand fully extensible in both its engine and ecosystem of packages.
To install the pre-built SDK, please run curl -fsSL https://get.pulumi.com/ | sh, or see detailed installationinstructions on the project page. Read on if you want to install from source.
To build the Pulumi CLI from source, you may simply run:
$ go get -u github.com/pulumi/pulumi
This installs the pulumi binary to $GOPATH/bin.
To do anything interesting with Pulumi, you will need an SDK for your language of choice. The SDK installation comeswith pre-built language providers, however the make flow below will create a complete SDK distribution for you.
Building and Testing
To build a complete Pulumi SDK, ensure $GOPATH is set, and clone into a standard Go workspace:
$ git clone email@example.com:pulumi/pulumi $GOPATH/src/github.com/pulumi/pulumi$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/pulumi/pulumi
The first time you build, you must make ensure to install dependencies and perform other machine setup:
$ make ensure
In the future, you can synch dependencies simply by running dep ensure explicitly:
$ dep ensure
At this point you can run make to build and run tests:
This installs the pulumi binary into $GOPATH/bin, which may now be run provided make exited successfully.
The Makefile also supports just running tests (make test_all or make test_fast), just running the linter(make lint), just running Govet (make vet), and so on. Please just refer to the Makefile for the full list of targets.
The Pulumi tools have extensive logging built in. In fact, we encourage liberal logging in new code, and adding newlogging when debugging problems. This helps to ensure future debugging endeavors benefit from your sleuthing.
All logging is done using Google's Glog library. It is relatively bare-bones, andadds basic leveled logging, stack dumping, and other capabilities beyond what Go's built-in logging routines offer.
The pulumi command line has two flags that control this logging and that can come in handy when debugging problems.The --logtostderr flag spews directly to stderr, rather than the default of logging to files in your temp directory.And the --verbose=n flag (-v=n for short) sets the logging level to n. Anything greater than 3 is reserved fordebug-level logging, greater than 5 is going to be quite verbose, and anything beyond 7 is extremely noisy.
For example, the command
$ pulumi preview --logtostderr -v=5
is a pretty standard starting point during debugging that will show a fairly comprehensive trace log of a compilation.
