    Terraform module for provisioning an EKS cluster

    I know it's still Terraform, but I find the cloudposse modules really useful for setting things up.

  • up

    UP - Ultimate Provisioner CLI (by upcmd)

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • terraform-aws-ecs-atlantis

    Terraform module for deploying Atlantis as an ECS Task

    Spin up an EKS cluster with VPC, subnets, etc. using only terraform code. Spin up a tool like Atlantis to be able to deploy from GitHub. Should take a week or two and get you going.
