  • Wouldn't it make sense to build a .NET compiler for typescript?
    I love reading all the opinions here knowing this exists: https://github.com/aws/jsii

    Since you mention .NET Technologies, the language support for aws-cdk is provided by jsii, which is another place where contributions (all kinds thereof - not just code!) are very welcome.

    We are not actively working on Ruby support, so Python or TypeScript might be good alternatives for a Ruby shop. Feel free to "+1" Ruby support here: https://github.com/aws/jsii/issues/144Generally, language support can be requested through the "language-request" issues on the aws/jsii GitHub project. Ruby is tracked but we are not able to provide an ETA for it's availability at this point in time.

    Yes! We're actively working on that... You can track our progress towards the Developer Preview release at https://github.com/aws/jsii/projects/2
  • Ok, I think I've finally got somewhat of a handle on AWS. Let me so if i've got this right...

    Regarding CDK specifically, it uses JSii in the background which enables it to support multiple languages too.
  • Projen: The Next CDK Suprise!

    This does not mean you shouldn't use JSON or YAML et al, after all, they are being called the assembly language of the web. Does anyone here want to write x86 NASM or Intel-based assembly? Then don't! Work in a higher-level language like TypeScript/JavaScript, Python, C# family, Java, or soon GoLang. I'm betting Rust is next. All of these are in reach due to projen being based on JSII.
