Nested stacks for the Serverless Framework!

Installation

Run npm install in your Serverless project.

$ npm install serverless-aws-nested-stacks --save-dev

Intro

Write your nested stacks as regular cloudformation and easily integrate them with the Serverless Framework!

This plugin handles:

  • Adding the appropriate AWS::Cloudformation::Stack type resources to the generated sls cloudformation template.
  • Uploading your nested stacks to your designated S3 deployment bucket.
