I did a dive into this reproducing the behavior for terraform deployments that Atmos did.

If you have any programming experience in python, Go, or other language that builds good workflows/CLI tools I’d suggest that variant while promising will be very tedious to rebuild entire workflows in.

Not saying it doesn’t hold value, but for me I found it very inhibiting compared to just adding some Taskfile.yml or in my other case Mage (go based task runner) tasks. Yes, it’s not the same as defining in HCL, but honestly I really don’t want to normalize specialized tools in HCL if I can avoid it. If you are dealing with a ton of contributions from others with different languages and tools, it’s just easier to write the commands in your own task framework IMO.

Hope that is somewhat useful. I did give it a shot, but I think even Cloudposse is moving away from variant for their own Go based runner too, so likely they had a similar experience with just coding vs using another DSL to wrap up tools.

chaining those 2 together seems like an interesting idea

Just finished my latest blog to help people learn basic linux commands, these are essentials to know for DevOps, Kubernetes etc. https://bradmccoydev.medium.com/kubernetes-journey-basic-linux-commands-you-should-know-da4f95ceca5

If you are starting to get into Kubernetes, and don’t know basic Linux commands yet, you should probably learn how to walk before you can…

I would like to add two more cli commands:

• sed

• jq these two play important roles when updating files or reading json from output command, almost every devops cli tools produce json, and some times you need to read a value
