aws feature; not simple, but at least possible

During this import operation, you need to provide the following.

  • A template that describes the resources that will be in the new stack and the resource configurations. Each resource in your template must have a DeletionPolicy attribute.

  • A unique identifier for each target resource. Visit the appropriate service console to obtain unique identifiers.

gitpod-io/gitpod: Gitpod automates the provisioning of ready-to-code development environments.

"Gitpod is an open-source Kubernetes application for ready-to-code developer environments that spins up fresh, automated dev environments for each task, in the cloud, in seconds. It enables you to describe your dev environment as code and start instant, remote and cloud-based developer environments directly from your browser or your Desktop IDE.

Tightly integrated with GitLab, GitHub, and Bitbucket, Gitpod automatically and continuously prebuilds dev environments for all your branches. As a result, team members can instantly start coding with fresh, ephemeral and fully-compiled dev environments - no matter if you are building a new feature, want to fix a bug or do a code review."
