What is Stacktape

What is Stacktape?

Stacktape is a cloud-native framework. It's a command-line tool that runs on your machine.

It handles infrastructure provisioning and management, code packaging, application deployments, domain and secret management, monitoring, logging, testing, debugging and much more.

Stacktape is built on top of AWS. It also integrates other 3rd party service providers (such as MongoDB Atlas).

☑️ Remove the complexity from building cloud applications

Stacktape is usable by every developer. With Stacktape, you don't need to be a Cloud or DevOps expert to build a production-ready cloud application.

☑️ Reduce the amount of required configuration by up to 99%

Stacktape handles DevOps tasks for you. You no longer need to write 100's or 1000's of lines of configuration just to deploy a simple application.

☑️ Improve developer experience

Stacktape is made for developers, by developers. It's fast, intuitive, has helpful error messages with hints & much more. It also comes with a VS code extension.
