Hi all, relatively new to Pulumi but have been doing IaC with Terraform/Terragrunt for a while. I have a question about inputs/outputs across packages/projects. A concrete example: We have an IaC package in a monorepo where we define a VPC. We wish to use the VPC id in the (TypeScript) configuration of a serverless framework package. Previously we did this by putting the VPC id in an AWS secret and importing it in the serverless config, but I was curious to hear if there are alternatives with Pulumi? I have been browsing the docs, but I have not come across anything similar

if you intend to keep using serverless to deply the functions, that would work fine. If you want to deploy the functions with pulumi, you could use a stack reference

I've looked into Pulumi for the function deployment, but it seems more pain than it is worth (with the packaging, tree shaking, layers, ...) - similar to why we don't use Terraform for lambdas
