    is Pulumi ready for prime time? I just tried creating an EC2 instance using Pulumi -> works. Now I terminate the instance within the AWS console. I expect that when I run
    pulumi up
    , pulumi will detect the difference and attempt to create another instance. Instead it keeps thinking and saying that nothing has changed? (this is on the latest version of Pulumi, v3.37.1, btw)

    Thanks. I will try that. I'm just used to not needing to do any sort of refresh with Terraform

    Yeh this is just a difference in default's. Terraform defaults to doing a refresh before every operation, pulumi doesn't. Doing it is slightly safer, not doing it is a lot faster. You can either call
    pulumi refresh
    or
    pulumi up --refresh
    or add
    options: refresh: true
    to your Pulumi.yaml file.
