I want to program my own package in Typescript. Is this possible at all and if so are there any examples? So far I have come across https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/resources/dynamic-providers, is that what I am looking for? All existing packages in the registry seem to have been implemented directly in go or with the tf bridge.

Hey @gorgeous-painting-25877, if you want to create an NPM package with your abstractions, dynamic providers is not what you need to look at. Have a look at component resources: https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/resources/components/ These are regular JS/TS classes. After you built your components, follow the regular NPM package creation and publishing documentation. Nothing more to it.

My goal is not to simplify or link existing elements, but to create new elements. I want to program a pulumi discord package with which you can define the discord as code

Ah, a Pulumi provider for Discord.

In terraform it would be a provider, here I was not sure if it is called provider as well

General terminology is a package, but we have three different kinds: • native provider package • terraform bridged provider package • component package You can read more on that here: https://www.pulumi.com/blog/pulumiup-pulumi-packages-multi-language-components/

So I can use existing providers in component packages but not create my own provider in e.g. typescript?

In your case, the fastest way is to take an existing Terraform Discord provider and bridge it to become a Pulumi provider package. There is not much manual work to that besides setting up a mapping from Terraform resource names to Pulumi resource names, complemented with a build setup.
At the moment, we do not have everything ready yet to have a pure Typescript Pulumi provider package. We only have this in Go for now.

Unfortunately, there is no sufficiently well supported discord terraform module. So I would have to teach myself Go to implement the whole thing. Is there a roadmap for provider in typescript?
