Hey guys, so I was looking at pulumi/pulumi/runtime/config.js and I noticed that the config file that we create for each stack, is set into an env variable called
Copy code
This means that when we do
Copy code
Pulumi Up
the file is loaded as a string and parsed into a map. This would mean that if we wanted to have a hierarchical config structure for the config, we need to append the base config to this env_variable
Copy code
. My suggestion seems so hacky. As a team we decided to create a wrapper class for the config that reads from the pulumi Config class and also from a file. This way we can have a one level hierarchical structure.
