Is there any chance the pulimi team would rethink stacks? I mean, why can’t a stack be created as part of pulimi itself? Why is it an outside resource? Let me run pulumi up and define/create/use a stack directly before creating all the AWS resources. I feel like this is a missed opportunity. Now I gotta wrap all my Pulumi call in a CI build script (in Ruby) before actually calling pulimi up, would be nicer to do that as part of pulimi (in TS/Go whatever)

Seems like you're asking for this: https://github.com/pulumi/pulumi/issues/2209

Not sure
It seems to overly complicate things. Just let me create or reference stack in one go within the API.
Copy code
let baseNetwork = new pulumi.Stack("pr-123", {
  config: {
    someStuff: "test", 
   },
   secrets: {
     somePassword: process.env["password"]
    }
});
if it doesn’t exist, it creates it. Every resource created after that is part of that stack.
I actually dislike the current design, my suggestion is an overhaul.

What happens if you create two or zero stacks?
