Are environments used in the example projects?
If so, maybe a cheeky nudge towards those in the blog?

they are not… possibly a good idea, although i would generally avoid complicating the “getting started” steps with advanced cases
but it’s interesting to think what an MVP example repo for environments would look like

Going back to a previous comment I made a while back - “getting started” is nice, but we really need a “kitchen sink” to show something more than trivial deployments. Opinionated kitchen sink, anyways. It would also be nice to use when pointing people at BUILD examples of common use cases.

yea. as before, i think “opinionated kitchen sink” amounts to matching some relatively large group’s concrete use case, rather than necessarily being “everything”.

Possibly. I see it more as some level of multi language repo. With JS support, an obvious example seems to be a basic frontend client + backend API gateway - and then build off of that (e.g. Protobufs to other micro services with different languages, blah blah).

yea, exactly. JS plus some realistic backend language makes sense.

Just that would probably cover a surprising number of my pants deployments
And then, in my cases, there are some utilities or services running - but typically just python or rust right now
