Cdktf plan would be very convenient

In some situations we want to use cdktf to generate the plan file, but perform the actual update using plain terraform, as it gives better control around parallelism, locking, etc.

The current solution is to run cdktf deploy and then cancel the prompt. That feels a bit awkward, it would be really nice to have a cdktf plan command so we didn’t have to rely on exiting out at the prompt.

Is this something that’s planned?

I think you should be able to use cdktf diff which is also aliased by cdktf plan. You can find the docs here.

oh wow, you’re absolutely correct. Not sure how I managed to miss that one. Thanks!
