Providers (as in cloud providers) organise loading config files from disk. Some concepts (such as regions) don’t make sense for local Minikube clusters so multiple ways of organising config files have been created to more closely mirror the target cloud a cluster will run on.
When you’re configuring a stack you need to specify the
provider. Supported options are currently:
aws- supports regions
local- doesn’t support regions
providers directory in the sample-project for an example of how to layout variables directories for each provider.
