Workspaces as code (WAC) allows you to define and create new environments using workspace templates.
Workspace templates are written as YAML and have a
Coder looks for your workspace template at the following path:
The following is a sample workspace template that makes use of all available fields. Depending on your use case, you may not need all of the options available.
For detailed information on the fields available, see the subsequent sections of this article

Required. The amount of memory (in GB) to allocate to the environment.
Required. The amount of disk space (in GB) to allocate to the environment.
This section lists the commands that run within the environment after Coder builds the environment. See Configure for more information.
The list of commands to run when Coder starts an environment.
