Discussion on: First look at Project Bicep, an Azure Resource Manager templates DSL

We have discussed this tool last week at work.
Currently copy and conditional resources are not supported which is very critical for us.

Too much way to go. Code looks cleaner now, but ARM has a pretty good intellisense vscode extension already, coupled with the json schema assistance. The biggest hurdle with ARM is the reusability/modularity of the code and nested & linked templates are not so easy to use without the boilerplate extra syntax and artifacts upload.

Any tooling is welcome in my opinion, and curious to see their solution about the above topic.
