The example AWS CloudFormation templates are written to show the features of AWS CloudFormation, and to serve as a starting point for you to create custom stacks. We provide the two stack applications below. In the following sections we describe the template, its parts, and detail any special features it may have. A link to the latest source code for the template is also included.
More sample templates are available at http://aws.amazon.com/cloudformation/aws-cloudformation-templates/. In addition, we add new sample templates regularly to provide examples for newly supported features. Please check the AWS CloudFormation Discussion Forum for announcements. Also, other AWS CloudFormation users may have developed templates to provide custom solutions, and may post their AWS CloudFormation solutions to the forum as well.
