Terraform Download | Provision and Manage Resources in Any Cloud or Data Center


How to Download and Use Terraform




Terraform is an open source tool that allows you to automate the provisioning and management of infrastructure resources on any cloud or data center. It is one of the most popular tools for infrastructure as code, which is a practice of defining your infrastructure in human-readable configuration files that can be versioned, reused, and shared.

In this article, you will learn how to download and install Terraform on your system, and how to use it to create, update, and destroy infrastructure resources. You will also learn some of the benefits of using Terraform for your infrastructure needs.


How to Install Terraform




To install Terraform, you need to download the appropriate package for your operating system from the . You can also use popular package managers like Homebrew or Chocolatey to install Terraform.


Download the Appropriate Package for Your System




On the Terraform download page, you can find the latest version of Terraform for various operating systems and architectures. Choose the one that matches your system and download it as a zip archive.


Unzip the Package and Move the Binary to a Directory in Your PATH




After downloading Terraform, unzip the package and extract the terraform binary. This is the only file you need to run Terraform. You can delete any other files in the package.


Next, you need to move the terraform binary to a directory that is in your PATH environment variable. This will allow you to run terraform commands from any location in your terminal. The process of adding a directory to your PATH may vary depending on your operating system. For example, on Mac or Linux, you can use the following commands:



$ echo $PATH # print a colon-separated list of locations in your PATH


$ mv /Downloads/terraform /usr/local/bin/ # move the terraform binary to one of the locations in your PATH


Verify the Installation and Enable Tab Completion




To verify that Terraform is installed correctly, open a new terminal session and run the following command:



$ terraform -version # print the terraform version


You should see the output showing the Terraform version you downloaded and installed.


You can also enable tab completion for Terraform commands if you use either Bash or Zsh as your shell. To do so, run the following command:

How to Use Terraform




To use Terraform, you need to write configuration files that specify the cloud provider and the elements of your infrastructure. You can use any text editor or IDE to write these files, which use a syntax called HCL (HashiCorp Configuration Language). You can also use modules from the or write your own modules to reuse and share common configurations.


Write a Configuration File Using HCL Syntax




A configuration file is where you define what resources you want to create and manage with Terraform. A resource is any piece of infrastructure in your environment, such as a virtual machine, a network interface, or a load balancer.


A configuration file has a .tf extension and consists of one or more blocks. A block is a container for other content that defines a specific type of configuration object. For example, a provider block tells Terraform which cloud provider you are using, such as AWS or Azure. A resource block defines a resource that you want to create or manage.


The following is an example of a configuration file that creates an AWS + security_groups = (known after apply)


+ source_dest_check = true


+ subnet_id = (known after apply)


+ tags =


+ \"Name\" = \"terraform-example\"



+ tenancy = (known after apply)


+ vpc_security_group_ids = (known after apply)


+ ebs_block_device


+ delete_on_termination = (known after apply)


+ device_name = (known after apply)


+ encrypted = (known after apply)


+ iops = (known after apply)


+ kms_key_id = (known after apply)


+ snapshot_id = (known after apply)


+ tags = (known after apply)


+ throughput = (known after apply)


+ volume_id = (known after apply)


+ volume_size = (known after apply)


+ volume_type = (known after apply)



+ enclave_options


+ enabled = (known after apply)



+ ephemeral_block_device


+ device_name = (known after apply)


+ no_device = (known after apply)


+ virtual_name = (known after apply)



+ metadata_options


+ http_endpoint = (known after apply)


+ http_put_response_hop_limit = (known after apply)


+ http_tokens = (known after apply)



+ network_interface


+ delete_on_termination = (known after apply)


+ device_index = (known after apply)


+ network_interface_id = (known after apply)



+ root_block_device


+ delete_on_termination = (known after apply)


+ device_name = (known after apply)


+ encrypted = (known after apply)


+ iops = (known after apply)


+ kms_key_id = (known after apply)


+ tags = (known after apply)


+ throughput = (known after apply)


+ volume_id = (known after apply)


+ volume_size = (known after apply)


+ volume_type = (known after apply)


} Plan: 1 to add, 0 to change, 0 to destroy. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Note: You didn't specify an \"-out\" parameter to save this plan, so Terraform can't guarantee that exactly these actions will be performed if \"terraform apply\" is subsequently run. $ terraform apply # execute the plan aws_instance.example: Creating... aws_instance.example: Still creating... [10s elapsed] aws_instance.example: Still creating... [20s elapsed] aws_instance.example: Creation complete after 25s [id=i-0a1234567890b1234] Apply complete! Resources: 1 added, 0 changed, 0 destroyed. Outputs: example_public_ip = \"54.123.456.78\"


The output shows that Terraform created an EC2 instance with a public IP address and assigned it the name "terraform-example". You can use this IP address to connect to the instance via SSH.


Modify and Destroy Your Infrastructure as Needed




Terraform allows you to modify and destroy your infrastructure resources as easily as you create them. You can change the configuration file and run terraform plan and terraform apply again to update your infrastructure. For example, you can change the instance type or add more tags to your instance.


You can also use the terraform destroy command to delete all the resources that Terraform manages in your configuration file. This is useful when you want to clean up your infrastructure or start from scratch. Y
