I am going to show you the way to compile Terraform by Hashicorp from source code using Docker. By using Docker, we save time since we do not need to install golang and we don’t have to setup the development environment. So save time and hit the hay.
In some cases you will need to use Terraform from
master branch or test a
feature under development, Whether you are collaborating with the project, or
just requiring a fix or feature that is in a pull request.
I am assuming that you have Docker engine installed and running.
Then, let’s go to the point, there are only two commands:
~/git ❯ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:hashicorp/terraform.git
~/git/terraform master ❯ docker run --rm -v $(pwd):/go/src/github.com/hashicorp/terraform -w /go/src/github.com/hashicorp/terraform -e XC_OS=linux -e XC_ARCH=amd64 golang:latest bash -c "apt-get update && apt-get install -y zip && make bin"
When the compilation process ends, you will be able to use the Hashicorp
Terraform binary from the
bin folder as follows:
❯ ~/git/terraform/bin/terraform -v Terraform v0.10.0
- Hashicorp Terraform GitHub Repository
- Golang Docker Image
- Use Terraform from Docker Images by @lgallard
