Makefile to use as a simple interface for Terraform
Full Description

Makefile for Terraform users

This repository provides a Makefile to give you a simple interface for Terraform.


  • Simplify your CLI terraform runs
  • Don't Repeat Yourself while typing terraform commands
  • Easier adoption for people that are not used to Terraform
  • Document common usage
  • Unique entrypoint script for credentials management (only for AWS, Azure, DigitalOcean, Google and Scaleway for now)
    • either passing ENV variables. E.g. <PROVIDER>_<ENV>_SECRET will be mapped to DIGITALOCEAN_TOKEN if provider=do is provided as variable
    • either using pass as local secret manager. E.g. password terraform/<provider>/<env>/secret will be mapped to DIGITALOCEAN_TOKEN if provider=do is provided as variable
    • either using vault as distributed secret manager (Only for AWS credentials for now). E.g. by using VAULT_ADDR and either VAULT_ROLE_ID + VAULT_SECRET_ID or directly a VAULT_TOKEN your credentials will automatically be fetched into your vault.


Package install

(for now packages are only published in Github releases)

dpkg -i tf-make_<version>.deb

Manual install

Simply download the Makefile and the files in safe place.

mkdir -p /opt/terraform
cd /opt/terraform
wget -N{Makefile,}

Then you will need to add the tf-make binary (it's a simple bash script) in your $PATH. WARNING: you'll need to change the Makefile path in the tf-make file.


This makefile assumes your terraform configuration files are stored as such:

├── aws
│   ├── prod
│   │   └──
│   └── test
│       └──
├── do
│   └── prod
│       └──
├── google
│   ├── prod
│   │   └──
│   └── test
│       └──
└── scaleway
    └── prod

I.e. providers/<provider>/<env>/*.tf
