    Discontinued As part of our introduction to self-service publishing in the Terraform Registry, this copy of the provider has been archived, and ownership has been transferred to active maintainers in the community. Please see the new location on the Terraform Registry: https://registry.terraform.io/providers/kreuzwerker/docker/latest (by hashicorp)

    We all use open source projects to develop, run and evolve the software that we use both internally and at the clients who pay us for our expertise and experience. We find bugs, see the need to extend the functionality or stumble over a piece of documentation that is not fully clear and understandable. We know talented folks took precious time to design, create, maintain and evolve such open-source projects. As we are working on those projects heavily, we carve out time to make a contribution by creating bug reports and providing fixes for them; and if we see the need for a new feature, try our best to provide it. In our case, we wanted to deploy docker services into a docker swarm via terraform. As those resources were not supported at that time in 2018, we filed a colossal pull request, which led us to important learnings. We will talk about them later in detail in this post. First, let's explain how it evolved that we started maintaining this terraform provider.

  • terraform-website

    Discontinued Build configuration and partial content for terraform.io

    In 2017, after the provider-split in terraform 0.10, the docker provider was more or less abandoned and not actively maintained. We started contributing small features and bug fixes so we could use them in our deployment pipelines. We got in touch with several core contributors and began asking questions about the internals, especially about extending terraform, and how to write providers correctly. At that time, the documentation was still a work in progress, and for edge cases, there were no examples in the documentation yet. We started filing pull requests to update the documentation for this.

    Communication is crucial; that's why we want to keep it public, even if we receive private requests through other channels such as @gophers/terraform-provider-docker in Slack. We encourage engineers to open an issue or use the recently released discussions feature from GitHub. The code of conduct helped us set the etiquette guidelines, how we want to work together, and which tone and politeness we expect.

  • terraform-plugin-sdk

    Terraform Plugin SDK enables building plugins (providers) to manage any service providers or custom in-house solutions

    Currently, we are working on an internal refactoring to clean up code from the past years, even before we started the maintainership. Due to the upgrade to terraform-sdk-v2, we have new abilities for logging, debugging, and testing in isolation. Also, tools for the generation of documentation will simplify the process and keep it up-to-date. But first of all, we want to fix the reported bugs and clarify if they are still present after the update. We also plan to add support for running docker behind a jump host and provision docker containers. Our most aspiring goal is to come close to the docker CLI as possible. To achieve this, we plan to review which code we can reuse and integrate. For example, this has already been happened in the past to allow the converging possibility for docker services. We plan to add the generation of the changelog as we enforce already conventional commits from angular. After talking about the path towards milestone 3.0, we wrap it up with the conclusion.
