  • Top Terraform Tools to Know in 2024
    19 projects | dev.to | 26 Mar 2024
    ‍Terraformer is a CLI tool developed by Google that generates Terraform files from existing infrastructure (reverse Terraform), simplifying the process of adopting Terraform in existing environments and speeding up the initial setup process. Terraformer supports multiple cloud providers, including AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, and others.
  • Terraformer + refactoring with 'moved' blocks
    1 project | /r/Terraform | 23 Jul 2023
    Looking into efficient ways to import existing infrastructure. Using Terraformer to get the everything into Terraform and then refactoring into modules, for_each, etc. using moved blocks seems like it would be a good approach. Refactoring them to use existing modules from providers will take a little work and likely going back and forth with terraform plan, and assuming many things won't translate straight across because of what resources a module might be creating and how they are creating them.
  • The Future of Terraform: ClickOps
    5 projects | /r/Terraform | 15 Jun 2023
    We had thought about the ability to convert HCL to Go, but not much thought in querying existing infra to generate HCL (like terraformer). If you want to experiment building on top of Lingon then please go ahead! I’d be happy to help provide the context from Lingon.
  • How do you glue Terraform resources together?
    1 project | /r/devops | 4 Jun 2023
    If "ClickOps" is your starting point, as you mention, you could try creating a new scratch cloud provider account, do all your "ClickOps", then use a TF export tool (e.g., Terraformer) to see the exported TF resources to find all the references to other TF resources in the cloud resource dependency chain.
  • Strategies for converting an existing deployment to IaC?
    2 projects | /r/devops | 31 May 2023
    I haven't worked with any of the ones that purport to work with AWS, but a quick Google shows terraformer and Terracognita as options - maybe look into trying those out?
  • Migration to gcp from aws.
    2 projects | /r/aws | 22 May 2023
    This maybe a bit more complicated if you're not into coding/terraform but I'd use terraformer to convert all of your infrastructure from implementation to code while in AWS, then switch providers and with a bit of jiggly of the code implement your infra into gcs as IaC and keep it that way if/when you switch again.
  • Quick terraform noob question about the tfstate

    Maybe terraformer could help. I never tried it personally . https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/terraformer

    I've been wondering if this tool is any good. https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/terraformer/blob/master/docs/aws.md
  • Migrate from terragrunt to terraform

    If you've to write the code (I assumed you just needed to reorganize it without TG) maybe consider https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/terraformer
