  • Version 1 Terraform AWS OpenVPN Ephemeral Released!

    Another thing I realized was that using local Terraform state and passing it around in CI/CD for GitLab and CircleCI was also completely unnecessary and can be efficiently changed by using Terragrunt. Terragrunt has a superior way than Terraform to set up a remote S3/DynamoDB backend for your Terraform State and Locks, and example terragrunt.hcl files are provided in the updated examples.

    Flexibility is one of the core advantages of Atlantis, as it allows easy integration with other Terraform-helper tools(e.g., tfsec, checkov, Infracost, or Terratag). It can work with Terraform wrappers, such as Terragrunt, out of the box and even add some of Terragrunt’s features to vanilla Terraform – like before and after hooks for every execution stage (init, plan, apply, etc.).

    Some teams continue running Terraform locally, but they add custom tooling, pre-commit hooks, and wrappers(e.g., Terragrunt) to enhance the core Terraform workflow. There are different wrapper tools to choose from that provide extra functionalities, such as keeping your configuration DRY, managing remote state, and managing different environments. Other teams prefer writing their own custom wrapper scripts to prepare Terraform working directories according to some standards.

    Last but not least, once you get a good understanding on Terraform and IaC in general, consider looking into other tools around Terraform, like Terragrunt which is a nice wrapper that focuses on DRY code. Also take Pulumi into consideration, which is another tool for IaC which in turn uses general purpose programming languages.
