Terraform Provider for the Hetzner Cloud

GitHub release Build Status


  • Terraform 0.12.x
  • Go 1.13.0 (to build the provider plugin)

Building the provider

Clone repository to: $GOPATH/src/

$ mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/; cd $GOPATH/src/
$ git clone

Enter the provider directory and build the provider

$ cd $GOPATH/src/
$ make build

Using the provider

if you are building the provider, follow the instructions to install it as a plugin. After placing it into your plugins directory, run terraform init to initialize it.

Developing the provider

If you wish to work on the provider, you'll first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.11+ is required). You'll also need to correctly setup a GOPATH, as well as adding $GOPATH/bin to your $PATH.

To compile the provider, run make build. This will build the provider and put the provider binary in the $GOPATH/bin directory.

$ make build
$ ./bin/terraform-provider-hcloud

In order to test the provider, you can simply run make test.

$ make test

In order to run the full suite of Acceptance tests run make testacc.

Note: Acceptance tests create real resources, and often cost money to run.
