Call For Maintainers

This plugin, along with others like it, is now maintained by the HashiVim organization, which is looking for additional maintainers and contributors. See the HashiVim home page for further information.

Overview: vim-terraform

This plugin adds a :Terraform command that runs terraform, with tab completion of subcommands. It also provides syntax highlighting, indentation and more for HCL and Terraform-related files.


With Vim packages:

git clone ~/.vim/pack/plugins/start/vim-terraform

If you prefer to use a plugin manager, go ahead.


Settings are documented in the help.

Updating vim-terraform

Note, this is only for maintainers of the vim-terraform project.

When a new version of Terraform drops, you can run the following where x.x.x is a version such as 0.11.11

./ x.x.x

At this point, add the modified files to a git branch and open a pull request.

git checkout -b "feature/update-to-terraform-$VERSION"
git add $FILE
git commit -m "Message about update"
git push

Add another maintainer to the pull request and await confirmation.
