Packer Template post-processor

Create templated files for post-process images. For example, a Terraform config file that includes the built AMIs.

travis build status for packer-post-processor-template Coverage Status

Usage

Add the post-processor to your packer template:

{
    "post-processors": [
      {
        "type": "template",
        "template_file": "test.tfvars",
        "output_file": "out.tfvars"
      }
    ]
}

Check out amazon_test.json and docker_test.json for examples. The Docker test is not particularly useful but it does run quickly for testing purposes.

$ go get github.com/saymedia/packer-post-processor-template
