terraform-docs asciidoc table ./my-terraform-module    # generate asciidoc table
terraform-docs asciidoc document ./my-terraform-module # generate asciidoc document
terraform-docs json ./my-terraform-module              # generate json
terraform-docs markdown ./my-terraform-module          # generate markdown table
terraform-docs markdown table ./my-terraform-module    # generate markdown table

Visit ./docs for all documentation.


The latest version can be installed using go get:

GO111MODULE="on" go get

NOTE: to download any version before v0.9.1 (inclusive) you need to use to old module namespace (segmentio):

# only for v0.9.1 and before
GO111MODULE="on" go get

NOTE: please use the latest go to do this, we use 1.15.1 but ideally go 1.14 or greater.

This will put terraform-docs in $(go env GOPATH)/bin. If you encounter the error terraform-docs: command not found after installation then you may need to either add that directory to your $PATH as shown here or do a manual installation by cloning the repo and run make build from the repository which will put terraform-docs in:

$(go env GOPATH)/src/$(uname | tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]')-amd64/terraform-docs

Stable binaries are also available on the releases page. To install, download the binary for your platform from "Assets" and place this into your $PATH:

curl -Lo ./terraform-docs$(uname | tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]')-amd64
chmod +x ./terraform-docs
mv ./terraform-docs /some-dir-in-your-PATH/terraform-docs

NOTE: Windows releases are in EXE format.

If you are a Mac OS X user, you can use Homebrew:

brew install terraform-docs

Windows users can install using Chocolatey:

choco install terraform-docs

Alternatively you also can run terraform-docs as a container:

docker run

NOTE: Docker tag latest refers to latest stable released version and edge refers to HEAD of master at any given point in time.
