It will make Solus more developer friendly. If you ever had to set up and maintain complex infrastructure by hand (be it just for local testing), chances are you don't want to do that twice...
Terraform allows you to describe the infrastructure you wish to create in files and then to generate it. For example, you can write that you want two servers on AWS of type t2.micro, then you launch Terraform and it will create them for you.
The tool is used by every people doing devops as it helps to maintain the infrastructure.
In order for Solus to be my operating system for work, then I also need Terraform as I use it daily :)
Same here, I absolutely need this tool! I usually develop on Vagrant and then push to production with Terraform, all from the command line. It's very useful in devops because you can easily automate infrastructure, changing providers (AWS, DigitalOcean, etc.), for instance, or changing (provisioning) an existing server (with provisioners such as Chef or Salt), with only a few changes in the configuration file. In addition, by treating your infrastructure as code you can also submit it to version control.
This has sat in accepted for inclusion for 6 months now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a completed and landable patch. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
If you have already setup a solbuild environment that would be the easiest way. Just click Download Raw Diff, save it in your folder, apply it with patch < D3290.diff and then enter make. Else I would need to upload the *.eopkg file anywhere and you would have to trust me that there is no malware in it ?
