Prerequisites Summary

You’ll need to set up the following:

  1. A Terraspace project repo on GitHub
  2. The terraspace_ci_github gem
  3. Configure Terraspace Cloud

A Terraspace project repo on GitHub

If you need a Terraspace project, you can go through one of the Getting Started Guides. For this guide, we’ll creating a simple stack that creates a random_pet resource.

Create a GitHub repo and push the project to it. Here are some example commands

git init
git add .
git commit -m 'first commit'
git remote add origin git@github.com:USER/REPO.git # replace USER and REPO with your own info
git push -u origin main

The terraspace_ci_github gem

Double-check and make sure terraspace_ci_github is in your Terraspace project’s Gemfile. It probably looks something like this.

Gemfile

source "https://rubygems.org"

gem "terraspace"
gem "rspec-terraspace"
gem "terraspace_plugin_aws"
gem "terraspace_ci_github" # <= Should have this

The Gemfile also happens to be using AWS cloud plugin. You can use any cloud plugin, of course.

Also, make sure that you’re using Terraspace 2.0 or above. You can check with bundle info terraspace and should see something like:

$ bundle info terraspace
* terraspace (2.0.1)

If not, you can update terraspace with

bundle update terraspace

Or more generally, update all gem dependencies

bundle update

Configure Terraspace Cloud

Configure the cloud.org and cloud.project settings.

config/app.rb

Terraspace.configure do |config|
  config.cloud.org = "boltops"  # replace with your org name
  config.cloud.project = "main" # replace with your project name
end

You’ll also need to export TS_TOKEN to your environment. You want want to add it to your

~/.bash_profile

export TS_TOKEN=token-123 # Example only. Replace with your own token

For more details, see Terraspace Cloud.

Next, we’ll generate the CI structure.
