AWS Docker Guide

Here’s a guide to using Terraspace, Docker and AWS.


To use Cloud provider with Terraspace and Docker container you should mount the credentials.

docker run --rm -ti -v $HOME/.aws:/root/.aws boltops/terraspace

Editing Files

It is useful to be able to edit files with an text editor in your normal OS. You can do this by mounting a folder from your current host to a volume. Here an example that mounts the current working directory to the /work folder within the Docker container.

docker run --rm -ti -v $HOME/.aws:/root/.aws -v `pwd`:/work boltops/terraspace

Env Variables

Using env files is also handy. Here’s an example dev.env file.


And how to use the env file.

docker run --rm -ti -v $HOME/.aws:/root/.aws -v `pwd`:/work --env-file dev.env boltops/terraspace
