Install brew, PowerShell and Terraform on my MacBook Pro running OS X

Install brew, PowerShell, Terraform and Postman on my MacBook Pro running OS X

I have some scripting experience with perl, python and I have been doing some Visual Basic programming back in the days but I never really used Terraform. PowerCLI is not new for me as I created some scripts in the past. After reading some blogs and watching some YouTube video’s I realised I had chosen the right path for me. But where do I start? What script do I use to achieve what result?

Start with Brew

Brew is a package manager for OS X. With this package manager we install Terraform and PowerShell

Install Terraform (using Brew)

Terraform is latest version available (as the time of writing) of Terraform is 0.12. Terraform 0.12 coding syntax may be different and most example you find are the internet are written for 0.11 and before. For this reason I decided to install both versions of Terraform and switch between them when I require this.

Install Terraform v0.11

ihoogendoor-a01:~ iwanhoogendoorn$ brew install terraform@0.11

==> Caveats
terraform@0.11 is keg-only, which means it was not symlinked into /usr/local,
because this is an alternate version of another formula.
If you need to have terraform@0.11 first in your PATH run:
  echo ‘export PATH=“/usr/local/opt/terraform@0.11/bin:$PATH”’ >> ~/.bash_profile

Install Terraform v0.12

I already installed v0.11 but you can run the same command for updating and installing Terraform 0.12.

When you run the following command, Brew will install the latest version of Terraform:

ihoogendoor-a01:~ iwanhoogendoorn$ brew install terraform


Terraform v0.11 and v0.12 side by side

Verify if v0.11 is available:

Your version of Terraform is out of date! The latest version
is 0.12.23. You can update by downloading from www.terraform.io/downloads.html 
ihoogendoor-a01:bin iwanhoogendoorn$


Verify if v0.12 Is available:

ihoogendoor-a01:bin iwanhoogendoorn$


If you are using multiple versions of Terraform code that requires different Terraform versions you can install `tfenv`

First you need to unlink the current version you are running:

ihoogendoor-a01:#nested-routing-test iwanhoogendoorn$ brew unlink terraform
Unlinking /usr/local/Cellar/terraform/0.12.23… 0 symlinks removed


Then you install `tfenv`:

Now we install a specific older version of Terraform:

ihoogendoor-a01:#nested-routing-test iwanhoogendoorn$ tfenv install 0.11.14
[INFO] Installing Terraform v0.11.14
[INFO] Downloading release tarball from https://releases.hashicorp.com/terraform/0.11.14/terraform_0.11.14_darwin_amd64.zip

Then we install a more recent version of Terraform:

ihoogendoor-a01:#nested-routing-test iwanhoogendoorn$ tfenv install 0.12.20
[INFO] Installing Terraform v0.12.20
[INFO] Downloading release tarball from https://releases.hashicorp.com/terraform/0.12.20/terraform_0.12.20_darwin_amd64.zip

[INFO] Installation of terraform v0.12.20 successful
[INFO] Switching to v0.12.20
[INFO] Switching completed


Then we install the latest version of Terraform:

ihoogendoor-a01:#nested-routing-test iwanhoogendoorn$ tfenv install 0.12.24
[INFO] Installing Terraform v0.12.24
[INFO] Downloading release tarball from https://releases.hashicorp.com/terraform/0.12.24/terraform_0.12.24_darwin_amd64.zip

[INFO] Installation of terraform v0.12.24 successful
[INFO] Switching to v0.12.24
[INFO] Switching completed


As you can see every time you install a new version it automatically switches to that latest installed version. If you want to switch back to a previous installed version you can do this as well:

ihoogendoor-a01:#nested-routing-test iwanhoogendoorn$ tfenv use 0.12.20
[INFO] Switching to v0.12.20
[INFO] Switching completed
ihoogendoor-a01:#nested-routing-test iwanhoogendoorn$
