This article is for those looking for a detailed and straightforward guide on installing Terraform on macOS.

Terraform is HashiCorp’s infrastructure as a code tool. It lets you define resources and infrastructure in human-readable, declarative configuration files, and manages your infrastructure’s lifecycle. Using Terraform has several advantages over manually managing your infrastructure.

In this guide, we will consider the case when you already have the Homebrew package manager installed.

To install Homebrew, you can use the command:

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL"

This guide covers installation using the terminal emulator iTerm2.

We connect the repository with formulas for Homebrew using the command:

brew tap hashicorp/tap

Nope! Each article is crafted by me, fueled by a deep passion for Docker and decades of IT expertise. While I employ AI to refine the grammar—ensuring the technical details are conveyed clearly—the insights, strategies, and guidance are purely my own. This approach may occasionally activate AI detectors, but you can be certain that the underlying knowledge and experiences are authentically mine.
