Package tfconfig is a helper library that does careful, shallow parsing of Terraform modules to provide access to high-level metadata while remaining broadly compatible with configurations targeting various different Terraform versions.

    This packge focuses on describing top-level objects only, and in particular does not attempt any sort of processing that would require access to plugins. Currently it allows callers to extract high-level information about variables, outputs, resource blocks, provider dependencies, and Terraform Core dependencies.

    This package only works at the level of single modules. A full configuration is a tree of potentially several modules, some of which may be references to remote packages. There are some basic helpers for traversing calls to modules at relative local paths, however.

    This package employs a "best effort" parsing strategy, producing as complete a result as possible even though the input may not be entirely valid. The intended use-case is high-level analysis and indexing of externally-facing module characteristics, as opposed to validating or even applying the module.

    func IsModuleDir

    func IsModuleDir(dir string) bool

      IsModuleDir checks if the given path contains terraform configuration files. This allows the caller to decide how to handle directories that do not have tf files.

      func IsModuleDirOnFilesystem

      func IsModuleDirOnFilesystem(fs FS, dir string) bool

        IsModuleDirOnFilesystem checks if the given path in the given FS contains Terraform configuration files. This allows the caller to decide how to handle directories that do not have tf files.

        func LoadModule

        func LoadModule(dir string) (*Module, Diagnostics)

          LoadModule reads the directory at the given path and attempts to interpret it as a Terraform module.

          func LoadModuleFromFile

          func LoadModuleFromFile(file *hcl.File, mod *Module) hcl.Diagnostics

            LoadModuleFromFile reads given file, interprets it and stores in given Module This is useful for any caller which does tokenization/parsing on its own e.g. because it will reuse these parsed files later for more detailed interpretation.

            func LoadModuleFromFilesystem

            func LoadModuleFromFilesystem(fs FS, dir string) (*Module, Diagnostics)

              LoadModuleFromFilesystem reads the directory at the given path in the given FS and attempts to interpret it as a Terraform module

              func RenderMarkdown

              func RenderMarkdown(w io.Writer, module *Module) error


              type DiagSeverity

              type DiagSeverity rune

                DiagSeverity describes the severity of a Diagnostic.

                const DiagError DiagSeverity = 'E'

                  DiagError indicates a problem that prevented proper processing of the configuration. In the precense of DiagError diagnostics the result is likely to be incomplete.

                  const DiagWarning DiagSeverity = 'W'

                    DiagWarning indicates a problem that the user may wish to consider but that did not prevent proper processing of the configuration.

                    func (DiagSeverity) MarshalJSON

                    func (s DiagSeverity) MarshalJSON() ([]byte, error)

                      MarshalJSON is an implementation of encoding/json.Marshaler

                      type Diagnostic

                      type Diagnostic struct {
                      	Severity DiagSeverity `json:"severity"`
                      	Summary  string       `json:"summary"`
                      	Detail   string       `json:"detail,omitempty"`
                      	// Pos is not populated for all diagnostics, but when populated should
                      	// indicate a particular line that the described problem relates to.
                      	Pos *SourcePos `json:"pos,omitempty"`

                        Diagnostic describes a problem (error or warning) encountered during configuration loading.

                        type Diagnostics

                        type Diagnostics []Diagnostic

                          Diagnostics represents a sequence of diagnostics. This is the type that should be returned from a function that might generate diagnostics.

                          func (Diagnostics) Err

                          func (diags Diagnostics) Err() error

                            Err returns an error representing the receiver if the receiver HasErrors, or nil otherwise.

                            The returned error can be type-asserted back to a Diagnostics if needed.

                            func (Diagnostics) Error

                            func (diags Diagnostics) Error() string

                            func (Diagnostics) HasErrors

                            func (diags Diagnostics) HasErrors() bool

                              HasErrors returns true if there is at least one Diagnostic of severity DiagError in the receiever.

                              If a function returns a Diagnostics without errors then the result can be assumed to be complete within the "best effort" constraints of this library. If errors are present then the caller may wish to employ more caution in relying on the result.

                              type FS

                              type FS interface {

                                    	Diagnostics Diagnostics `json:"diagnostics,omitempty"`

                                      Module is the top-level type representing a parsed and processed Terraform module.

                                        	Pos SourcePos `json:"pos"`

                                          ModuleCall represents a "module" block within a module. That is, a declaration of a child module from inside its parent.

                                          type Output

                                          type Output struct {

                                                      ResourceMode represents the "mode" of a resource, which is used to distinguish between managed resources ("resource" blocks in config) and data resources ("data" blocks in config).

                                                      const DataResourceMode ResourceMode = 'D'

                                                          SourcePos is a pointer to a particular location in a source file.

                                                          This type is embedded into other structs to allow callers to locate the definition of each described module element. The SourcePos of an element is usually the first line of its definition, although the definition can be a little "fuzzy" with JSON-based config files.
