Install Terraform on Ubuntu With Auto-complete

In this blog post, I will show you how I install the latest version of Terraform on Linux ubuntu with the Terraform CLI auto-complete.

Install

In my case, I am using Ubuntu20.x running on WSL. I prefer to use the WSL shell and not PowerShell because it gives me the auto-complete feature for many CLI tools like Kubectl.

Commands

The commands below will install the latest version of Terraform and the auto-complete for Terraform CLI.

curl -fsSL https://apt.releases.hashicorp.com/gpg | sudo apt-key add -
  apt-add-repository "deb [arch=amd64] https://apt.releases.hashicorp.com $(lsb_release 
 -cs) main"
 apt-get update && sudo apt-get install terraform
terraform -install-autocomplete

At this stage, the installation is completed. To get started to start a new terminal session for the auto-complete to load and work.
