To generate Terraform code using a Bash shell script, you can utilize Python within the script. Here’s an example of how you can achieve this:

1. Create a new Bash script file

Open a text editor and create a new file, for example,

2. Add the shebang line

Start the script with the shebang line to specify that it should be interpreted using Bash:


3. Install Required Libraries

Since you’ll be using Python within the script, ensure that Python and pip are installed on your system. You also need to install the hclwriter library. To do this, you can include the installation commands within the script:

# Install required Python library
pip install hclwriter

4. Add Python code within the script

Insert the Python code that generates the Terraform code into your Bash script. You can use a heredoc to embed the Python code:

python3 - <<EOF
# Python code here

5. Include the Python code

Within the heredoc section, you can add the Python code to generate the Terraform code. Refer to the Python code example from the previous response and paste it within the heredoc section.

6. Make the script executable

Make the Bash script executable using the chmod command:

chmod +x

7. Run the script

Execute the script using the following command:


The script will execute the embedded Python code and generate the Terraform code based on your requirements. You can modify the Python code within the script to fit your specific use case. Remember to save the generated Terraform code to a file using Python’s file-writing capabilities.

Note: Ensure that Python and the required libraries are installed on your system before running the script.
