I wanted to share a project that I’ve been working on which allows deploying of Tor relays through terraform.
The code and documentation is here: https://github.com/andrewmichaelsmith/terrator
The focus is on running on cloud hosting providers, currently supported cloud services are digitalocean, vultr and heztner. It works - I’m using it to run some tor relays right now. There are some limitations (documented on github) though and it is still very much a work in progress.
As a bit of background, after reading the call to deploy more bridges I got thinking how useful it could be to deploy a number of bridges by simply editing a config file and pushing ‘go’. After a bit of tinerking - torraform was born.
Personally I have this hooked up to Github and Terraform Cloud (both free), meaning I can simply edit 1 file in a git repo to create new relays.
Keen to hear feedback or questions!
