Renders Tera templates using a toml config file as the variable source.


First and foremost you will need to install Rust, recommended via Homebrew:

brew install rust

Then build the tool:

cargo build

OR run the tool directly:

cargo run config.toml template.yaml qa system1

TmpToml Breakdown


config.toml is the main configuration file for the tool. It contains the variables and values that are used to render the templates. This file contains PUBLIC values that can be checked into source control. This file contains the following sections and secondary sections:


Sections are used to define the environment and anything that is shared amongst the templates.

  • qa
  • production

Secondary Sections

Secondary sections are used to define the specifics for each service/system.

  • system1
  • system2


Each template file contains variables and values are defined in the config.toml file. Variables are specificed using the {{variableName}} syntax. If a variable exists in the templated file but not in the config.toml, TmpToml will throw an error and the template will not be rendered. If a variable exists in the config.toml file but not in the referenced templated file, TmpToml will still render the template.


First render the template:

./tmptoml config.toml template.yaml qa system1

The breakdown of the above command:

  • ./tmptoml is the TmpToml binary.
  • config.toml is the path to the configuration file.
  • template.yaml is the path to the template file.
  • qa is the primary section/environment.
  • system1 is the name of the secondary section.

TmpToml renders the template file to STDOUT.
