Recursive delete of .terraform directory


Sometimes your file system can collect alot of .terraform directories, or something just isn't right with terraform


find ./ -type d -name ".terraform" -exec rm -rf {} +

Tip of the day

You can set up a zsh or bash alias for this

Edit ~/.zshrc and add the below

alias tdel='find ./ -type d -name ".terraform" -exec rm -rf {} +'

Then run source ~/.zshrc to refresh your current session

Now you can simply type tdel anywhere and it will delete .terraform directories
