    Hi Infracost team, Can you give me a rough estimate when you think support for CloudFormation will be offered? I've seen the Github issue (#190) but was wondering if you had a general idea of when it will be available. Thanks

    Hey everyone! I’ve been trying to setup Infracost in CircleCI pipeline and managed to
    generate an Infracost JSON file as the baseline
    generate a diff by comparing the latest code change with the baseline
    and the Infracost PR comments gets published as expected, however for some reason the
    estimate remains:
    every time and it does not seem to update 📉 and 📈 emojis as changes are pushed --- What I’ve checked so far:
    [x] CircleCI Box: /tmp dir structure
    ├── base
    ├── circleci-1594698576
    ├── circleci-ts.sock
    ├── infracost.json
    └── infracost-base.json
    [x] ran cost estimate breakdown locally 
    infracost breakdown --path .
    It produced all the cloud resources that got detected while on the PR it showed only the ones that got changed --- on local and on the PR the overall cost however matches as expected! 
    [?] as I have CircleCI orb [circleci/terraform@3.1.0] for terraform, did terraform show -json plan.out > infracost-base.json so I can persist it and attach it within the Infracost job but somehow got lost on the way and not sure if that is needed as Infracost job itself already produced the terraform plan ...
    Any advise or direction on how to continue will be greatly appreciated!

    Hello 🙂 I keep running into the following error:
    2022-10-06T08:59:59.1441536Z Error: Failed to parse the Terragrunt code using the Terragrunt library:
    2022-10-06T08:59:59.1442071Z 2 errors occurred:
    2022-10-06T08:59:59.1442563Z 	* invalid character ',' looking for beginning of value
    2022-10-06T08:59:59.1443145Z 	* invalid character ',' looking for beginning of value
    i couldn't find anything posted about it previously on the channel and seems like the one github issue raised about this was never solved: this error shows up both with multiple and single directory usage. Would love to hear some tips about how to go around this 🙂

    Hi team, How do we integrate self-hosted setup with Github Actions? I am not able to find the exact variable to pass the self hosted domain details for Infracost?

    📣 Hey everyone, join us for the October community call tomorrow where I’ll give a demo of: • the new
    section of the usage file, so you can create separate files for different traffic profiles for things like S3 or Lambda, e.g. low/medium/high. • Weekly reports • GitHub App integration We’ll also have time to discuss other topics that the community wants to cover. 👉 Calendar invite and Zoom link: (I’ll share the recording afterwards)

    👋 Hey everyone, as we scale to a larger community (almost 700 people here!) it’s becoming clear that we need a dedicated #help channel so we can keep #general for discussions, feedback, intro and announcements. We also have #contributors if you’d like to work on the code base. There are quite a few advanced users here and it would help us a lot if you can also join #help to help new community members with questions/issues :infraheart:

    General question, how far along are you with building in support for Cloudformation and Pulumi? Are we talking weeks, months, or years? Do you have a published roadmap that we can follow? Thank you.

    Infracost v0.10.13 has been released! 😛artyparrot: This release has several bug fixes but the most exciting thing to me is that it lays the groundwork for automatic usage estimates:
    Infracost can now automatically estimate usage for AWS Lambda, S3, and DynamoDB using data from your cloud bill 📉💰. We’ll be adding coverage for more resources in future releases. Read more about the private beta here: or reach out to us at
    Thanks to everyone who contributed or raised issues!

    Hey everyone, we just released a pull request status filter for Infracost Cloud so you can filter on: • open PRs when reviewing the most expensive PRs. • on merged|deployed PRs when reviewing which PRs impacted your actual costs most. The PR status works out of the box for GitHub App integration, and you can also use our API to set the status for other CI/CD systems. Let us know if you have any feedback or run into any issues with it!

    Hi, we have been using infracost for a while to put comments in PR on github enterprise with atlantis. Now, we would like to use the Dashboard. Although I can see estimates under Repos for various repos, I am not able to get past step 4 (Set up one of our ci/cd integrations). We have a post workflow hook:
    - run: |
    # In order to stop commenting on PRs twice we need to check
    # if the Infracost output directory created in our 'plan' stage exists before continuing.
    if [ ! -d "/infracost/$BASE_REPO_OWNER-$BASE_REPO_NAME-$PULL_NUM" ]; then
    exit 0
    infracost comment github --repo $BASE_REPO_OWNER/$BASE_REPO_NAME \
    --pull-request $PULL_NUM \
    --path /infracost/$BASE_REPO_OWNER-$BASE_REPO_NAME-$PULL_NUM/'*'.json \
    --github-api-url $GH_API_URL \
    --github-token $ATLANTIS_GH_TOKEN \
    --behavior hide-and-new
    `# remove the Infracost output directory so that
    infracost comment
    is not # triggered on an `atlantis apply``
    rm -rf /infracost/$BASE_REPO_OWNER-$BASE_REPO_NAME-$PULL_NUM

    📣 November update: Actual costs, data transfer costs, and pull requests status filters! This month, we have a few big changes: • Actual costs and data transfer costs are in private beta. • See the status of all pull requests (open, merged, closed, deployed) and filter based on that to see their cost impact. • Slice and dice for all! Export to CSV. • Buy Infracost without talking to Hassan 😁 and public pricing.

    Hi guys, just testing out Infracost. I was surprised that changing region has no effect on costs, neither changing the node type… Check it out here Does that look good? I changed from 20 to 40 nodes and yes, it reflected this, but not the costs mentioned earlier
