Expanding our API for better Terraform provisioning

Recently, a customer reached out to us, expressing their desire to provision Transloadit with Hashicorp's Terraform. We already have the Terraform Provider Plugin available, which leverages our API to set up an account and Templates.

We're doing so by building a website that loops an audio clip for a specified duration. To help with this project, we'll also make use of the mighty file-uploading tool Uppy. Take a look ›
