Provider Purpose

The dominos provider exists to ensure that while your cloud infrastructure is spinning up, you can have a hot pizza delivered to you. This paradigm-shifting expansion of Terraform’s “resource” model into the physical world was inspired in part by the realization that Google has a REST API for Interconnects, e.g. for people with hard-hats laying digging up the ground, laying fiber. If you can use Terraform to summon folks with shovels to drop a fiber line, why shouldn’t you be able to summon a driver with a pizza?

Using the Provider

Installing the provider

Download terraform-provider-dominos and place it in ~/.terraform.d/plugins/terraform-provider-dominos. Follow instructions at Installing 3rd Party Plugins

mkdir ~/.terraform.d/plugins && \
wget https://github.com/ndmckinley/terraform-provider-dominos/raw/master/bin/terraform-provider-dominos -O ~/.terraform.d/plugins/terraform-provider-dominos && \
chmod +x ~/.terraform.d/plugins/terraform-provider-dominos

Sample Configuration

provider "dominos" {
  first_name = "My"
  last_name = "Name"
  email_address = "my@name.com"
  phone_number = "15555555555"

  credit_card {
    number = 123456789101112
    cvv = 1314
    date = "15/16"
    zip = 18192
  }
}

data "dominos_address" "addr" {
  street = "123 Main St"
  city = "Anytown"
  state = "WA"
  zip = "02122"
}

data "dominos_store" "store" {
  address_url_object = "${data.dominos_address.addr.url_object}"
}

data "dominos_menu_item" "item" {
  store_id = "${data.dominos_store.store.store_id}"
  query_string = ["philly", "medium"]
}

resource "dominos_order" "order" {
  address_api_object = "${data.dominos_address.addr.api_object}"
  item_codes = ["${data.dominos_menu_item.item.matches.0.code}"]
  store_id = "${data.dominos_store.store.store_id}"
}

Now I don’t know what you’re going to get since I don’t know what a medium philly is in your area, but in my area it gets you a 12” hand-tossed philly cheesesteak pizza, and it’s pretty good. It’s all right. Regular dominos.

Provider Overview

The Dominos Pizza provider is made up primarily of data sources. The only thing you can truly Create with this provider is, of course, an order from Dominos.

If you are a true Dominos afficionado, you may already know the four-digit store ID of the store closest to you, the correct json-format for your address, the six-to-ten-digit code for the item you want to order. If you are one of those people, you can feel free to construct a dominos_order resource from scratch.

For the rest of us, I recommend one of each of the data sources. They feed into each other in an obvious way.

Provider Configuration

If you plan to place an order, you need to set the following fields in the provider "dominos" {} block:

The credit card fields are optional - if you do not configure a credit card, you will be paying by cash when the delivery driver arrives.

The credit_card block requires the following fields:

If you don’t plan to place an order, you don’t need to fill this out.

Data Sources

dominos_address

This data source takes in your address and writes it back out in the two different JSON formats that the API expects. Configure it with street, city, state, and zip, and use url_object and api_object in other data sources where required.

dominos_store

This data source takes in the url_object of your address, and returns the store_id, and, in case it’s useful to you somehow, the delivery_minutes, an integer showing the estimated minutes until your pizza will be delivered.

dominos_menu_item

This data source takes in the store_id and a list of strings (as query_string), and outputs the menu items in matches. Each item in matches has three attributes: name, code, and price_cents. The name is human-readable, but not useful for ordering. The price_cents is also only informational. code is the value that will be useful in a dominos_order.

Each string in query_string must literally match the name of the menu item for the menu item to appear in matches.

dominos_menu

If you would prefer to do your own filtering, you can get access to every item on the dominos menu in your area using this data source. This data source takes in store_id and provides menu, a list of all (186, at my dominos) name/code/price_cents blocks.

For the love of all that’s holy, do not accidentally feed this data source directly into the dominos_order. This will be expensive and probably pretty annoying to the Dominos store, which will be serving you 1 of each 2-liter bottle of soda, 1 of each 20oz bottle, at least 4 different kinds of salad, probably like 6 different kinds of chicken wings, and I think 12 of each kind of pizza? (Small, medium, large) x (Hand Tossed, Pan, Stuffed Crust, Gluten Free)? Oh plus breads. There’s breads on the menu, I found that out while trawling through API responses. I wonder who eats those. Are they good? Let me know!

Resources

dominos_order

This is it! This will order you your pizzas! Configure it with:

As far as I know there is no way to cancel a dominos order programmatically, so if you made a mistake, you’ll have to call the store. You should receive an email confirmation almost instantly, and that email will have the store’s phone number in it.

Warnings and Caveats

1) The author(s) of this software are not in any sense associated with Dominos Pizza. It was an idea a bunch of us had while working on the Google provider, but this software isn’t associated with Google, either. For further details you can read LICENSE.md.

2) If your cloud infrastructure is slow to spin up, your pizza might arrive before your changes finish applying. This will be embarrassing, and potentially distracting.

3) This is not a joke provider. Or, it kind of is a joke, but even though it’s a joke it will still order you a pizza. You are going to get a pizza. You should be careful with this provider, if you don’t want a pizza.

4) Even if you do want a pizza, you should probably be careful with this provider. In testing, I once nearly ordered every item on the Domino’s menu, which would probably have been expensive and embarrassing.

5) You do have to put your actual credit card information into this provider, because you will, again, be purchasing and receiving a pizza.

6) Although all your credit card information is marked Sensitive in schema, that’s the only protection they’ve got. If your state storage isn’t secure, maybe don’t use this provider. Or use a virtual card number, or COD, or something. Be smart. Again, real credit card, real money, real pizza.

7) I cannot emphasize enough how much you are actually going to be ordering a pizza. Please do not be surprised when you receive a pizza and a corresponding charge to your credit card.

8) As far as I know, there is no programmatic way to destroy an existing pizza. terraform destroy is implemented on the client side, by consuming the pizza.

9) The dominos API supports an astonishing amount of customization of your items. I think this is where “none pizza with left beef” comes from. You can’t do any of that with this provider. Order off the menu!

10) Dominos probably exists outside the US, but I have no idea what will happen if you try to order a pizza outside the US. Some quick testing suggests it just times out.

11) This provider auto-accepts Dominos’ canonicalization of your address. If you live someplace the post office doesn’t know about, you might have trouble.
