Geppetto 3.2.1

  • Bug fixes related to startup (Issues #530, #531)

Geppetto 3.2.0-R201307041307

  • Support for Puppet 3.2, including --parser future (iteration, lambdas)
  • Direct Publishing to the Forge
  • Improved Editing of Modulefile / module meta data.
  • Bug Fixes

In this release

Support for Puppet 3.2

Support for Puppet 3.2 and the new ability in Puppet to use the future experimental parser via the ‘--parser future’ option has been added. These are selected under Preferences - just like other targets were selected. Going forward, the Geppetto setting of target to "future" will make Geppetto include support for what is considered "future" in the latest version of Puppet that Geppetto supports (i.e., currently the ‘--parser future’ option in Puppet 3.2.).

The ‘--parser future’ option gives access to the new iteration and Puppet lambda support that enables Puppet logic to contain logic like this:

['fred', 'mary', 'joe'].each |$name| { notice $name }

Formatting of Puppet 3.2 future expressions

Geppetto 3.2 contains formatting (pretty printing) for the new lambda expressions. Since these are typically one liners but sometimes they extend over several lines there needs to be a convenient way to tell Geppetto how a lambda should be formatted. The simple rule is: if a lambda ends with a linebreak before the closing '}' then the lambda will be broken up on several lines, othwerwise an attempt is made to keep it on one line (and if it does not fit, then it is broken up on multiple lines.

Improvements to Modules and Module Publishing

Puppet Labs has released a new improved API for talking to the Forge server. It now includes a method for publishing a module. Geppetto leverages this in several ways:

  • The new and improved Export wizard will allow you to directly publish new releases of your module(s) to the Forge.
    The prerequisite is that you have a Forge account and that a description of the module(s) has/have been entered at the Forge website before publishing.
  • The Geppetto GitHub Publisher (documentation to be released from Puppet Labs soon) lets you create fully automated
    publishing. You push a commit to GitHub, the Travis-CI server kicks off a build which in turn uses the Geppetto Publisher to publish the result to the Forge.
  • The Publisher is provided as a Maven plug-in which means that you can also Publish from the Command Line. This gives you great freedom to configure the publisher and perform all sorts of validation.

The flexibility of the Maven plug-in makes it usable in many other cases as well. You can, for instance, perform validation only or just build without publishing. One viable scenario is to use this to automatically validate pull-requests.

Module resolution now supports Semver

Geppetto sort of already supported Semver, but in Geppetto 3.2 the full Semantic Versioning 1.0.0 Specification is implemented. The version requirements used in the Module Dependencies are based on Puppet Labs Guidelines for Dependencies with the addition of Tilde and X-based Version Ranges. Geppetto supports the full syntax described in the NPM Version Requirement Specification except disparate ranges (the ‘||’ operator) and URL dependencies. The reason for not supporting those is that they will not be supported by the Module Forge.

Geppetto Issues Fixed

For a full list and details of fixed issues see The List at Geppetto github Issue Tracker (3.2.0 milestone).

False Ambiguity Warning for Class vs. Type

Geppetto looked up classes and types in combination and thus reported references to a class where there is also a
type with the same name as ambiguous. This is now corrected, when searching for classes these can not be satisfied by a type.

Index variable in string interpolation

Geppetto reported a strange error for interpolation of an index variable, e.g. "Hello ${names[0]}" and required the use of "Hello ${$names[0]}" to not report an error. This is now corrected.

Increased Robustness in Ruby Parsing

The Ruby parser used by Geppetto has been updated. Parsing of Ruby is now also more robust.

Increased Robustness in handling of errors in Modulefiles

Any problem in reading a Modulefile could cause exceptions and the Modulefile editor could not open the file. These errors could also lead to many logged errors from builds performed in the background. Handling of Modulefile errors is now more robust.

Formatting Improvements

Formatting of arrays and hashes with one of the break and align options turned on could result in undesirable formatting. See issues #500 and #503 for details.

Geppetto 2.2.1 - R201207181637

Note that parts of 2.2.1 were pre-released as hot-fixes on the update site.

In this release

  • Recognition of hiera functions is now included in all puppet targets.
  • Project specific preference flag is now stored in the project. If you have used project specific settings you may need to re-enable them after the update. The good news is that project specific settings can be checked in and takes effect automatically when importing the project into a new workspace/instance of Geppetto. Project specific preferences now also behaves as expected (platform bugs had surprising results regarding what was actually saved).
  • Malfunction in Auto Save Actions could destroy content (this was released as a hot-fix).
  • The fictional 2.8 target is now replaced with a 3.0.0 target based on the puppet 3.0.0 release candidate 3. If you had 2.8 selected as a target, you will automatically get the new 3.0 target.

Issues fixed

  • Fixes auto correct can destroy content. Issue #321.
  • Fixes AIOOB Exception when name is empty. Issue #322.

  • Fixes wording of Borat:ish error message.
  • Fixes a name such as ::$firewall causes IOOB error. Issue #333.
  • Adds hiera functions to all targets. Updates 2.8 references to 3.0. Issue #282.
  • Adds path segment validation in path preferences. Closes #324. When entering a ':' in the path segment, surprises followed.
  • Fixes issue with project specific preferences. Closes #320.

Geppetto 2.1.2 - R201202021616

In this release

  • Code completion of variables and quick fixes based on closest matching names. Works in string interpolation too.
  • Helps correct problems with the confusing addition and removal of hyphen as a legal character in variable names. These are now validated and quickfixes are available.
  • Save actions preferences that will automatically remove trailing whitespace from lines, replace all "funky" spaces (non breaking space, and all other variants of space) with regular space, and ensuring that file ends with a newline. These save actions are configurable for the workspace and projects can have individual (persisted) settings.
  • Preferences available for Potential Problems, and Stylistic Problems where it is possible to control if these checks should be made and if they are ignored, flagged as errors or warnings.
  • Checks added for selector expressions and case statements (default, duplicated and unreachable entries, etc.)
  • Improved validation:
    • Illegal assignments to numerical variables
    • "false" != false, "true" != true
    • Numerical operations on known non-numerical operands (e.g. 1 + 'hello')
    • Missing comma between entries improved (better message, and quickfix added)
  • Turns on puppet nature automatically when opening editor on a .pp file
  • SVN and Git support are now separately updateable (and uninstallable). This enables users to switch to Subclipse (from the bundled Subversion) to get support for SVN 1.7.
  • Files external to Geppetto workspace can now be opened and edited. Geppetto links them to an automatically created special project (and unlinks them on close). This makes the files open in a reasonable context, and it is possible to navigate to them from error markers etc. This is not a substitute for having proper projects, but is very useful when just wanting to look at/edit/copy text from a file available in the filesystem. (Note that files in this special project resolve references against all other files in the same project).

Issues fixed

  • Removes extra formatting spaces in unquoted interpolations. Issue #143
  • Turns on puppet nature automatically when opening editor. Issue #85
  • Fixes references to variables defined with += operator. Issue #241

  • Fixes confusion over '-' in variable names - improves validation. Issues #216, #237.
  • Fixes issue regarding not being able to install into Eclipse with older EMF. Issue #230.
  • Adds quickfix for interpolated hyphen (replaces '-' with '_' or removes '-'). Issue #246, #251
  • Adds nested modules to module selection dialog. Issue #252.
  • Adds PE 2.0 preference to targets. Issue #247.
  • Adds validation of numerical expressions operations on known non-numeric operands. Issue #253.
  • Adds validation for warn "false" != false (and true). Issue #255.
  • Improves validates optional endComma in definition lists. Issue #250.
  • Fixes 'not yet initialized' false negative error. Issue #256.

  • Increased support for "magic" variables ($module_name, $0-$n).
  • Bug fixes

Issues Fixed

  • Promotes puppet 'new' wizards to the top of the new menu. Issue #193.
  • Adds validation of magic regular expression result vars $0-$n. Issue #226.

  • Improves interpolation. Issue #234, Issue #233.

Geppetto 2.1 - R201110251649

In this release

  • 20Mb smaller footprint! and more functionality.

  • Geppetto helps with the transition from dynamically scoped variables (supported by puppet <= 2.7), to the "local, inherited, and global"-only scopes supported by 2.8. Geppetto does this by validating variable references for target >= puppet 2.7.

    • Geppetto supports best practice, i.e., to make all references to global variables use the '::' namespace (i.e., use $::operatingsystem, in favor of $operatingsystem).

    • Geppetto helps by flagging "unknown" variables, as well as "unknown and unqualified". When targeting 2.7 these are flagged as errors, and when targeting the future 2.8, they are flagged as errors.

    • Unfortunately, it is not possible for Geppetto to validate the existence of all global variables as a majority are not known until runtime.

    • For target 2.6, Geppetto behaves as before (no warnings or errors as it is impossible to statically verify the existence of dynamically scoped variables).

    • For target >= 2.7, Geppetto requires that all non global qualified references are to known variables and will issue warnings (2.7), or errors (2.8). As a consequence Geppetto 2.1 knows about variables in the $settings:: namespace.

  • Fixes issues, and regressions in 2.0.1 validation.

  • Support for Java (Eclipse JDT) removed from packaged product.

  • Based on Eclipse Indigo SR1 which means a large number of fixed issues in base functionality, and git support.

Issues Fixed

  • Adds Puppet 2.8 to preference page (uses 2.7 as platform until 2.8 is released). A setting of 2.8 will flag errors instead of warnings for unknown variable references.
  • Adds check and quickfix for unqualified variables.
  • Validation and cross reference rules can now be specific to puppet versions.
  • Adds validation of unknown non global qualified variables.
  • Validates variable references for puppet >2.7 as dynamic scoping of variables will be deprecated in 2.8. Issue #202
  • Small speed improvements.
  • Removes duplicate error messages for some errors in class. Issue #205.
  • Makes "qualified resource must be quoted" apply to < 2.6. Issue #183.
  • Validates cross reference of string interpolated variables. Issue #207.
  • Fixes "comment preceded by code on same line is not a doc comment".
  • Removes jdt from geppetto product feature.
  • Provides aggregation of error/warning markers when JDT is not present.
  • Works with and without JDT installed (if JDT is also installed, the JDT functionality for error aggregation is used).
  • Makes validation of period "." in case statement depend on puppet version. Issue #213.
  • Makes Module dependency without a version requirement work as ">= 0". Issue #215.
  • In earlier releases a period "." was allowed in variable names. This had minor effect prior to variable validation, and was only noticeable as differently colored interpolated text. Geppetto 2.1 makes variables comply with puppet 2.7 dollarvar rule. Issue #211.
  • Adds replacement for the JDT Error Aggregation Decorator. Issue #214.
  • Fixes regression in class param defaults (false positive). Issue #218.
  • Promotes puppet 'new' wizards to the top of the new menu. Issue #193.

Geppetto 2.0.1 - R201110160838

In this release

  • Improved validation and error messages.

Issues fixed

In this release

  • Fixed issue causing "out of permgen space"
  • Fixed late discovered grammar regressions

Geppetto 2.0.0 - R201109182337

In this release

  • Code completion of resource expressions and attributes.
  • Selection of puppet target (2.6 or 2.7)
  • Tasks generation from comments. Comments with "todo" and "fixme" (case insensitive) in comments are interpreted as "tasks" and show up in the Task View. A "!" in the message makes them "important". When comments ends with tag, the code up to the tag is used as task text. e.g. '$mispeledElswhere = false # fixme'
  • Supports search path and environment (removes many ambiguity warnings). This feature provides detailed control over what is visible and prioritizes among otherwise ambiguous matches.
  • Wizards improved (added wizards, better names, error handling).
  • Improvements to validation (more cases and code-smells caught)
  • Suggestions and quickfix using "soundex" for "unknown names" errors
  • Preference pages added, and preferences per project supported
  • Auto edit / auto insert of '' "" () {} [] /* */) can be turned on/off individually via preferences.
  • Check for updates of Geppetto turned on by default in packaged Geppetto.
  • Packaged Geppetto uses Eclipse Indigo as base (IDE version supports >= Helios SR2). This means numerous bugfixes and enhancement to the general platform.
  • Nice icons for files, Modulefile, Manifests and puppet projects.
  • Supports alternate location of forge (mainly for testing).

Geppetto 0.1.1

In this release

  • Enhancing export module action to support multiple selection.
  • Fixed issues

Issues Fixed

  • [3] parser is mistaking '::if' as clasname for an if() {} construct. This fix is now generalized to allow keywords when combined with ::
  • [4] Parser does not understand realize on multiple lines This was caused by missing endcomma rule.
  • [11] Geppetto does not yet know about parameterized classes The construct was mistaken as a resource-default which does not allow a title.
