puppet-lint template file extension check

Extends puppet-lint to ensure all file names used in template and epp functions end with the string '.erb' or '.epp' respectively

Build Status

This plugin is an extension of our local style guide and may not suit your own code base. This sample would trigger the puppet-lint warning:

class valid_template_filename {
  file { '/tmp/templated':
    content => template('mymodule/single_file.config'),

# all template file names should end with .erb

And this would trigger an EPP (Embedded Puppet) specific warning:

class epp_multi_templated_file {
  file { '/tmp/templated':
    content => epp('mymodule/first_file.epp', 'mymodule/second_file.conf'),

# all epp file names should end with .epp


To use this plugin add the following line to your Gemfile

gem 'puppet-lint-template_file_extension-check'

and then run bundle install.


This plugin provides a new check to puppet-lint.

all template file names should end with .erb

all epp file names should end with .epp
