augeasproviders: alternative Augeas-based providers for Puppet

This module provides is a meta module which gathers all official augeasproviders modules as dependencies. Augeasproviders modules provide alternative Augeas-based providers for Puppet providers around config files, using the Augeas configuration library to read and modify them.

The advantage of using Augeas over the default Puppet parsedfile implementations is that Augeas will go to great lengths to preserve file formatting and comments, while also failing safely when needed.

Requirements

Ensure both Augeas and ruby-augeas 0.3.0+ bindings are installed and working as normal.

See Puppet/Augeas pre-requisites.

Classes

augeasproviders::instances

This class allows the types provided by this module to be defined using the classes' parameters or top-scope variables.

NOTE: The classes' parameters take presedence over the top-scope variables.

Set the sysctl entry net.ipv4.ip_forward to 1:

class { 'augeasproviders::instances':
  sysctl_hash => { 'net.ipv4.ip_forward' => { 'value' => '1' } },
}

The following example is the same as above but using a top-scope variable.

node 'foo.example.com' {
  $augeasproviders_sysctl_hash = {
    'net.ipv4.ip_forward' => { 'value' => '1' },
  }
  
  include augeasproviders::instances
}

Parameters

#####TYPE_hash

All types have a TYPE_hash parameter, where TYPE is the resource type. These parameters accept a Hash to define that type's resources.

#####resource_defaults

A Hash that contains the default values used to create each resource. See manifests/params.pp for the format used.

Variables

#####augeasproviders_TYPE_hash

All types have a augeasproviders_TYPE_hash variable, where TYPE is the resource type. These variables accept a Hash to define that type's resources.
