~/.puppet/puppet.conf) to the forge:
[main] module_repository = http://localhost:8000

The Puppet Forge (https://forge.puppetlabs.com/) is a central authority for finding and installing Puppet modules. This package implements the first version (v1) of the JSON web services necessary to house (or mirror) a private, stand-alone version of the Forge.
The Puppet Forge "standard" is undocumented, and the resources here were reverse-engineered from the behavior of the current API endpoints (which are buried in the Puppet module tool source code). Care is taken to try and imitate the behavior of the Forge whenever possible.
Simplicity and ease-of-use are the goals of this package.
