Puppet module for installing Puppet agent, and Puppet server

Installs Puppet agent:

  • Optional class to run Puppet from Cron - puppet::cron
  • Optional Class to run Puppet as a daemon - puppet::daemon

Optional support for install Puppet server (puppet::server)

  • Configurable support for static or git-backed dynamic environments (requires puppet-git module)
  • Storeconfig option
  • Passenger support (requires puppet-apache and puppet-passenger modules)


Using GIT

git clone git://

Downloadable Tarball


Only really tested on RedHat and Debian. Patches welcome for other OSes :)


This is a parameterized class, but the defaults should get you going:

Standalone agent:

echo include puppet | puppet --modulepath /path_to/extracted_tarball

Agent and cron (or daemon):

echo include puppet, puppet::cron | puppet --modulepath /path_to/extracted_tarball

Agent and server:

echo include puppet, puppet::server | puppet --modulepath /path_to/extracted_tarball


As a parameterized class, all the configurable options can be overridden from your wrapper classes or even your ENC (if it supports param classes). For example:

# You want to use git?
class { '::puppet::server': git_repo => true }

# You need need your own template for puppet.conf?
class { '::puppet::server': 
  agent_template  => 'puppetagent/puppet.conf.core.erb',
  master_template => 'puppetserver/puppet.conf.master.erb',
class { '::puppet':
  agent_template  => 'puppetagent/puppet.conf.core.erb',

# Maybe you're using gitolite, new hooks, and a different port?
class { '::puppet::server': 
  port              => 8141,
  git_repo          => true,
  git_repo_path     => '/var/lib/gitolite/repositories/puppet.git',
  post_hook_name    => 'post-receive.puppet',
  post_hook_content => 'puppetserver/post-hook.puppet',

Look in init.pp for what can be configured this way, see Contributing if anything doesn't work.

To use this in standalone mode, edit a file (e.g. install.pp), put in a class resource, as per the examples above, and the execute puppet apply:

cat > install.pp <<EOF
class { '::puppet': }
class { '::puppet::server': git_repo => true } 
puppet apply install.pp --modulepath /path_to/extracted_tarball
