genpuppet is a script to automatically generate a puppet manifest based on a series of user inputs. Think of it as a kernel "make config" for puppet. Let's face it... when writing puppet manifests, one has to enter the same contructs over and over again-- space space space space file brace quote name endquote colon enter... space space space space space space space space ensure => whatever comma enter... space space space space etc. But you say you already have your manifest visualized? Well all you really need to do is give the parameters for whatever resource type you're using. With genpuppet, the most frequently used resources are prompted for so one can quickly generate a working manifest without having to concentrate on syntax and spacing. GENPUPPET Features: * Creates resource "stanzas" for package, service, file, exec and others * Prompts for the most common parameters of those resources * Manages commas and bracket/brace placement for you * Generates puppet code that is immediately useable * Extendable and supports all resource types Caveats: * Single quotes are used exclusively. If you need to quote a variable, edit the generated manifest and replace the single quotes around your variable with double quotes.
