Common Application Framework

This is the Perl Common Application Framework (CAF) for Quattor.

It is a library encapsulating most annoying details like reporting, file handling or command executions.

It gives a unified way of doing potentially dangerous things in the right way.


Quattor developers must use modules here for:

  • Executing commands (see CAF::Process).
  • Manipulating files (see CAF::FileWriter and CAF::FileEditor).
  • Reporting. Most likely, your code receives a $self object that provided CAF's interfaces.

Future notes

This repo contains an outdated version of AppConfig. There are RPMs already available for these modules, so we'll stop packaging it ourselves and rely in what RedHat-derivatives provide.
