Description

The augeas_core module is used to manage configuration files using Augeas. This module is suitable for any host for which there are Augeas libraries and ruby bindings.

Setup

Setup Requirements

The augeas libraries and ruby bindings must be installed in order to use this module. If you are using puppet-agent packages, then those prerequisites are already satisfied for most platforms.

Beginning with augeas_core

To manage a configuration file using augeas, use the following code:

augeas { 'add_services_entry':
  context => '/files/etc/services',
  incl    => '/etc/services',
  lens    => 'Services.lns',
  changes => [
    'ins service-name after service-name[last()]',
    'set service-name[last()] "Doom"',
    'set service-name[. = "Doom"]/port "666"',
    'set service-name[. = "Doom"]/protocol "udp"'
  ]
}

Usage

Please see REFERENCE.md for the reference documentation and examples for details on usage.

Reference

Please see REFERENCE.md for the reference documentation.

This module is documented using Puppet Strings.

For a quick primer on how Strings works, please see this blog post or the README.md for Puppet Strings.

To generate documentation locally, run the following command:

bundle install
bundle exec puppet strings generate ./lib/**/*.rb

This command will create a browsable _index.html file in the doc directory. The references available here are all generated from YARD-style comments embedded in the code base. When any development happens on this module, the impacted documentation should also be updated.

Limitations

This module is only available on platforms that have augeas libraries and ruby bindings installed.

Development

Puppet Labs modules on the Puppet Forge are open projects, and community contributions are essential for keeping them great. We can't access the huge number of platforms and myriad of hardware, software, and deployment configurations that Puppet is intended to serve.

We want to keep it as easy as possible to contribute changes so that our modules work in your environment. There are a few guidelines that we need contributors to follow so that we can have a chance of keeping on top of things.

For more information, see our module contribution guide.
