Build Status Gem Version

Tired of searching for dependencies on the forge and hoping you got everything? Have an existing Puppetfile that's getting long in the tooth? Use generate-puppetfile to generate a list of modules and their dependencies, at the latest version, in Puppetfile format for use with r10k or librarian-puppet.

Installation

gem install generate-puppetfile

Usage

Run generate-puppetfile with a list of modules and/or an existing Puppetfile. Each module name will be validated to be of the proper format (author/name). Any existing Puppetfile will be scanned for forge modules. Non-forge module entries will be preserved. All forge modules will be tracked at the latest version, along with their dependencies. The resulting Puppetfile will contain all the forge modules along with any preserved non-forge module statements.

Forge Modules Only

$ generate-puppetfile echocat/nfs rnelson0/certs

Installing modules. This may take a few minutes.

Limitations

  • There is no defined standard for a Puppetfile's contents. generate-puppetfile knows about some of the most common types of module references and attempts to treat them as references instead of strings. Any unknown references will be appended as raw content following the known references.
  • Verify that no ordering errors are introduced before using the new file.
