      'extra-index-url => https://pypi.risedev.at/simple/
    }
  }
}

hiera configuration

This module supports configuration through hiera. The following example creates two python3 virtualenvs. The configuration also pip installs a package into each environment.

python::python_pyvenvs:
  "/opt/env1":
    version: "system"
  "/opt/env2":
    version: "system"
python::python_pips:
  "nose":
    virtualenv: "/opt/env1"
  "coverage":
    virtualenv: "/opt/env2"

Using SCL packages from RedHat or CentOS

To use this module with Linux distributions in the Red Hat family and python distributions from softwarecollections.org, set python::provider to 'rhscl' and python::version to the name of the collection you want to use (e.g., 'python27', 'python33', or 'rh-python34').

Release Notes

Version 1.9.8 Notes The pip, virtualenv and gunicorn parameters of Class['python'] have changed. These parameters now accept absent, present and latest rather than true and false. The boolean values are still supported and are equivalent to present and absent respectively. Support for these boolean parameters is deprecated and will be removed in a later release.

Version 1.7.10 Notes

Installation of python-pip previously defaulted to false and was not installed. This default is now true and python-pip is installed. To prevent the installation of python-pip specify pip => false as a parameter when instantiating the python puppet class.

Version 1.1.x Notes

Version 1.1.x makes several fundamental changes to the core of this module, adding some additional features, improving performance and making operations more robust in general.

Please note that several changes have been made in v1.1.x which make manifests incompatible with the previous version. However, modifying your manifests to suit is trivial. Please see the notes below.

Currently, the changes you need to make are as follows:

  • All pip definitions MUST include the owner field which specifies which user owns the virtualenv that packages will be installed in. Adding this greatly improves performance and efficiency of this module.
  • You must explicitly specify pip => true in the python class if you want pip installed. As such, the pip package is now independent of the dev package and so one can exist without the other.
