Build Status

NOTE: puppet-magnum 4.x is NOT backwards compatible with puppet-magnum 3.x managed repos.
Re-initializing a puppet-magnum 3.x repo with 4.x will update and remove certain files in order to work with 4.x.

puppet-magnum is a tool for rapid, consistent, and best practice Puppet (4+) module development.

puppet-magnum helps the Puppet module developer create or maintain a Puppet module and test the module with tools like the following:



Install puppet-magnum

  • % gem install puppet-magnum


% puppet-magnum --help
  puppet-magnum help [COMMAND]  # Describe available commands or one specific command
  puppet-magnum module          # Module related tasks. Type 'puppet-magnum module' for more help.
  puppet-magnum version         # Display version and copyright information

% puppet-magnum module create nginx
      create  nginx/manifests
      create  nginx/data
      create  nginx/templates
      create  nginx/files
      create  nginx/spec
      create  nginx/spec/acceptance
      create  nginx/spec/acceptance/nodesets
      create  nginx/.puppet-magnum.init
      create  nginx/metadata.json
      create  nginx/manifests/init.pp
      create  nginx/hiera.yaml
      create  nginx/data/common.yaml
      create  nginx/.rspec
      create  nginx/spec/acceptance/nginx_spec.rb
      create  nginx/spec/spec_helper_acceptance.rb
      create  nginx/spec/acceptance/nodesets/ubuntu-server-1404-x64.yml
      create  nginx/spec/acceptance/nodesets/ubuntu-server-1604-x64.yml
      remove  nginx/.gitignore
      create  nginx/.gitignore
