A Puppet package provider for FreeBSD's PkgNG package manager.

branch: master


Build Status

A package provider for FreeBSD's PkgNG package manager.

This module contains the provider as well as some implementation around configuring the pkg.conf file. If you are building your own PkgNG packages, you may also want to look at my poudriere module.


The easiest way to install is to install from the forge.

puppet module install zleslie/pkgng

Then to configure your system to use a PkgNG, a simple include will do.

include pkgng

or when you want to use specific PkgNG repositories:

pkgng::repo { '': }
pkgng::repo { 'my.own.repo': }

Installation via r10K

You can also clone this repo to somewhere in your modulepath, or use something like r10k to deploy your modules. R10k is sweet. For those not familiar, check out Finch's blog post about it.

Installation via Librarian-Puppet

Installation via Librarian-Puppet is straight forward, simply add the following to your Puppetfile

mod 'zleslie/pkgng'


Once you have the module installed, you can use it by simply adding a site default in site.pp that looks like this.

Package {
  provider => pkgng

Now every package that you install will use the PkgNG provider.
