augeasproviders_core: library for building alternative Augeas-based providers for Puppet
This module provides a library for module authors to create new types and providers around config files, using the Augeas configuration library to read and modify them.
The advantage of using Augeas over the default Puppet
implementations is that Augeas will go to great lengths to preserve file
formatting and comments, while also failing safely when needed.
If you're a user, you want to see the main augeasproviders project at augeasproviders.com.
Ensure both Augeas and ruby-augeas 0.3.0+ bindings are installed and working as normal.
See Puppet/Augeas pre-requisites.
See docs/ (run
make) or augeasproviders.com.
Please file any issues or suggestions on GitHub.
This plugin was originally authored by hercules-team. The maintainer preferred that Puppet Community take ownership of the module for future improvement and maintenance. Existing pull requests and issues were transferred over, please fork and continue to contribute here instead of Camptocamp.
