Writing and Deploying Puppet 2019 Modules

by Agaba Philip

Nothing beats the experience of writing your own Puppet modules from scratch. In this course, you will learn how to setup Puppet Enterprise, use the Puppet console, write simple RSpec tests, and deploy your modules to the Forge.

What you'll learn

It's possible to go your entire career without having to write a single Module, but it's not likely. Even if you don't publish modules to the Forge, the odds are high you'll have to render site-specific customizations to the modules you download. In this course, Writing and Deploying Puppet 2019 Modules, you'll write a simple module, and publish it to the Puppet Forge. First, you'll get to see some of the differences between Open Source Puppet and Puppet Enterprise, after which you'll set up a Puppet Enterprise Master of Masters on Enterprise Linux eight, as well as three PE Agents. Next, you'll experience role-based access control from the PE console, and master the PE environment. Finally, you'll write your own version of the Apache module from scratch, and write simple Unit-tests in RSpec-puppet.
