Welcome to the Puppet Forge
The Puppet Development Kit is Here!
The Puppet Development Kit (PDK) is the shortest path to better modules. It makes it easier than ever to develop and test Puppet modules by providing a simple, unified interface to a set of helpful tools for anyone who writes or consumes Puppet code. Learn more from the announcement blog post. Try it out now by downloading the PDK and running through the Getting Started guide.
Puppet 5 is Here!
Puppet 5 provides both enhancements and some deprecations over Puppet 4 while largely retaining backwards compatibility. Check out the announcement blog post to learn more. If you're still on Puppet 3.x, review the upgrade mini-site to plan your upgrade.
For authors, we recommend:
- Reading through the Updating Manifests for Puppet 5 documentaion
- Testing your module code under Puppet 5 and updating compatibility metadata once you're sure everything works
