Librarian-Puppet / R10K Setup

 # Modules from the Puppet Forge
 mod "ULHPC/vim"

or, if you prefer to work on the git version:

 mod "ULHPC/vim", 
     :git =>,
     :ref => production

Tests on Vagrant box

The best way to test this module in a non-intrusive way is to rely on Vagrant. The Vagrantfile at the root of the repository pilot the provisioning of the vagrant box and relies on boxes generated through my vagrant-vms repository.
Once cloned, run

  $> rake packer:Debian:init

To create a template. Select the version matching the once mentioned on the Vagrantfile (7.6.0-amd64 for instance) Then run

  $> rake packer:Debian:build

This shall generate the vagrant box that you can then add to your box lists:

  $> vagrant box add debian-7.6.0-amd64  packer/debian-7.6.0-amd64/

Now you can run vagrant up from this repository to boot the VM, provision it to be ready to test this module (see the .vagrant_init.rb script). For instance, you can test the manifests of the tests/ directory within the VM:

  $> vagrant ssh 
  (vagrant)$> sudo puppet apply -t /vagrant/tests/init.pp

Run vagrant halt (or vagrant destroy) to stop (or kill) the VM once you've finished to play with it.
