We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

Example Usage

Install transmission:

include transmission

Install transmission with custom parameters:

class { 'transmission':
  rpc-enabled  => true,
  rpc-password => '{5bf3cd57109da5468fe6519c4ead6f281fbacff8W366dVGr',
  rpc-port     => '9090',


The transmission-daemon overwrites a plaintext password in settings.json with a hashed version. The hash function they use is custom. For now, you must use the hash password in your parameters to prevent a constant conflict between the Puppet agent and the transmission-daemon. I will need to add a custom function to mimic the function in transmission to hash the password.
