1.5 quality score

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.

Please note, the information below
is for guidance only and neither of
these methods should be considered
an endorsement by Puppet.

anselm/bash — version 0.0.1 Jan 2nd 2011



Deploys a set of bash initialization and profile files to etc/. In each profile one can query if the shell is a login shell, if it is interactive and if the profile has already been sourced by a parent shell. Profile files can be created either globally or per user, settings per user take precedence over global ones.


  • Tested with Puppet 2.6 and Bash 3/4
  • Targeted for FreeBSD, for other systems path names and example profiles can easily be modified. Default is to deploy everything to /usr/local/etc/bash.


Copy the files from /usr/local/etc/bash/skel to your user home (preserving symbolic links) and start a new shell. Then, place profile files either in /usr/local/etc/bash/profiles or ~/.bash_profiles.


There is a nice blog article ;-)
