Module description

This module helps you run Tor relays by installing, configuring, and managing Tor service instances.

Usage

The main tor class manages the installation options.

The tor::instance type manages a Tor instance configuration.

Beginning with tor

You must first include the main class with: include ::tor, then you can create an instance with:

tor::instance { 'foo':
  settings => {
    Nickname => 'foo',
    OrPort   => 9050,
    DirPort  => 9030,
  }
}

The instances parameters of the main class, will be passed to create_resources.

You may put you configuration options in hiera:

---
tor::instances:
  foo:
    settings:
      Nickname: 'foo'
      OrPort: 9050
      DirPort: 9030
