3.5 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.

bashtoni/findec2 — version 1.0.0 Feb 26th 2014


A small Puppet module to use the utility.

We use this to generate Varnish config and PHP snippets where one might otherwise use PuppetDB and stored configuration.


To generate a Varnish VCL snippet with backends of all machines which have a tag 'machinetype' and value 'web':

  findec2::generate { 'web':
    template  => '/etc/find-ec2/templates/varnish.template',
    service   => 'varnish',
    output    => '/etc/varnish/web.vcl',
    frequency => '1',
    tagname   => 'machinetype',
    tagvalue  => 'web',
    dummy     => true,
