Create simple facts within receipts.

Module Description

This module provides a new type called fact. With this type simple key = value facts can be created on the fly without any knowledge about custom facts.


Installing the module is sufficient. There is no need to include the module.


To create a custom fact use the fact type as follows:

fact { "factname": value => "factvalue" }


This module only depends on stdlib.


Whether the fact is to be present or not. Possible values are:

  • present will create the fact file.
  • absent will make sure the fact file doesn't exist.

Defaults to present.


The name of the fact. This has to be a character, number or underscore. Defaults to the title.


The value of the fact. No default set.


Should be working with all linux, bds and mac distributions that come with an /etc directory.
