Overview

Library for concatenating multiple files into 1.

Usage

Creating a file fragment

Creates a file fragment to be collected by file_concat based on the tag.

Example with exported resource:

@@file_fragment { "uniqe_name_${::fqdn}":
  tag     => 'unique_tag',            # Mandatory.
  order   => 10,                      # Optional. Defaults to 10.
  content => 'some content'           # OR
  content => template('template.erb') # OR
  source  => 'puppet:///path/to/file'
}

Concatenating file fragments into one file

Gets all the file fragments and puts these into the target file. This will mostly be used with exported resources.

example:

File_fragment <<| tag == 'unique_tag' |>>

file_concat { '/tmp/file':
  tag     => 'unique_tag', # Mandatory
  path    => '/tmp/file',  # Optional. If given it overrides the resource name.
  owner   => 'root',       # Optional. Defaults to undef.
  group   => 'root',       # Optional. Defaults to undef.
  mode    => '0644'        # Optional. Defaults to undef.
  order   => 'numeric'     # Optional. Set to 'numeric' or 'alpha'. Defaults to numeric.
  replace => true          # Optional. Boolean Value. Defaults to true.
  backup  => false         # Optional. true, false, 'puppet', or a string. Defaults to 'puppet' for Filebucketing.
}
