Description

This puppet module installs Hashicorp Consul

Setup

What consul affects

This module simply installs consul with a sane default configuration. To configure consul, please consult the Consul documentation

Setup Requirements

The one caution I would warn, is that this modules bundles the rpms for the installation with the module. Yes, that is a definite anti-pattern. I acknowledge that. It will be fixed in later releases of this

Beginning with consul

After installation, to access the consul service, type: curl localhost:8500/v1/catalog/nodes

The consul web ui will be available at http://127.0.0.1:8500/ui

Usage

This section is where you describe how to customize, configure, and do the fancy stuff with your module here. It's especially helpful if you include usage examples and code samples for doing things with your module.

Reference

Here, include a complete list of your module's classes, types, providers, facts, along with the parameters for each. Users refer to this section (thus the name "Reference") to find specific details; most users don't read it per se.

Limitations

This is a hack, let's be real. I know the best answer would be to put the rpms into a yum repo, but I don't have one for the initial release. Also, this has only been tested on RHEL/Centos 6

Development

This module lives at https://github.com/fortunecookiezen/consul
