given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

The module should allow overriding of all of cube's settings. The following is an exampe also showing the default values, based on those in the npm package.

class { 'cube':
  cube_source         => 'cube' # default npm module; can be overridden with tarball url
  collector_http_port => 1080,
  collector_udp_port  => 1180,
  evaluator_port      => 1081,
  mongo_host          => '',
  mongo_port          => 27017,
  mongo_database      => 'cube_development',
  mongo_username      => false,
  mongo_password      => false

class { 'mongodb':
  enable_10gen => true,
