4.6 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.

Forge Build


To install the Rocket command line utilties rkt and actool use:

include rocket

By default this installs the version of Rocket recorded in the params class. You can override this with:

class { 'rocket':
  version => '0.1.0',

Once installed you can use the following two defined types to build images and run an application under Rocket.

rocket::image { 'hello.aci':
  source     => '/vagrant/hello',
  output_dir => '/vagrant',

rocket::application { 'hello':
  image => '/vagrant/hello.aci',


This module currently only supports anything running Upstart, which probably means Ubuntu.
