Description

Download files using puppet-archive, then either run directly or unpack and run a command.

Usage

Download, Extract, Run

include download_and_do
download_and_do::extract_and_run { "test.tar.gz":
  source       => "http://blah/cut/spec/fixtures/test.tar.gz",
  run_relative => "cp test.txt /extract_and_run",
}

Download from source to title, then perform the command at run_relative. Pass the creates parameter to specify the presence of a file that means that the resource is already converged.

Local filename is a unique relative path within download and do download directory /var/cache/download_and_do.

Download, Run

include download_and_do
download_and_do::run { "test.sh":
  source => "http://blah/cut/spec/fixtures/test.sh"
}

Download from source to title, then make the local file executable and run it. Pass the creates parameter to specify the presence of a file that means that the resource is already converged.

Local filename is a unique relative path within download and do download directory /var/cache/download_and_do.

Limitations

  • Requires the puppet archive module
  • You may encounter errors with download_and_do::extract_and_run on windows due to shell quoting
