##Warning This module is provided as an emergency customer hotfix. Do not use unless instructed to do so

##Overview

This module provides management of Ruby gems for both PE and FOSS Puppet Server. It supercedes the deprecated pe_puppetserver_gem. This uses gem as a parent and uses puppetserver gem command for all gem operations.

##Setup

To install a gem from RubyGems into Puppet Server:

package { 'json':
  ensure   => present,
  provider => puppetserver_gem,
}

##Usage

###To add the 'json' gem from the default gem sources: By default there is one gem source which is https://rubygems.org

package { 'json':
  ensure   => present,
  provider => puppetserver_gem,
}

###To uninstall the 'json' gem:

package { 'json':
  ensure   => absent,
  provider => puppetserver_gem,
}

This is equivalent to the command line: puppetserver gem install --no-rdoc --no-ri json

###To add a specifc version of a gem from a specific gem repository without first checking the default gem sources:

package { 'mygem':
  ensure          => '1.2',
  install_options => ['--clear-sources', '--no-document'],
  provider        => puppetserver_gem,
  source          => "https://some-gem-repo.org",
}

This is equivalent to the command line: puppetserver gem install -v 1.2 --clear-sources --no-document --source https://some-gem-repo.org mygem

##Reference

###Proxy support Proxy servers are supported via through the .gemrc file which is normally present at /root/.gemrc:

http_proxy: http://proxy.megacorp.com:8888
https_proxy: http://proxy.megacorp.com:8888

##Limitations

This module has been tested on PE and FOSS, and no issues have been identified. It is a wrapper around the puppetserver gem command line, and so has the same limitations around Gems with native (C) extensions

##Development

Puppet Labs modules on the Puppet Forge are open projects, and community contributions are essential for keeping them great. We can’t access the huge number of platforms and myriad of hardware, software, and deployment configurations that Puppet is intended to serve.

We want to keep it as easy as possible to contribute changes so that our modules work in your environment. There are a few guidelines that we need contributors to follow so that we can have a chance of keeping on top of things.

For more information, see our module contribution guide.

Testing

At the minute, there is only an acceptance test for FOSS Puppet Server.
