4.7 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.

This module downloads a pre-built binary from the Gitea project releases page. No external package repositories are required. You can choose to install Gitea with default settings, or customize them using the custom_configuration class parameter.


The simplest use case is to rely on defaults, which will install the latest tested version in /opt/gitea.

include gitea

To install a version that has not been tested with this module, you must provide the release sha256 checksum:

class { 'gitea':
  version  => '1.17.0',
  checksum => 'bc4a8e1f5d5f64d4be2e50c387de08d07c062aecdba2f742c2f61c20accfcc46',

To customize the Gitea configuration, use the custom_configuration parameter (merged with defaults in common.yaml).

Refer to Gitea's Config Cheat Sheet for most settings and defaults. Each section in the cheat sheet is labeled by a human name and the config section in parentheses. The config section is a top level key of the custom_configuration hash, except DEFAULT which is an empty string.

class { 'gitea':
  custom_configuration => {
    ''        => {
      'APP_NAME' => 'Internal Code Projects',
    'server'  => {
      'ROOT_URL' => '',
    'ui'      => {
      'SHOW_USER_EMAIL'       => 'false',
      'MAX_DISPLAY_FILE_SIZE' => '4194304',
    'ui.meta' => {
      'DESCRIPTION' => 'My self-hosted code project service',
      'KEYWORDS'    => 'git,self-hosted',
    'indexer' => {
      'REPO_INDEXER_ENABLED' => true,
    'cache'   => {
      'ADAPTER' => 'redis',
      'HOST'    => 'network=tcp,addr=,db=0,pool_size=100,idle_timeout=180',
    'session' => {
      'PROVIDER'        => 'redis',
      'PROVIDER_CONFIG' => 'network=tcp,addr=,db=0,pool_size=100,idle_timeout=180',

Custom files allow you to add themes, override built-in templates, or serve additional files.

Use the gitea::custom::file resource to manage files in Gitea's custom directory. Subdirectories are automatically created for you.

gitea::custom::file { 'public/assets/css/custom.css':
  content => file('profile/gitea/custom.css'),
gitea::custom::file { 'public/assets/img/logo.svg':
  source => 'puppet:///modules/profile/gitea/logo.svg',
