Overview

Manages perlbrew based Perl5 installations

Description

This is a puppet module for basic management of perlbrew based Perl5 installations. It has the ability to manage multiple parallel installations on the same host.

Several of the types in this module have parse order dependent behavior. Please observe any warning(s) listed in a type's description below

Usage

Examples

Single Perl Environment

perlbrew { '/home/moe':
  owner  => 'moe',
  group  => 'stoges',
  bashrc => true,
}

perlbrew::perl { 'perl-5.20.1':
  target => '/home/moe',
}

perlbrew::cpanm { 'Module::Build':
  target => 'perl-5.20.1',
}

Multiple Perl Environments

perlbrew { '/home/moe':
  owner => 'moe',
}
perlbrew { '/home/larry':
  owner => 'larry',
}
perlbrew { '/home/curly':
  owner => 'curly',
}

perlbrew::perl { 'moe-5.20.1':
  target  => '/home/moe',
  version => 'perl-5.20.1',
}
perlbrew::perl { 'larry-5.20.1':
  target  => '/home/larry',
  version => 'perl-5.20.1',
}
perlbrew::perl { 'curly-5.20.1':
  target  => '/home/curly',
  version => 'perl-5.20.1',
}

perlbrew::cpanm { 'moe-Module::Build':
  target => 'moe-5.20.1',
  module => 'Module::Build',
}
perlbrew::cpanm { 'larry-Module::Build':
  target => 'larry-5.20.1',
  module => 'Module::Build',
}
perlbrew::cpanm { 'curly-Module::Build':
  target => 'curly-5.20.1',
  module => 'Module::Build',
}

Install Module from Git

perlbrew::cpanm { 'git@github.com:jhoblitt/DateTime-Format-ISO8601.git':
  target => '5.20.1',
  module => 'DateTime::Format::ISO8601',
}

Building an Application

Example of building a perl application in place.

$lockfile = "${app_root}/lock"

vcsrepo { $app_root:
  ensure   => present,
  provider => 'git',
  source   => '',
  user     => $app_user,
  owner    => $app_user,
  group    => $app_group,
} ->
perlbrew::exec { 'perl Build.PL':
  target  => 'perl-5.20.1',
  cwd     => $app_root
  creates => $lockfile,
  require => Perlbrew::Cpanm['Module::Build'],
} ->
perlbrew::exec { 'Build':
  target  => 'perl-5.20.1',
  cwd     => $app_root,
  path    => $app_root,
  creates => $lockfile,
} ->
perlbrew::exec { 'cpanm --installdeps --notest .':
  target  => 'perl-5.20.1',
  path    => ['/bin', '/usr/bin'],
  cwd     => $app_root,
  creates => $lockfile,
  timeout => 900,
} ->
file { $lockfile:
  ensure => 'file',
  owner  => $app_user,
  group  => $app_group,
}

Defines

perlbrew

# defaults
perlbrew { '/home/foo':
  install_root => '/home/foo', # defaults to resource title
  owner        => undef,
  group        => undef,
  bashrc       => false,
}

install_root

Absolute path. Defaults to $name

The root path of the perlbrew installation. Optional if the resource title is a unique absolute path.

owner

String Defaults to undef

The user account that own's the perlbrew installation.

group

String Defaults to undef

The group that own's the perlbrew installation.

bashrc

Boolean Defaults to false

If set to true, a line to source the perlbrew bash init script is added to the .bashrc file located under the install root. Eg.

source <source>/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc

perlbrew::perl

Warning: This defined type has parse order dependent behavior. The Perlbrew[$target] resource must be parsed before this type's declaration.

perlbrew::perl { 'perl-5.20.1':
  target  => '/home/moe', # required
  version => 'perl-5.20.1',
  flags   => "--notest -j ${::processorcount}",
  timeout => 900,
}
target

String Required

The name of the Perlbrew[...] resource / environment the declared version of perl should be installed under.

version

String Defaults to $title

The version string of perl 5 release to be installed. Eg.

$ perlbrew available
  perl-5.20.1
  perl-5.18.4
  perl-5.16.3
  perl-5.14.4
  perl-5.12.5
  perl-5.10.1
  perl-5.8.9
  perl-5.6.2
  perl5.005_04
  perl5.004_05
  perl5.003_07
flags

String Defaults to --notest -j ${::processorcount}

The option flag(s) passed to perlbrew install command. Note that the --notest flag dramatically speeds up the ammount of time require to install a perl version.

timeout

String Defaults to 900

This sets the timeout on the perlbrew install command. It may be nessicary to increase this value on a slow host or if the --notest flag is not being passed.

perlbrew::cpanm

Warning: This defined type has parse order dependent behavior. The Perlbrew::Perl[$target] resource must be parsed before this type's declaration.

perlbrew::cpanm { 'Module::Build':
  target     =>'perl-5.20.1', # required
  module     => 'Module::Build', # defaults to resource title
  flags      => '--notest',
  check_name => undef,
  timeout    => undef,
}
target

String Required

The name of the Perlbrew::Perl[...] resource / perl installation to use.

module

String Defaults to $title

The module name to pass to the cpanm utility.

flags

String Defaults to --notest

The set of flag(s), as a string, to pass to cpanm.

check_name

String Defaults to undef

The name of the install perl lib to test for. If left undef, $module/$title is is tested for. This is useful is the name of the installed library does not match the git url / cpan tarball name. Eg.

perlbrew::cpanm { 'https://github.com/Perl-Toolchain-Gang/Module-Build':
  target     =>'perl-5.20.1',
  check_name => 'Module::Build',
}

timeout

String Defaults to undef

The number of seconds the operation should wait before failing due to a timeout.

perlbrew::exec

Warning: This defined type has parse order dependent behavior. The Perlbrew::Perl[$target] resource must be parsed before this type's declaration.

perlbrew::exec { 'perl Build.PL':
  target      => 'perl-5.20.1', # required
  command     => 'perl Build.PL',
  creates     => undef,
  cwd         => undef,
  environment => undef,
  logoutput   => undef,
  onlyif      => undef,
  path        => undef,
  provider    => undef,
  refresh     => undef,
  refreshonly => undef,
  returns     => undef,
  timeout     => undef,
  tries       => undef,
  try_sleep   => undef,
  umask       => undef,
  unless      => undef,
}

This defined type is a thin convenience wrapper around Puppet's core exec type.

target

String Required

The name of the Perlbrew::Perl[...] resource / perl installation to use.

Massaged parameters

Values passed to these parameters are merged with internal arrays before being passed to the core exec type.

  • environment
  • path
Passed through parameters

These parameters behave identically to Puppet's core exec type:

  • command
  • creates
  • cwd
  • logoutput
  • onlyif
  • provider
  • refresh
  • refreshonly
  • returns
  • timeout
  • tries
  • try_sleep
  • umask
  • unless

Limitations

At present, this module is only capable of supporting one perlbrew::perl installed perl version per perlbrew environment. This is due to the logic used in the perlbrew::perl define for the perlbrew switch <version> logic. This should be relatively easy to change if one encounters that use case.

Tested Platforms

  • el6.x

Versioning

This module is versioned according to the Semantic Versioning 2.0.0 specification.
