puppet-recursive_directory

Puppet module to allow for files to be created recursively from a folder of templates

The benefit here is that you no longer need to define file resources for each and every template file

This should help to substantially shorten manifests that include lots of template files

usage

recursive_directory {'some_unique_title':
      source_dir => 'custom_module/source_dir',
      dest_dir   => '/tmp',
      file_mode  => '0644',
      dir_mode   => '0700',
      owner      => 'root',
      group      => 'root'
}

This will copy all files from <module_path>custom_module/templates/source_dir folder and interpolate variables the same as when using the template() function inside of the manifest itself and put them into /tmp
