5.0 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.

puppet/git_resource — version 1.0.2 Oct 20th 2018

Puppet git resource

Build Status

puppetlabs-vcsrepo supports git, however I don't use other vcsrepo types, and bare repos. This is a simpler example implementing a git specific module, while adding automatic dependency against git class which vcsrepo type can not assume.


  • This project have been migrated to puppet-community, please adjust your repo git source.


  • RedHat
  • Debian


git resource

git resource will automatically depend on the git class, and the parent file directory.

git { '/opt/repo/vcsrepo':
  ensure => present,
  commit => '4d2942edc26e7cd144a3178a1a7f6470ea401345',
  origin => '',
  # automatic dependencies:
  # require => [ File['/opt/repo'], Class['git'] ],

git { 'vcsrepo':
  path   => '/opt/repo/vcsrepo2',
  ensure => present,
  branch => 'master',
  latest => true,
  origin => '',

git { 'vcsrepo1':
  path   => '/tmp/vcsrepo1',
  ensure => present,
  tag    => '1.1.0',
  origin => '',


puppet lint, rspec puppet, and acceptance testing in vagrant (or equivalence) should be completed:

  1. bundle install
  2. bundle exec rake lint
  3. bundle exec rake spec
  4. bundle exec rake vagrant
