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.

rcoleman/mac_profiles_handler — version 0.3.0 Mar 27th 2014

mac_profiles_handler module for Puppet


This module provides two resource types for interacting with OS X configuration profiles.

The profile_manager resource type is the back-end type that interacts with /usr/bin/profiles for creating, destroying and verifying a resource type. The mac_profiles_handler::manage resource type is user-facing and handles the management of the actual files.

A basic fact is also provided to list installed profiles.


You can use an ERB template instead of a mobileconfig:

You must pass the profilers identifier as your namevar, ensure accepts present or absent and file_source behaves the same way source behaves for file.


Improve provider parsing.
Handle more types of configuration profiles.
The fact should create a fact for each profile, bonus points for using system_profiler.
Improve documentation when author isn't presenting the next morning.
