2.3 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.

reidmv/unzip — version 0.1.2 Nov 4th 2014


Windows only.

Given a source zip file and a directory/file that should result when it is extracted, this defined type implicitly ensures that an archive is extracted.



The fully-qualified path to the zip file to extract. This file must already exist on the system; that is, it cannot be a remote URL. You can use pget or another resource to fetch it first.


A file or folder that will result from extracting the archive. This is used to determine whether or not the archive has been successfully extracted.


Optional. The destination directory into which to extract the archive. If not specified, the dirname of the creates parameter will be used as the destination.


unzip { "example":
  source  => 'C:\src\',
  creates => 'C:\test\bar',
