Low friction way of working tests into your Puppet module workflow.

Module Description

tester will install Jenkins and a simple job that will clone a git repo and run Puppet Lint tests against it. All plugin prerequisites are accounted for.


Make sure the rtyler-jenkins module is in your modulepath. The repository containing the code you want to test needs to have a Rakefile defining the tests you want to run. I have borrowed the Rakefile from rtyler-jenkins for my use.

require 'rubygems'
require 'rake'
require 'puppetlabs_spec_helper/rake_tasks'
require 'puppet-lint/tasks/puppet-lint'
require 'puppet-syntax/tasks/puppet-syntax'

exclude_paths = [

# Make sure we don't have the default rake task floating around

PuppetLint.configuration.relative = true
PuppetLint::RakeTask.new(:lint) do |l|
  l.disable_checks = %w(80chars class_inherits_from_params_class)
  l.ignore_paths = exclude_paths
  l.fail_on_warnings = true
  l.log_format = "FUK %{path}:%{linenumber}:%{check}:%{KIND}:%{message}"

PuppetSyntax.exclude_paths = exclude_paths

task :default => [:lint, :spec, :syntax]
