4.6 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.

Deploys lsyncd and one or many processes

###Module Description

The main module does a basic installation of lsyncd components and directories. A 'process' define is responsible for creating configuration and running an lsyncd process under a specific user. As this is a define it allows multiple lsyncd processes to run concurrently and as different users.


include ::lsyncd

lsyncd::process { 'puppet':
  content => template('path/to/template.erb'),
  owner   => 'puppet',
  group   => 'puppet',
