augeasproviders_core: library for building alternative Augeas-based providers for Puppet

Module description

This module provides a library for module authors to create new types and providers around config files, using the Augeas configuration library to read and modify them.

The advantage of using Augeas over the default Puppet parsedfile implementations is that Augeas will go to great lengths to preserve file formatting and comments, while also failing safely when needed.

If you're a user, you want to see the main augeasproviders project at augeasproviders.com.


Ensure both Augeas and ruby-augeas 0.3.0+ bindings are installed and working as normal.

See Puppet/Augeas pre-requisites.

Development documentation

See docs/ (run make) or augeasproviders.com.
