Puppet Module for Pupistry

This is a companion module for Pupistry deployments. If you are using Pupistry, it is recommended you add this module to all your nodes to make Puppet work smoothly in masterful mode.

Please see for more details.

What it does

Whilst Pupistry does most of the heavy lifting we need, this module helps out by adding functionality lost when in masterlesss mode (like pluginsync) and sets up Pupistry daemon for background application of new Puppet config.

It isn't mandatory, you can use Pupistry without it if you take steps to add the bits you need/want to your own manifests.


This module sets Pupistry up with various sensible defaults including installation of the daemon and ensuring latest version installed via Rubygems.

If you wish to change any behaviors, just review the configuration in manifests/params.pp and create an override entry in Hiera - no need to have to fork the module.

Example of override in Hiera to disable daemon:

pupistry::install_daemon: false

Overrides that should impact all systems can go into common.yaml, otherwise just selectively put the override into the most appropiate YAML file for your layout.


This module requires the following modules, make sure they are also included in your Puppetfile or other module dependency handling tool.

  • puppetlabs/stdlib (general functions)
  • jethrocarr/initfact (to handle init system detection)
