3.8 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.

meltwater/get_class_params — version 0.1.0 Apr 23rd 2014


This Puppet function accepts a class name as argument and will retrieve the class names parameters and their values. Note that this only retrieves a the class definition parameters, not the parameters of an instance of the class.

An example of a use case is to generate a script that can handle all the parameters of an application managed by Puppet and use those variables to override the application configuration at runtime. This works out nicely with Docker, where you'd build a container using Puppet, but on deploying it to different environments you'd like to alter several parameters without rebuilding the container.


class_param_hash = get_class_params("myapp")
