given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

meltwater/get_x_params — version 0.1.0 Jul 22nd 2014



Two Puppet functions that retrieve the parameter/argument list of Puppet Classes and Resource/Defined Types. Note that the functions do not retrieve the actual value that will be used for said parameters/arguments, but rather the default that is part of the class/type definition.


parameter_key_val_hash = get_class_params("myclass1")
parameter_key_val_hash = get_define_params("mydefine1")

Then do something nice like use a Puppet template to create a wrapper script around your software that can accept and override all the parameters that were defined in Puppet.
