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.

negz/lsyncd — version 1.2.2 Mar 15th 2016


Yet another lsyncd Puppet module. This module allows you to configure lsyncd replication via either Puppet resources or Hiera. Currently only the default.rsync process is supported. Feel free to send an issue or a PR if you need to support other processes.


To configure a replication via a Puppet resource:

lsyncd::rsync { 'myawesomereplication':
  source  => '/tmp/source',
  target  => '/tmp/target',
  options => {
    'archive': true,

Or via Hiera:

    source: /tmp/source
    target: /tmp/target
      archive: true


You might prefer this lsyncd module for Ubuntu, or this one for RHEL.
