5.0 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.

This module configures an Erlang package repository and then installs the Erlang language packages.


What erlang affects

  • erlang repository files
  • erlang package

Beginning with erlang

Getting started with this module is extremely simple. We've chosen sane defaults for both Debian/Ubuntu and CentOS/RHEL OS's, so all you have to do is add the following to your puppet code:

include erlang


All options and configuration can be done through interacting with the parameters on the main erlang class. These are now documented via Puppet Strings

You can view example usage in REFERENCE.




Bintray was supported as an upstream repository in the past. Since JFrog shut it down and deleted the repositories, Bintray support was removed from this module.
