Puppet validator Jenkins pluginJul 18, 2013 · 1 minute read
For the last couple of months I’ve mainly been working on automating our product delivery process. From building artifacts with Maven to packaging them as RPM together with generated Puppet modules for configuration, provisioning virtual machines through The Foreman the whole chain is now almost covered.
I delivered a couple of Maven and Jenkins plugins along the way and the Puppet Validator Jenkins Plugin is a simplified version of one of the Jenkins plugins I wrote. It does was its name says it does: the plugin scans the project workspace and validates the Puppet classes it finds against the Puppet parser tool (post-build step).
