This project extends the cdist configuration management tool with community-maitained types which are either too specific to fit/be maintained in cdist itself or were not accepted in code cdist but could still be useful.
This project does not have releases and is continously updated: see git history for change log. You will find HTML documentation at contrib.cdi.st.
We would recommend that you clone this repository next to your regular
cdist config directory, then setup
conf_dir with relative paths in
An example of this would be:
# contents of cdist.cfg next to cdist-contrib [GLOBAL] # Notice that types defined in last dir win and can override native types. # Consider using a prefix for your own types to avoid collisions. conf_dir = cdist-contrib:cdist-private
And you would run cdist from the same directory as follows:
cdist config -g cdist.cfg # Or setup your CDIST_CONFIG_FILE environment variable and run as usual
