Bugsnag monitors application stability, so you can make data-driven decisions on whether you should be building new features, or fixing bugs. Learn more.

PuppetLabs’ nodejs module is unfortunately quite out of date, providing Node.js 0.6, however there is a simple way to get the latest Node:

  1. Install the puppetlabs-apt module
  2. Add ppa:chris-lea/node.js to apt
  3. Install nodejs
  4. Steal the npm provider from the puppetlabs-nodejs module
  5. Install a npm module

Code:


Stealing the npm package provider:

cd your/puppet/modules/directory
mkdir -p npm-provider/lib/puppet/provider/package
cd npm-provider/lib/puppet/provider/package
wget https://raw.github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-nodejs/master/lib/puppet/provider/package/npm.rb

Puppet Code:

class prepare {
  class { 'apt': }
  apt::ppa { 'ppa:chris-lea/node.js': }
}
include prepare
 
package {'nodejs': ensure => present, require => Class['prepare'],}
 
package {'grunt-cli':
    ensure   => present,
    provider => 'npm',
    require  => Package['nodejs'],
}
