Summary

In this chapter we had a whirlwind tour of Puppet, and explored the various ways we could use it to provision a server for our projects. This included:

  • Installing software with Puppet
  • Managing cron jobs with Puppet
  • Managing users and groups with Puppet
  • Running commands with Puppet
  • How modules, classes, and stages work
  • How to use Puppet to provision a machine

In the next chapter we will look at Chef, another provisioning tool which has support built into Vagrant.
