matze 13e97d171b __netbox*: added systemd socket support
The Gunicorn type now supports systemd sockets only. With uWSGI, you can
choose between it and the native sockets based on the parameters chosen.
This is done because it could not be implemented to have multiple
protocols with the systemd sockets (so you may choose).

The systemd socket unit file is generally available, so both types use
the same script to generate the socket unit file.

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 for details.

Using cdist-contrib

We would recommend that you clone this repository next to your regular cdist config directory, then setup conf_dir with relative paths in cdist configuration.

An example of this would be:

# contents of cdist.cfg next to cdist-contrib
# 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
