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

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
