puppet-parser - Interact directly with the parser.
puppet parser action
Note that any setting that's valid in the configuration
file is also a valid long argument, although it may or may not be
relevant to the present action. For example,
run_mode are valid
settings, so you can specify
--server <servername>, or
--run_mode <runmode> as an argument.
See the configuration file documentation at
http://docs.puppetlabs.com/puppet/latest/reference/configuration.html for the
full list of acceptable parameters. A commented list of all
configuration options can also be generated by running puppet with
console, but other options such as
dotare sometimes available.
dump- Outputs a dump of the internal parse tree for debugging
puppet parser dump [--e source] [--[no-]validate] -e source| [manifest ...]
This action parses and validates the Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog or syncing any resources. It automatically turns on the future parser for the parsing.
The command accepts one or more manifests (.pp) files, or an -e followed by the puppet source text. If no arguments are given, the stdin is read (unless it is attached to a terminal)
The output format of the dumped tree is not API, it may change from time to time.
--e <source> -
dump one source expression given on the command line.
--[no-]validate - Whether or not to validate the parsed result, if no-validate only syntax errors are reported
A dump of the resulting AST model unless there are syntax or validation errors.
validate- Validate the syntax of one or more Puppet manifests.
puppet parser validate [manifest] [manifest ...]
This action validates Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog or syncing any resources. If no manifest files are provided, it will validate the default site manifest.
When validating with --parser current, the validation stops after the first encountered issue.
When validating with --parser future, multiple issues per file are reported up to the settings of max_error, and max_warnings. The processing stops after having reported issues for the first encountered file with errors.
Nothing, or the first syntax error encountered.
Validate the default site manifest at /etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp:
$ puppet parser validate
Validate two arbitrary manifest files:
$ puppet parser validate init.pp vhost.pp
Validate from STDIN:
$ cat init.pp | puppet parser validate
