Vagrant is a great tool from Hashicorp (makers of tools such as Terraform and Vault) for prototyping infrastructure for applications. It will let you start up one or more VMs of any type with any arbitrary configuration.

This post is the last post in a three-part series on Puppet module development using the Puppet Development Kit (PDK), adapted from a presentation for the St. Louis Puppet Users Group.

In part 1, we covered getting started with PDK. In part 2, we talked about customizing PDK for your own use. It’s been a while since those parts were released. Originally part 3 was going to talk about annoyances, gotchas, and various other random oddities in PDK. Fortunately, there has been a ton of development work going on in PDK so most of that is in the distant past.

Now, for part 3, my final post on PDK (for now), we’re going to explore adding additional test coverage to converted modules.

I recently was attempting, with little success, to set a custom environment for a subset of rspec-puppet tests. After much Googling and perusing the rspec-puppet code base, I finally came up with a method that met my needs nicely.
