This module can be configured to run directly from source and configured to do local development, sending the commands to the node over HTTPS/HTTP. The following instructions explain how to configure your local development environment.
This module requires one dependency in addition to Puppet that must be checked out as a Git working copy in the context of ongoing development in addition to running Puppet from source.
- Ruby client for eAPI: rbeapi
The dependency is managed via the bundler Gemfile and the environment needs to be configured to use local Git copies:
cd /workspace git clone https://github.com/arista-eosplus/rbeapi.git export GEM_RBEAPI_VERSION=file:///workspace/rbeapi
Once the dependencies are installed and the environment configured, then install all of the dependencies:
git clone https://github.com/arista-eosplus/puppet-eos.git cd puppet-eos bundle install --path .bundle/gems
Once everything is installed, run the spec tests to make sure everything is working properly:
bundle exec rspec spec
Finally, configure the eapi.conf file for rbeapi See rbeapi for details and set the connection environment variable to run sanity tests using puppet resource:
