I am happy to announce the release of version 0.6.0 of the Puppet
Development Kit (PDK) to the Puppet community. The open-source PDK
facilitates an easy, unified development workflow for Puppet modules, and
should appeal both to newcomers and experienced developers.
For a list of enhancements and bug fixes since the 0.5.0 release, please
refer to the included CHANGELOG (https://github.com/
With the PDK you can:
- Quickly get started with module development best practices and tools
to develop, test and publish high-quality Puppet modules with confidence
- Shift quality to the left by catching issues earlier and faster,
before Puppet code is applied to live infrastructure
- Unit test modules from their workstation to ensure that Puppet code is
creating and managing resources as intended
You can learn more about how to install and use the PDK by reviewing the
README (https://github.com/puppetlabs/pdk) or the Getting Started guide (
