Opskelaton is an opinionated bootstrap tool for local Sandbox projects, it aims to solve the following common issues:

  • Developing Puppet modules on master machines which results with 'It works on my master' approach.
  • Large monolithic Puppet code bases, code isn't modular or reusable.
  • Implicit/Missing dependencies including: Ruby version, OS, gems, modules.
  • Manual steps in setting up and maintaining such projects.
  • Non standard layout, projects missing README and LICENSE files, no clear separation between developed and dependant code.
  • Lacking development guidelines (for example extracting general modules and exporting them).
  • No continues build, linting and testing, provisioning code is second class citizen.

Opskeleton comes to solve these issues by introducing a decentralized development work flow with pre-defined layout, packaging and dependency management.
