A Django implementation of the Puppet Forge web API.

Project description


For those with short attention spans, the following creates a full mirror of Puppet Forge:

$ pip install Django $ pip install semantic_version $ git clone $ cd django-forge $ ./ syncdb –noinput $ ./ mirror_forge $ FORGE_DEBUG=1 ./ runserver

Point your Puppet configuration file (/etc/puppet.conf or ~/.puppet/puppet.conf) to the forge:

module_repository = http://localhost:8000

You should now be able search and install with puppet module.

Publishing can be done with interface at /admin/ – create an account with:

$ ./ createsuperuser


The Puppet Forge ( is a central authority for finding and installing Puppet modules. This package implements the first version (v1) of the JSON web services necessary to house (or mirror) a private, stand-alone version of the Forge.

The Puppet Forge “standard” is undocumented, and the resources here were reverse-engineered from the behavior of the current API endpoints (which are buried in the Puppet module tool source code). Care is taken to try and imitate the behavior of the Forge whenever possible.

Simplicity and ease-of-use are the goals of this package.
