perl Cookbook

Cookbook Version CI State OpenCollective OpenCollective License

Manages Perl installation and provides cpan_module, to install modules from... CPAN.

Maintainers

This cookbook is maintained by the Sous Chefs. The Sous Chefs are a community of Chef cookbook maintainers working together to maintain important cookbooks. If you’d like to know more please visit sous-chefs.org or come chat with us on the Chef Community Slack in #sous-chefs.

Requirements

Platforms

  • Debian/Ubuntu/Mint
  • RHEL/CentOS/Scientific/Amazon/Oracle
  • Fedora
  • openSUSE
  • Windows

Chef

  • Chef 13.4+

Cookbooks

  • none

Recipes

  • default - On Linux installs perl packages and pulls cpanm from Github. On Windows installs the Strawberry Perl Chocolatey package. Requires Chocolatey to be installed prior to running this cookbook, which can be done with the chocolatey cookbook from the Supermarket.

Attributes

The cookbook ships with a sane set of platform specific attributes for installing perl as well as cpanm. There should be no need to modify these attributes to use this cookbook.

  • node['perl']['packages'] - platform specific packages installed by default recipe
  • node['perl']['cpanm']['path'] - platform specific path for cpanm binary to live
  • node['perl']['cpanm']['url'] - URL to download cpanm script from (*nix only)
  • node['perl']['cpanm']['checksum'] - checksum for the above remote file (*nix only)
  • node['perl']['version'] - version of perl to install. (windows only)
  • node['perl']['cpanm']['path'] - The path to the cpanm binary. On *nix systems this is where the file will be installed. On Windows it's part of Strawberry Perl so no additional installation is required.
  • node['perl']['cpanm']['suppress_diff'] - Whether or not to suppress the diff of the cpanm file.

Resources

cpan_module

Actions

  • :install - install the module (default action)
  • :uninstall - uninstall the module

Properties

  • module_name - The name of the module if it's different than the name of the resource property
  • force - To force the install within cpanm (default: false)
  • test - To do a test install (default: false)
  • version - Any version string cpanm would find acceptable
  • cwd - A path to change into before running cpanm

Examples

To install a module from CPAN:

cpan_module 'App::Munchies'

Optionally, installation can forced with the 'force' parameter.

cpan_module 'App::Munchies'
  force true
end

You can also use cpanm's version mechanism to grab a specific version, or glob a version.

Exactly version 1.01 of App::Munchies will be installed:

cpan_module 'App::Munchies'
  version '== 1.01'
end

At least version 1.01 of App::Munchies will be installed:

cpan_module 'App::Munchies'
  version '1.01'
end

At least version 1.01 will be installed, but not version 2:

cpan_module 'App::Munchies'
  version '>= 1.01, < 2.0'
end

Additionally, you can use the cpan_module LWRP to delete a given package (uses cpanm's --uninstall param)

cpan_module 'App::Munchies'
  action :uninstall
end
