As with other DevOps programs, Puppet automates changes, eliminating manual script-driven changes. Nor is Puppet a pure programming language, such as PHP. Instead, Puppet uses a declarative, model-based approach to IT automation. This enables Puppet to define infrastructure as code and enforce system configuration with programs.
Puppet Vs Ansible
In Puppet, the configuration management tool syntax is decoupled from the underlying operating systems and applications' syntax. This enables you to define high-level concepts such as user, application, and service. Puppet then translates these higher-level concepts into the operating system and software setup instructions. Puppet models everything as data: the node's current state, the desired end state, and the actions needed to move from one to the other. Each Puppet-managed server instance receives a catalog of resources and relationships, compares it with the desired system state, and makes changes as needed to bring the system into compliance with the ideal state.
You use these programs to manage all of the software, services, and configuration on given systems, with an end goal of building complete system configurations in code. This is challenging.
Puppet encourages its users to keep this complexity under control by writing code that is reusable, easy to configure, and easy to refactor. The main method to accomplish this is by using Puppet roles and profiles , which separate your code into three levels:. All this—more tools, languages, profiles, processes—may seem as though it adds complexity. In reality, it gives you space to build practical, business-specific interfaces for system configurations.
This makes hierarchical data easier to use, system configurations easier to read, and refactoring easier. Think of roles and profiles as a pattern for creating your Puppet-controlled systems. Expect to change them over time. Do not mistake them for a straitjacket for your servers' layout. Puppet code is made up mostly of resource declarations.
A resource describes a specific element about the system's desired state. For example, it can include that a specific file should exist or a package should be installed. A Puppet program, called a manifest, has a file name that uses the ". Within these manifests are "classes," named code blocks that can be called by other modules. Classes generally configure large or medium-size chunks of functionality, such as all of the packages, configuration files, and services needed to run an application. Classes make it easier to reuse Puppet code and improve readability.
Except for the mainsite. Puppet modules are Puppet's fundamental building blocks. They are used for abstracting the differences between operating platforms. This causes head turns to be slightly difficult and sometimes the floor puppeteer has to hold the strings somewhat lower down as well to guarantee the right head movement. Shooting a gun brings its own set of problems. It usually involves two or three characters with guns and each puppet needs to have a special hand with a gun attached to its arm with two tubes and wires coming from the gun which have to be threaded down the costume's sleeve, body and trouser leg to come out by the puppet's foot.

The tubes are attached to cylinders of gas and the wires connected to an electric power source. When the gases are fed to the gun and the power is actuated, the gun fires. The puppet's hand is strung separately to bring the weapon up into the right position. The puppets can be fitted with different heads to make them frown, smile or blink their eyes.
This last category, the so-called 'blinkers', can no longer move their eyes, however. The puppet's eyes were painted wood at first but for Stingray plastic is used, the Thunderbirds characters have glass eyes and for those in Captain Scarlet the plastic eyeball has a photograph of a human iris and pupil glued into it by hand. The heads of extras and incidental characters are ready-made shells with eye and lip-sync mechanisms inserted which are then built up with plasticine since there is simply no time to build a whole new puppet. Care has to be taken, though, since it is quite easy to slice off the nose when one of the strings is brought across the face.
The puppet's wigs are made of mohair which is about half as fine as human hair.
The loose bits are brushed off and the rest is cut up into pieces of the right length. It is a very time consuming process, especially if a straight hair style is involved.
In that case the mohair is wetted and put around thick rollers which straightens it out. Short ordinary hair styles are taken straight off the length. The anatomy of a puppet. Group of heads gracing the back cover of the Phillips auction catalog. The eye mechanism revealed. But wondered why my solution doesnt work as expected. Also, if 2nd resource was executed first then it would just create empty, executable file just like it happens in my case , or am i wrong?
I figured it out and answered below peterSchiza. Therefore, your second resource cannot be executing first.

AlexHarvey i was not talking about manifest ordering and I was also explaining why his theory about this occurring because the second resource executes first is not valid. You appear to be running into an undocumented behaviour. Alex Harvey Alex Harvey 8, 1 1 gold badge 18 18 silver badges 40 40 bronze badges. Sadly, it doesn't work.
Any ideas how can it be done? Or what am i doing wrong? I just tested it and, sadly, as you say, it doesn't work.

That leaves us only with bad options here, and I updated the post. Thanks for reply. I've decide to use another approach and included it in my first post don't really know if its better than yours tho. Oh good idea. Yes, I think that's the best answer. You should really make that an "answer" rather than adding it to the question.
