  • Rake is sophisticated test runner written in Ruby and is a standard way of running test. You can do it with help of systems such as Rake. 

  • You can see example of Rake files when you generate new Puppet module with puppet module generate companyname-modulename command. 

  • In root directory of your project you will find Rakefile where you will see default configuration. 

  • In default configuration you can see that validation task is already done and ready to use. Just make sure that paths are all good.

  • To run validation task you need to make sure that gems mentioned in Gemfile are installed. You can do it with bundle install

  • To run validation task just run bundle exec rake validate.
