       puppet-parser - Interact directly with the parser.


       puppet parser action


       Note  that  any  setting  that's  valid  in  the  configuration  file is also a valid long
       argument, although it may or may not be relevant  to  the  present  action.  For  example,
       server  and  run_mode  are  valid  settings,  so you can specify --server <servername>, or
       --run_mode <runmode> as an argument.

       See          the          configuration          file           documentation           at  for  the full list of acceptable
       parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated by running
       puppet with --genconfig.

       --render-as FORMAT
              The format in which to render output. The most common formats are json, s (string),
              yaml, and console, but other options such as dot are sometimes available.

              Whether to log verbosely.

              Whether to log debug information.


       dump - Outputs a dump of the internal parse tree for debugging

              puppet parser dump [--e source]  [--[no-]validate]  [--format  old,  pn,  or  json]
              [--pretty] [--format old|pn|json] [--pretty] { -e source | [templates ...] }


              This  action parses and validates the Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog
              or syncing any resources.

              The output format can be controlled using the --format old|pn|json where:  *  'old'
              is  the  default,  but now deprecated format which is not API. * 'pn' is the Puppet
              Extended S-Expression Notation. * 'json' outputs the same graph as  'pn'  but  with
              JSON syntax.

              The output will be "pretty printed" when the option --pretty is given together with
              --format 'pn' or 'json'. This option has no effect on the 'old' format.

              The command accepts one or more manifests (.pp) files, or an  -e  followed  by  the
              puppet  source  text.  If  no  arguments are given, the stdin is read (unless it is
              attached to a terminal)

              The output format of the dumped tree is intended for debugging purposes and is  not
              API, it may change from time to time.

              OPTIONS --e <source> - dump one source expression given on the command line.

              --format  <old,  pn,  or json> - Get result in 'old' (deprecated format), 'pn' (new
              format), or 'json' (new format in JSON).

              --pretty - Pretty print output. Only applicable together with --format pn or json

              --[no-]validate - Whether or not to validate the parsed result, if no-validate only
              syntax errors are reported


              A dump of the resulting AST model unless there are syntax or validation errors.

       validate - Validate the syntax of one or more Puppet manifests.

              puppet parser validate [manifest] [manifest ...]


              This  action validates Puppet DSL syntax without compiling a catalog or syncing any
              resources. If no manifest files are provided, it will  validate  the  default  site

              When  validating  multiple  issues  per  file  are  reported  up to the settings of
              max_error, and max_warnings. The processing stops after having reported issues  for
              the first encountered file with errors.


              Nothing, or the first syntax error encountered.



       Validate the default site manifest at /etc/puppetlabs/puppet/manifests/site.pp:

       $ puppet parser validate

       Validate two arbitrary manifest files:

       $ puppet parser validate init.pp vhost.pp

       Validate from STDIN:
