Man Page: puppet doc

Included in Puppet Enterprise 2017.2. A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.

NAME

puppet-doc - Generate Puppet references

SYNOPSIS

Generates a reference for all Puppet types. Largely meant for internal Puppet Inc. use. (Deprecated)

USAGE

puppet doc [-h|--help] [-l|--list] [-r|--reference reference-name]

DESCRIPTION

This deprecated command generates a Markdown document to stdout describing all installed Puppet types or all allowable arguments to puppet executables. It is largely meant for internal use and is used to generate the reference document available on the Puppet Inc. web site.

For Puppet module documentation (and all other use cases) this command has been superseded by the "puppet-strings" module - see https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-strings for more information.

This command (puppet-doc) will be removed once the puppetlabs internal documentation processing pipeline is completely based on puppet-strings.

OPTIONS

--help

Print this help message

--reference

Build a particular reference. Get a list of references by running 'puppet doc --list'.

EXAMPLE

$ puppet doc -r type > /tmp/type_reference.markdown
