What is a PP file?

An PP file is a manifest used by the Puppet configuration server. It contains a case statement that sets a program's name, and it lists the resources used to install and run that program on the Puppet server. PP files can contain conditional logic and declare resources for multiple programs.

Puppet is a tool that helps server administrators manage and automate server configuration. The Puppet platform uses several packages to run server configuration and management programs written using the Puppet programming language. These programs are comprised of resources and classes that are declared and run using a PP manifest file.

Each PP file includes one or more service names, a list of packages the file is used to install on the Puppet server, a list of services the manifest is used to run, and a path to a .CONF configuration file. The Puppet server processes PP files while building catalogs, which are used to apply any needed changes to a managed server.

How to open a PP file

You can open and edit a PP file in any text or source code editor. Source code editors, such as Microsoft Visual Studio Code and GitHub Atom contain helpful features that make reading and editing PP files easier.
