So I downloaded and installed gepetto plugin on Eclipse on top of downloading the standalone Gepetto itself.

I'm ok with using either one.

However, how do you compile/run/test or whatever you call it to test the puppet codes you wrote?

So for Java in Eclipse, you make it run on JDK virtual machine.

But how does this happen in gepetto? Or is this merely a text editing tool with which I have to manually export the modules and pp to a puppet master?

Thank you.

You can author all of your Puppet code with Geppetto and save it locally on your development machine. Then using Vagrant and shared folders, you can boot up a VM and puppet apply that code within the VM to test it. This will not involve a Puppet master at all.

There are some interesting projects out there to automatically kick off the Puppet code when it's changed and all of its tests (that you wrote) pass. Here's an example with a lot of explanation:

In any case, you can use whatever text editor you prefer - vi, emacs, Geppetto, etc. - as long as you are saving the Puppet code files (.pp) to the correct directory.
