Hello, general idea is to get template processed from my custom provider. I've created custom type and one provider for it. When user calls that type i would like to invoke tamplate('aaaa/bbb.erb') Or i can go through path: , but I'll get error as there is no scope variable defined. or even i could use: Puppet::Parser::Files.findtemplate(path, scope.compiler.environment.tos) .. like in TemplateWrapper code ... but i do not have that scope defined.

Actually it is more generic question - how to use functions, classes etc. from custom ... (more)

You may be able to call a function from within your provider (custom_functions) if the function is pluginsynced onto your agent. (Haven't tried it myself)

But you cannot access variables or templates from some manifest because they are not part of the catalog. Keep in mind that catalog compilation (including evaluating templates) happens on the master whereas your provider will always run on the agent.

What are your trying to accomplish?
