cdist configures your system and is similar to other configuration management systems like cfengine, bcfg2, chef and puppet, but it ticks differently

  • cdist sticks completly to the KISS (keep it simple and stupid) paradigma o cdist's core is very small (< 1k lines of code) o There is only one type to extend cdist called type. o One main development target: It must be incredible easy to add new types.
  • cdist is UNIX o It reuses existing tools like cat, find, mv, ... o cdist's documentation is bundled as manpages
  • cdist is written in POSIX shell o No special requirements like high level interpreters needed on server or target
