    A nice alternative to librarian is r10k which solves some of the known issues of librarian:

    It can read librarian Puppetfiles, so no major change is required when replacing librarian with r10k.

      Thanks to extend my toolbox !

      Can you elaborate on the known issues ? I’ve seen some issues about version with dashes.
      I must admit that I’m happy with the tool and using the basic features : git repo with sha or local file system. (no module from the forge)
      Do you have other tools to suggest, other best practices ?

        The major issue of librarian which r10k tries to solve is being better when it comes to failing source repositories (forge, git, local repo, …).
        See also the section “Handling failure” here:

        Furthermore, it seems to have a focus on being more efficient/faster.

        I have to admit to never having really giving librarian a try, as r10k seemed to be superior to it from the start, so I went straight to r10k.
