Build Status

chef-alfresco is a Chef cookbook that provides a modular, configurable and extensible way to install an Alfresco node/stack; alfresco::default parses node['alfresco']['components'] and includes other alfresco::* recipes accordingly.

It is tested on Centos 7.x and Ubuntu 14.04 (soon on Centos 6.7)

This project is a fork of the original chef-alfresco developed by Fletcher Nichol; the code have been almost entirely rewritten, however the original implementation still works with Community 4.0.x versions and provides a different approach to Alfresco installation (using Alfresco Linux installer).

A big thanks to Nichol for starting this effort!
