When sudo prompts for the password, it's hidden because it's at the end of the curl download stats.

Steps to Reproduce:

Run chefdk_bootstrap script.


Explanation of why we need to ask for your sudo password. Password prompt on it's own line.


This script will:

1. Install the latest ChefDK package
2. Create some chef directories in your user profile (home) directory
3. Download the 'chefdk_bootstrap' cookbook via Berkshelf
4. Run 'chef-client' to install the rest of the tools you will need

** Installing ChefDK

Installing ChefDK 0.10.0
