AlterEGO-Labs chef kitchen

Chef is a systems and cloud infrastructure automation framework that makes it easy to deploy servers and applications to any physical, virtual, or cloud location, no matter the size of the infrastructure.

chef-solo is an open source version of the chef-client that allows using cookbooks with nodes without requiring access to a server.

In our company we started using chef-solo for automation process of bootstrapping bare servers for rails environment. In this repository we share all our work in this sphere and hope it helps somebody.


Kitchen for configurating server by standart rails components:

  1. rvm + defaulting ruby (i think it must be 2.0.0)
  2. nginx + passenger or unicorn (in future)
  3. mysql
  4. postgres

Testing kitchen

For testing kitchen you may use vagrant. It used by default. If you don't used vagrant yet follow this instructions:

gem install vagrant
vagrant box add precise64

And then execute:

vagrant up

After your kitchen has changed run provisioner again:

vagrant provision
