This cookbook installs the OpenStack Dashboard service Horizon as part of the OpenStack Essex reference deployment Chef for OpenStack. The http://github.com/opscode/openstack-chef-repo contains documentation for using this cookbook in the context of a full OpenStack deployment. Horizon is installed from packages.

The following cookbooks are dependencies:
-installs and configures the openstack dashboard package, sets up the horizon database schema/user, and installs an appropriate apache config/site file
-uses chef search to discover details of where the database (default mysql) and keystone api are installed so we don't need to explicitly set them in our attributes file for this cookbook
